Rob Math’s playing has been praised by and impressed heavy weight guitar greats such as Paul Gilbert and Johnny Hiland. After graduating from the prestigious Berklee College of Music, he eventually moved to LA and was discovered by the Juno Award winning, producer and song writer, Dave Tyson (Alannah Myles, Amanda Marshall, Hall and Oates). Dave listened to a few of Rob's demos and was blown away and decided to give the then-unknown guitarist a shot, and hired him to lay down guitar for his next record. Recognized for his diverse talents, he has since played on albums by platinum selling artists SEAL, NELLY, and TONI BRAXTON and has recorded for many other noted artists including JoJo, Macy Gray, The Pussy Cat Dolls and Nick Lachey to name a few. As a songwriter Rob has had “cuts” on Toni Braxton’s latest album “Libra” (Shadowless, Places) and Ashley Parker Angel’s debut “Soundtrack to your life” (Alright OK, Who cares) and has written for many others. He was also the guitarist for Billie Myers and toured with her after playing on her second album Vertigo. Currently, Rob has shifted his focus back to playing live. He can be seen performing and touring with the band PLAYER known for their #1 hit “Baby Come Back” (with original members Peter Beckett and Ron Moss). He is also a member of the LA based hard rock metal band Soul Sign founded by Bjorn Englen (Yngwie Malmsteen, Quiet Riot) on bass, and featuring Michael Olivieri (Leatherwolf) on vocals and Michael Taylor on drums. Rob will be performing with Annabella Lwin of Bow Wow Wow in 2010 as well as various other artists and most recently the group Five Points from NY featured in the N7 films documentary “State of Rock”.
Available soon is Rob’s first solo all-instrumental CD as composer, arranger, producer and performer. Watch for his band "The Rob Math Psycho Circus" that will be performing around the Los Angeles area.
