ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A touring comedian, writer, and life-long musician (not to mention the man behind the viral "Pachelbel Rant"), Rob Paravonian is a unique artist who drapes intelligent and clever lyrics over well-crafted pop melodies. A/B is Rob’s sixth studio album and by far his most highly-developed musically.

From a firm power pop base, honed during his years playing in his 90s-era Chicago-based band The Steppingstones, Rob delivers pop gems with laugh-out-loud lyrics while flexing his composition and arranging muscles by venturing into other genres including piano ballads, jazz, and country. The 14 tracks on A/B were written over the three years since the 2013 release of Keep Your Jazz Hand Strong and the new album reflects a relaxed, patient approach to the music and the confidence of knowing it would only be released when ready.

It’s ready.

From the bursts of catchy pop in songs like 9 Dollar Cupcake and Courtside Fan, to the piano/vocal-only Flashback Wife, to the big band jazz of Andy the Amazon Android, to the instrumental(!) Bossa Nova of Pesticida, Rob displays musical craftsmanship and arranging acumen light years beyond what people expect when they hear the term "guitar comedian." Rob's previous work has been heard on radio shows like Dr. Demento, on satellite radio, and in the videos on his YouTube channel, which has over 26,000 subscribers and over 20 million views. A/B is sure to build on his past and extend his reputation as being among the best comedy songwriters of the day.
