Show Notes

Hey Folks,

It was a such a pleasure to catch up with my buddy Rob and it's safe to say that we did imbibe during this conversation. This Podcast is 2 hours in length but we did continue to hang out for another 3 hours. So great to catch up with Rob and his wife Cherie.

On this episode we reminisce about our time touring with The Frames and Rob talks about working at Steve Albini's Electrical Audio studios.
Rob discusses his solo work as well as some of the notable artists that he's worked with such as Glen Hansard, Marketa Irglova and the Smashing Pumpkins.

Here's a little more info on Rob....

Rob Bochnik is a musician, audio recording engineer, singer and songwriter. He honed his recording skills while working with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio, as an audio engineer. In addition, Rob played an important role in constructing the studios and overseeing their maintenance. It was his audio engineering work on For the Birds (which was recording at Electrical Audio)  that brought him to the attention of The Frames.

He began playing guitar and touring with The Frames in 2002 and was asked to join the band the following year. He played on Set List, Burn The Maps and The Cost, as well as on all their subsequent tours. Additionally, he has toured and recorded as the guitarist and backing vocalist with The Swell Season and with Glen on his solo records.

Rob also records as a solo artist, having released his own records Blowing Out the Cobwebs in 2007 and Lovevolve in 2017.  For more info check out https://robbochnik.com
