 Notes & Reviews
 
If you've heard Rob Zuzin cover a tune over the years at a live performance, you are as likely to hear Taj Mahal and Stevie Ray as you are Dwight Yoakam and Fats Waller from a playlist that spans over 80 years. His original compositions reflect this diversity: country picking mixed with classical arpeggios mixed with blues and swing. All topped off with rock and roll. 'I've been writing music all my life. Somewhere in my house, I might still have a couple pages titled 'Symphony #1' that I started when I was seven.' Rob's catalog of pop, rock, and blues compositions is now in the hundreds. Only a few dozen have been released, but all were written for the joy of writing and to share with others. 'Most of my early music was released locally or just circulated on cassette among friends. Those that were published early on are out of print now.' Many of those songs were demos and a couple albums for rock groups. 'We were heavily influenced by the radio growing up. MTV was just starting and there wasn't an internet. A lot of the time, a new song on the radio would serve as inspiration when writing music.' Rob's upcoming release is a tribute to one of those groups on the radio he heard growing up. On Steel Strings is an interpretation of some of the ABBA's most loved music performed in the most organic setting: unaccompanied steel string guitar.
