Rob Snarski

A Great Romantic Singer - Live and Local at Burrinja

Join local resident and internationally renowned musician Rob Snarski of the Blackeyed Susans, as he sings from his first solo AlbumWounded Bird.

Rob Snarski has had a brilliant 10 months or so since the release of his debut solo album Wounded Bird. The record has been showered with accolades. Hailed as "one of the great romantic singers" by music journalist Jeff Jenkins who declared Wounded Bird "the perfect solo album" in a 4½ star review.

Think Ricky Nelson meets Mazzy Star or the Everly Brothers if they'd been raised on a diet of Big Star's Third.

Since the album's release, Rob has played to packed houses around the country. The album and their live performances have connected with fans and critics alike. Recently, music fans voted Wounded Bird the Australian Album of 2014 in the RRR Off The Record Listeners' end of year poll and his Melbourne album launch show - with an star band in July - was voted Best Australian Gig Of 2014.
