When he’s not writing and recording music he likes to stand in fields near the ocean.
The PomPoms began in Grand Forks North Dakota in the not so distant past when Rob took up violin at age five. He became known far and wide at family gatherings as “Little Robbie the Fiddle Player.” Particularly for his extra fast rendition of Turkey in the Straw.
In middle school he took up trumpet and played in the marching band and by high school he had added bass guitar to the mix for coolness and in hopes of attracting females.
He soon moved to Minneapolis and joined his first band Edgar. A few years later he found himself in California, first in the Bay Area and then in Santa Barbara where he reunited with some of his former bandmates as The Sympathetics.
These days he is living in Los Angeles, and as always he is working on some new songs.
