recorded for the "Perfections" album but didn't really fit in with the rest of the Album. Tree has released it now as it's a great song for all Friday the 13's.
Bob have been gigging around Wellington (the Capitol of New Zealand) as a Keyboard Player for just over 15 years. His work has also included playing solo piano in the local cocktail bars and leading restaurants and he have also played with a few funk/jazz groups, cover rockers, theatre orchestras as well as several swing/dance bands, the most popular being the Benj Berryman Hiptet back in the 1990's.
During 2007 he worked in a Joe Cocker tribute band called simply "Hitchcock Railway" which was a lot of fun. He has always loved music and picked up a guitar very young, which was his passion until he turned 18.
Heading off to Victoria University to continue his Education, he enrolled in the Classical Music programme as they did not have Courses on Rock'n'Roll or Jazz. This introduced him to the piano and of course, the techniques and styles of music's structures and forms. It has proved an invaluable training for him and he completed a Degree on Music Composition.
In 2003 hemade an album of his own material whitch he started composing back in the 1990's. A strictly private project, he sold all the pressings at his gigs and approached a number of local record shops about stocking it too. It was here (at Wonderland Records) that he met Dene Kellaway who was very excited about the album and it turned out he owned a record label called Tree.
He signed Bob up in 2007. A major make-over of the cover came next and suddenly the album had been titled "Stronger" and launched Globally as a diital release and supplied to 27 global mp3 downloading sites like iTunes, eMusic, Spotify and many more On-Line Stores..
After a slow start, things picked up in 2008 and the title song "Stronger" made it into Tree's Top 20 Digital Sales Charts. He found the new way music is sold and delivered, alien having grown up with first records, then compact discs but the pace continued to increase during the last part of 2008 and I he worked with Chris Adams in the UK on the Single "Dust In The Wind" and completed his second Album "Perfection" , which was released in late September, 2009, as a digital release on Tree.
With his Mother becoming seriously ill and needing full time care, Bob stopped his musical career to care for her. She has since passed away and Bob is back performing and giving piano lessons We can expect to hear more from Bob in the future..
