Hello from the Rob camp, thawing out from Chicago’s long, snowy winter. Over the last few months, gears have been turning on Rob’s sophomore solo record and another music project still in the beginning phase. More on both of those as they progress.

In the meantime, he’s been busy at his ShushPaw Studio, recently wrapping up a session recording Chicago band Jump Suit, who is working on their new record. Damien Dempsey stopped by last year to record some vocals for an exclusive John Grant (Bella Union) EP called John Grant Gets Schooled. And on the studio calendar for later this month, former Chicago/now Ohio based musician Dylan Posa.

This August Rob will hit the road for a short stint of shows with Glen Hansard in the US, starting in Chicago at Lollapalooza, then Minneapolis, Oakland & Los Angeles for a gig at the Hollywood Bowl with Iron & Wine. Rob spent some time at Wilco’s studio, The Loft, with Glen and the band last year recording a bit for Glen’s follow up to 2012′s Rhythm And Repose, so expect a few new songs in the set! More information on those shows here or at glenhansardmusic.com. See you out there…
