Bio

Rob McHale is a North Carolina-based Folk-Americana artist whose songs
can take you through a small town, down a dirt road or on an historical
journey – and bring you back home again.
He’s been described as “a socially conscious writer with intelligent lyrics”
(Randy Walker, WSGE-FM, Dallas, NC), while Christopher Anderson,
writing about McHale’s 2010 debut release, Company Town,
for Seattle, WA-based Victory Music , declared:
“I hear shades of [Neil] Young, JJ Cale and many of the best writers of
our generation.”
Fields, McHale’s sophomore release, has a more produced yet personal
feel to it. Laden with social commentary with historical overtones,
Fields is about things we have lost and
things we have found, a brush with
history, home and family. The CD
takes you through the Civil War
without choosing sides. It let’s you
reflect on the past through an honest
and open window. Michael Donahue,
Author, Historian, Ranger, Little Big
Horn National Monument and
Battlefield, Crow Agency,
Montana comments “ This
[Surrounded Again] is the best song
I have heard about Custer, and I have
heard them all” , while Stephen Rapid
at Lonesome Highway Magazine,
Dublin, Ireland says “Real and mature,
reflective and sincere, this is music for
the spirit and a really excellent release.”
( Fields )
Also included among its ten tracks are a brief foray into Irish history
and reflective songs that focus on chances, family and the environment
with good wishes to close out the disc.
In addition to performing in the Carolinas and regionally throughout U.S.,
McHale hosts the Summit Coffee Songwriters Showcase in Davidson, N.C that
features local, regional, and touring artists. The popular monthly series is
in it’s 5th year.
