Rob Moir

Toronto’s Rob Moir continues to share his passionate and provocative stories with the release of his sophomore album Places To Die (Underground Operations/Canada, Make My Day Records/EU) in Spring 2013. In the vein of timeless artists (and muses) like Bruce Springsteen and Jeff Tweedy, Rob's songs are honest and exceedingly entertaining to see live. The opening/title track “Places To Die Before You See The World” ducks and weaves and unloads hefty lyrical punches. 

At home in heavy subject matter, Rob routinely finesses clever turns of phrase in his lyrics. As 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 who's 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”. Formerly the front man for Toronto’s Dead Letter Department., Rob released his first solo EP in 2010 called This Is The Lie. 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 fashioned way: one dedicated believer at a time.
