Sharing the biggest stages with some of the greatest R&B legends, jazz lions and hip-hop heavyweights in the game, Chris Rob has established his presence on all fronts as a pianist, singer, songwriter and producer. Just as a true point guard is a rare commodity in the NBA, Rob’s musicianship and ability to get the most out of his fellow musicians has given him the reputation as an MVP alongside music’s very greatest.
His most noteworthy accomplishments to date include his recent tour through Russia as part of The New Stars of America: Body & Soul Tour, being a featured artist at 2012's Montreal Jazz Festival, producing for and touring with Grammy Award winning artist Roberta Flack, opening for and performing with Stevie Wonder at President Obama's Pre-Inaugural Ball, as well as contributing to Kanye West’s Grammy award-winning album Graduation. He also served as music director for John Legend’s Get Lifted Tour. One of Chris Rob's singles, “Sex. Money. & Drugs”, from his last album Mental Notes was featured in Tyler Perry’s film "Peeples", while recent club banger, "Found Myself" with co-producer DJ Ian Friday, hit number one on Traksource.com dance floor charts. When Rob is not on stage or in the studio, he’s working behind the scenes as a writer and stage director for his brother, comedian/actor/musician Craig Robinson (“The Office”), as well as performing with R & B legends from Anita Baker to Gordon Chambers, or hip hop artists from Talib Kweli and Black Moon. He also has scored for several independent movies, including "Phunny Business" (recently featured on Showtime-Roger Ebert's Top 20 Documentaries of 2011), "For Colored Boys" and "Bittersweets."
