Biography

Rob Riccardo is a Phoenix-based singer/songwriter who plays original acoustic roots music and is most passionate about the messages within his songs. Born and raised on the shores of Long Island, New York, the foundation of his songwriting career derives from the surf scene of his formative years on the east coast where he discovered the music of conscious artists like Jack Johnson, John Butler, Xavier Rudd and Ben Harper.

Before relocating to the Arizona desert, Rob's wife introduced him to yoga, which would become somewhat of a supplement for the soulful reflections he used to experience on his surfboard in the Atlantic beach breaks of his youth. Now drawing inspiration from his yoga and meditation practice, the artists that he grew up on, and his deep connection to the environment, Rob has developed his own unique blend of folk, rock and reggae music infused with a heavy serving of conscious lyrics. It's his mission to use his musical platform to spread positive messages and bring to light soulfully and socially mindful themes.

Rob released his debut full-length album The Calm Within on June 19, 2017, receiving an amazing response from listeners around his home base of Phoenix and beyond. Spotify selected two songs from the album, "Let It Breathe" and "Adventure of Me," for its Discover Weekly playlists, resulting in thousands of new fans across nearly 60 countries.

Rob’s second full-length album, Seeker, released on September 14, 2018. Intended to be a soundtrack for the soul’s journey, the album features themes and a vibe akin to “Adventure of Me.” Album number three is already in the making — a self-produced, home-recorded project due out in Summer 2019. Rob’s music is available worldwide on all streaming and download platforms.
