Chris Rob

Born and raised on Chicago's south-side, Chris Rob was first introduced to music at age 4 by his mother, a renowned classical pianist. Today a respected singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist, he's created an international following due to his musical genius, and captivating live performances.

In just a few years after relocating to New York, Chris Rob worked his way to musical director, keyboardist and back-up vocalist for the best in popular music. He recently served these roles for R & B vocalist John Legend on his Grammy-Award winning “Get Lifted Tour”, and can be seen highlighted throughout the “John Legend: Live at The House of Blues” DVD released last year. Chris Rob has also worked closely in the studio with hip-hop heavyweights Lauryn Hill and Kanye West, as well as producers Swiss Beatz, DJ Spinna, Devo Springsteen, Emile, and soul vocalist Leon Ware, the legendary co-writer for Marvin Gaye.
