While his recently released album, So Much To Say, is steadily building buzz and gaining accolades from fans and critics alike, singer, writer, and producer Rob Murat felt this the perfect opportunity to speak directly with fans and give some love back for all their continued support. To do just that, Rob recently took a stroll through his home streets of New York City to let fans get to better know the man behind the music. Touching topics ranging from live shows, fan support, what it takes to be successful, Michael Jackson and more, it quickly becomes clear that in the current climate of independent, DIY musicianship, Rob Murat is a strong, informed voice, and one that needs to be heard. Speaking on the importance of the live show, Rob says, “Why should people pay to see you perform when there’s hundreds of other artists out there, just in this city alone?” Being an Ivy League graduate, Rob also understands that musical talent and show bravado is only one aspect of what it takes to be successful. “At the end of the day it’s drive,” Rob states. “You gotta want it, you gotta have that hunger.” With his undeniable talent and a go-getter attitude, there is no doubt it’s only a matter of time before Rob Murat is a household name. Rob Murat’s So Much To Say is available now via Quench Entertainment.
