Rob Larkin is a schooled and road-seasoned guitarist, award-winning songwriter, singer, and collaborator. The lead singer and guitarist for the Portland, Oregon-based band The Wayward Ones, Rob is making tracks touring the United States as a solo artist as well as with the band. As a session guitarist, he has worked with greats such as Brian MacLeod (Sheryl Crow) and Rami Jaffee (The Wallflowers, Foo Fighters), and is known for using his soulful songwriting sensitivity to tastefully add the guitar parts that suit the song.
Following his success as lead guitarist and vocalist for east coast and west coast-based bands, Rob Larkin recruited some of the best musicians in LA to help record his highly acclaimed album, Dogwood Roots. The result is a rich musical stew, with ingredients from righteous organ to down-home harmonica, and everything in between. As a testament to its timelessness, the title track "Dogwood" won the Americana category of the 2011 Show Me the Music Songwriting contest. Due to the album's success, Spectra Music Group signed the band and released Dogwood Roots worldwide in December 2013. Look for much more to come, with Rob Larkin and The Wayward Ones' upcoming album Lights Are Burning.
