Stunning..." "absolutely mesmerizing..." "a charming testament to what makes music so wonderful..." are just a few of the phrases Rob Agocs recently made up to try to promote himself.
This Atlanta musician tries to draw inspiration from his own experiences and imbue feelings of self-worth and hometown pride into his songs, and by association, his listeners. Born and raised in the peaceful suburbs of Atlanta, Rob spent his childhood and adolescence in a world where math and science were at the forefront, and music took a very loud back seat. After getting a mechanical engineering degree from Georgia Tech, he decided it was time to turn that around and let music do the driving.
His 2015 self-released debut album, "Proof of Concept," was the first step in a long, ongoing journey of maturation and self-discovery. What started as a struggle between "honest feelings" and "what songs are supposed to sound like" became an album wrapped up in honesty and tied together with a jangly Rickenbacker twang.
It seems to be extremely difficult to be completely honest in songwriting, and in many (if not most) cases, honestly is overshadowed by cheap hooks, riffs, and glitzy production, and music is treated like a product to be manufactured and sold. Real magic happens when the glitz and glamor of a song stem directly from its honesty. At that point, the hooks seem to write themselves.
Rob believes this is at least some of the secret behind what makes the music of some of his inspirations, like Tom Petty, Ryan Adams and Butch Walker, seem like they've always existed - it just took a prophet or two to put pen to paper and microphone to amplifier. That honesty is what he tries to convey in his music, particularly in his upcoming sophomore album, which is currently in production.
