Rob Freeman has spent a lifetime making music. A self-taught pianist, he entertained with an accordion as a young boy and was writing songs prolifically by his early teens. In the ‘60s and ‘70s, Rob was keyboardist/writer with several bands. Over the years his original songs have been featured in movie and television soundtracks and covered by a variety of artists. Today his studio walls are lined with gold and platinum record awards which he earned during successful years as a record producer/recording engineer working with such artists as KISS, Ramones, Blondie, and The Go-Go’s. Recognized for his work with others’ music, Rob is not widely known as an artist himself. Hopefully that’s about to change.
ME, MY SELFIE, & EYE is a collection of original songs written over a period of three and a half decades, 1979-2015. Do the songs on the album contain carefully interwoven themes, or were they randomly conceived and simply placed together? I suppose that’s for you to decide. For myself, when I listen through the album, I am transported to many wondrous and unsettling corners of my life experience, as seen and heard through my eyes and ears…my selfie.

What more can be said about a song that says so much—yet so little—about the state of our world? Though written long ago, it still seems somehow relevant. “You may have wanted a bedtime story, but…”
Lifetimes, like seasons, are cyclical, but, unlike seasons, they are often unpredictable. Here I take a good hard look at something you can never quite see. It’s just another Hazy May.
A young, hard-working singer tours endlessly, back and forth from one end of mighty Canada to the other, in a cold, mile-weary van. He dreams of home, where he used to watch the Northern Lights do their sky dance.
We’ve all been to the dark place, blinded by our own perceptions (or lack of them). I don’t wish it on anyone. Will all hope be dashed out at sea…or can love truly open our eyes and save the day? Only time will tell.
