BIO

Rob Falgiano lives under the Big Singer-Songwriter Tent, but the passionate Buffalo, NY, artist has more diverse, eclectic influences than many strummers. He breaks musical eggs for the thrill of discovery, and his style continues to evolve with each recording.

Falgiano has 5 independent full-length solo CDs, and 8 discs in all. Nice Mouth - released Oct 2013 – is a 14-song, 60-minute effort exploring rock and soul, with a jazz undercurrent.  His style has drawn comparisons to alternative-acoustic-pop artists like John Mayer, Damien Rice, David Byrne, Squeeze, and Elvis Costello. Rob's 9th CD - Little Vision - is in progress, and slated for an early 2017 release.

Opening slots for more than a dozen nationals include: Jakob Dylan (The Wallflowers), Nickel Creek, Ingrid Michaelson, Glen Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket), Nellie McKay, 10,000 Maniacs, Matthew Good Band, Chris Trapper / The Pushstars, Goo Goo Dolls, Emerson Hart (ex-Tonic), 54-40, Deep Blue Something, The Pursuit of Happiness, and Kevin Hearn (of Barenaked Ladies). He performs extensively, averaging 50-80 gigs a year.

Rob's music has been heard on the TV show “Friday Night Lights” (NBC), as well as "Felicity" (WB) "The Black Donnellys" (NBC), "Everwood" (CW-ABC Family), "Dude I Just Want My Pants Back" (MTV), "General Hospital" (ABC), and "Jack and Bobby" (WB).

Falgiano's first book, God Laughs at Dirty Jokes, was released in the fall of 2014.

'Falgiano is more interested in making an album of value instead of writing one for the casual crowd.' - SoundtheSirens.com
