About Rob

Rob Gillette

One Eye on the Past, One Eye on the Present, One Eye on the Future

At 13, Rob began playing guitar in bands performing the music of the original psychedelic and hard rock movements. At college, Rob broadened his palette playing jazz and folk as both a guitarist and bassist. After college, Rob returned to his rock roots founding a series of bands in the rich DC art punk scene, including 86% Hype, The Prawns and The Man Upstairs. During this time, he also opened his studio: Private Hell Recording which remains in operation today. 

After his move to California, Rob launched the Fabulous Jammies, playing venues ranging from the Sonoma Film Festival to various biker bars in the San Francisco Bay area.

Now based in the Boston area, Rob released his first solo album “Topic Ends” in 2016 on Soul Stew Records. The two singles from the album, “Don’t Push Me” and “What I Know Now”, both charted.
Rob is currently hard at work producing the follow up to “Topic Ends” which is slated for release in 2021.
