Rob Cass – Lead Singer/Guitar/Songwriter

“I have a real passion for country music with an edge as I was born in Cooma at the foot of the Snowy Mountains and my forefathers were cattlemen and brumby catchers, on a property called Moon Bar located in the Snowy Mountains.

My music influences are far and wide. My sisters sent a tingle down my spine at a very young age with their 5 part harmonies and the influence of an Irish background with a father who played 5 different instruments all by ear.

I have worked constantly on new material over the years and recorded two albums both with "Peter Dyball". Peter has worked live and in the studio with Kasey, Bill and Nash Chambers and toured with Kasey for the past 6 years and is now working with Julia and Angus Stone.

Track 3 "sheep and Cattle" was in a top 200 around the world competing against 3,800 artists and over 21,000 spins in the International Indie Charts Arena at number 173 of a top 200 chosen.

Today I have the utmost respect for Troy Cassar-Daley, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, John Fogarty and a stack of Female artists such as The McClymonts, Jetty Road, Dianna Corcoran, Shania Twain and many more. Rob Cass 23.1.2011

Rob's passion as a songwriter shines through on their CD's "DAIRYVILLE ROAD" and "DISTANT ROAD.
