CD Review: Rob Drabkin Standing On "Heavy Feet"

Singer/songwriter Rob Drabkin is a stand-out in the musical community for two reasons, one is his Sideshow Bob hairstyle. The other reason is his ability to mesh his storytelling lyrics with catchy rhythms.

Rob's latest release "On These Heavy Feet" shows us a maturity to his song-writing. The use of strings to introduce us to his acoustic guitar is a nice transition as Rob performs his best Dave Matthews impression on "Rise At Sea." Rob expands his gentle sound with the up-tempo shuffle of "Girl From Country Floors" and the keyboard-heavy "Little Steps." Rob lyrics and music flow together perfectly in "She Comes and Goes" and "Stay Here With You."

Rob Drabkin is headlining a show on November 19 in his home state of Colorado at the Road 34. Also, visit Rob's website (robdrabkin.com) for an acoustic version of the Allman Brothers Band classic "Melissa" performed with Davy Knowles.
