Rob Hollis is a western Canadian singer songwriter and guitarist. Born in Edmonton, Alberta and raised in Alberta and on Vancouver Island. Western Canada is a melting pot of musical styles and genres…..Rob’s music is a product of this environment. Trad Country….bluesy…..swingy…..folk….original.

In 1994, Canadian country airwaves bounced to “Rockabilly Heart”, the debut by Canadian iconic songstress Cindy Church….and by songwriter Rob Hollis. Cindy went on to cover another Hollis original, “Wheel of Love” on her third solo release and the song was also included in live performances by the wonderful trio “Rankin, Church & Crowe”.

In September 2003 radio audiences in Canada and the U.S. were introduced to a new recording “Highway of Love” the debut release by independent artist Rob Hollis. The CD garnered airplay on many Folk/Roots radio shows across Canada and down in the U.S. The album was also reviewed and received positive feedback from press and media.

“Solid songwriting…..unique…..intriguing…..impressive”
Country Music News, Ottawa

“The relaxed pace and attention to detailed craftsman show up in the final product. Hollis has a smooth, comfortably lived-in voice that delivers his classic sounding lyrics”
