Rob Swanson Rob Swanson

Playing Bass for over 25 years, Rob has made a name for himself as one of the most versitile working bassists in the Philly metro area. Tripling on Electric, Upright, and Vocals, Rob finds himself in over 20 different musical configurations on any given month ranging from straight ahead bebop , groove, world, and straight funk and rock. A graduate of the prestigious West Chester School of Music, Rob balances gigging with a bit of teaching to forward the muse that was passed onto him at an early age. Rob's latest release, The Terra Soul Project, is a compilation of original works with world and improvisation being the cornerstones of this journey. It is brought to life by world class musicians that have played with Ray Charles, John Legend, Kieko Matsui, Othello Molineaux, Ernie Watts and countless others - this is a CD not to be missed for those fans of world inspired jazz.
