Double Lunch Presents:
Toronto’s punk-poet Rob Moir looks back at two consecutive years of life on the road with the release of his new album 'Adventure Handbook' (Underground Operations/eOne - Canada, Make My Day Records - EU released August 2015). In the vein of timeless artists (and muses) like Bruce Springsteen, The Replacements and Jeff Tweedy, Rob's songs are honest and exceedingly entertaining to see live. Rob continues to routinely finesses clever turns of phrase in his lyrics. The opening track 'New Years Eve' shows hope on the horizon, with 'Run For Your Life' & 'Ports Of Call' illuminating the excitement of doing what you love on an unknown course.
Formerly the front man for Toronto’s Dead Letter Department, Rob released his first solo EP in 2010 called 'This Is The Lie', then came the critically acclaimed LP 'Places To Die' in 2013 which Rolling Stone wrote in their 4/5 star printed album review, "Moir isn't conservative; there's something urgent in his songs, that are never too sure of themselves, and whose longing hasn’t found a home yet. Moir sings his romantic sighing songs with punk rock folk in his heart and in addition proves a great sense for quiet singer/songwriter moment”. .
Since then, he’s toured Europe with Neko Case and shared the stage with fellow alt-folk artists such as Frightened Rabbit, Frank Turner and The White Buffalo. With past solo performances at international festivals; NXNE, CMW, BIGSOUND and multiple successful tours in Australia, Canada, Europe, UK and USA, Rob has proven his ability to silence rowdy audiences with his intimate performances, quick humour, and captivating stage presence.
Perpetually on the lonesome road, Rob continues to expand his audience as he perform his songs across the world, making fans the old fashion way, one dedicated believer at a time.
