Rob Szabo

Hailed by the press as a “gifted musician” with “the soul of a poet” and “a voice of tremendous power and whimsy”, Toronto-based Rob Szabo is a tireless solitary touring troubadour, an acclaimed songwriter and in-demand record producer. His studio recordings get raved about by press, both in Canada and the U.S., where he’s been called “Cobain-worthy” and “like prime Costello”. Canada’s CBC Radio 1 & 2 champion his music on shows nationwide.

Rob Szabo`s self-titled fifth studio album is a dark and intimate recording prominently featuring his voice and acoustic guitar with dashes of horns, strings and ambient atmospherics.

Rob is currently performing about 100 shows per year, making records as a solo artist and producing other artists. His fans always mention Rob’s ever-present wry smile, and how he makes you feel like you’re in on a shared secret.

Rob plays honest intense music for music lovers.

Thanks for giving a shit.


“As a songwriter, Rob makes wry and sometimes pointed observations, with soulful confessionals often sung with a curious blend of hope and melancholy. It is a voice of clarity and of authority, and reminds the audience that there are core truths to be taken from everyday experiences of life and love.”
Jo Beattie Artistic Director, Coldnsap Festival (Prince George, BC)
