Rob Longstaff is a New Zealand born, Australian bred, Berlin based Pop/Soul/Blues musician, globetrotter and adventurer.
After working Australia’s tough but rewarding pub circuit, Rob packed his bags for Berlin, a city which he now calls home. In between his musical accomplishments Rob likes a challenge, having now hitchhiked across three continents, toured Indian and African orphanages and hospitals, ventured to Antarctica and travelled overland from Berlin to Australia by bicycle, train and ship.
Convinced by the idea of slow travelling the singer/songwriter did the German release tour for his album „Boogaloo“ on a solar boat and took a trip through the US on a custom electric trike. He also has been experimenting with the tiny house and the zero waste food movements.
Powerful vocals with humorous lyrics, passionate guitar playing and charm make him a one-man-groove-machine that runs with or without amplification.
Rob’s yet to be named second studio album with Blackbird Music is slated for release this year and typically features an ambitious mix of fun styles but with a little something for everyone.
