Welcome to the music of Robb McCormick.
Why this name?
I didn't choose my name, my Mom did.
Do you play live?
I live in Columbus, Ohio.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It is easier to get your music heard.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Yes. I am still waiting for that studio gig so I can write, record and play music for the rest of my life.
Taking his first piano lesson at the age of 4, Robb McCormick has been playing piano for over 24 years. Even though his main passion is Jazz, Blues and Gospel, Robb grew up studying mainly Classics, Broadway and Pop music. He had a clear talent for improvisation even at a very young age, recording his first solo piano studio compositions at the age of 12. His first performance was the 1st grade talent show where he played "The Rose" on piano. Since then he has played everything from Weddings and local clubs to national venues opening for artists such as B.B.King, Chicago, Sade, Jerry Garcia Band (reunion), John Cougar Melloncamp and others. He began teaching piano to neigborhood children at the age of 13 and since 1996 has worked full time teaching over 45 students in his Pickerington studio. Robb has performed and recorded with several bands over the last decade including The Shantee (folk/rock), Secret Soul (funk/soul), Allton & Friends (roots rock), Backstairs Quartet (jazz), Shady Grove (bluegrass), Teeny Tucker & Drivin' Wheel (blues), Sean Carney (blues), Raymond Powell (jazz/blues), Lemuria (rock), Uncle Sams Dream Machine (roots rock), Stonebyrd (jamband), Gene Walker (jazz/blues) and many more.
Ray Charles, The Beatles, ELP, Joe Sample, Steve Kimock, Chuck Leavell, Herbie Hancock, Traffic, Steve Winwood, John Burr, Chick Corea, Wes Montgomery, Santana, Phish, Bruce Hornsby, Brent Midland, John Medeski, Greyboy Allstars, the list goes on and on and on...
New Orleans rocks!
I have too much to list, Hammond c2, modified leslie 122 , wurly 200a, fender rhodes, baby grand piano and much more. I also use a Nord Electro 2 and Spectrasonics products, which I would endorse without question.
I play all the parts in my recordings, with the exception of a few friends who sit in every now and again. If you'd like to commission a song for your project please contact me at email@example.com.
