Growing up in both the UK and Qatar, Rob was a guitar prodigy and was doing club dates & sessions at 14. He has been with Janiroquai since 1999 and has toured, played on albums, and co-written hit songs. His recording credits include Don Airey (Deep Purple), Beverly Knight, Kylie Minogue, Anastasia, Lighthouse Family, Katy Perry, JP Cooper, Era, Gabriella Aplin, Will Young, Julian Perretta, Duke Dumont, Paloma Faith, Robbie Williams, Lego Batman (Soundtrack), Louisa Johnson and The Ministry of Sound, Kanye West and more.
Rob shared stories about growing up in the Middle East… playing with Don Airey & Robbie Williams… clever marketing ideas he used to generate business for some of his side hustles… tracing some of his most profitable gigs through an encounter that happened 14 years ago… Divorce, why it’s ok to be wrong, beans on toast, and more. Lots of laughter here:
