Rob n' Walker Band

Rob Robertson is a truly remarkable singer, song-writer, and guitarist who communicates with the world through his music.  He started playing guitar at a very young age, honing and polishing awe-inspiring guitar skills. Rob followed his dreams and his passion to Nashville, Tennessee where he has played alongside some of country musics’ greatest talents.  After many years on the road, playing in various haunts and honky tonks, Rob listened to his heart and turned his sights for home.  Home is the stunningly beautiful Similkameen Valley in British Columbia's, South Okanagan.  It has a rich community of incredibly talented musicians, painters, artisans and writers and Rob has played with many of the musicians living in and around the area.

Back home with a pocket full of songs, Rob’s journey lead him to Rob n’ Walker.  

Fritz Cronjaeger is a high energy, crazy talented, bass guitar player who builds and repairs guitars in the Vancouver area.  He travels home to the Similkameen Valley weekly to join Rob and Cliffe Fraser on stage. Fritz is a multi-talented musician with a profound interest and extensive background in sound engineering.  

Cliffe Fraser has been playing drums for over four decades pausing briefly to pursue a career as a Chef.  Cliffe has enjoyed cooking here in Canada and abroad for numerous dignitaries including Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. 

In the mid-1990s...Cliffe picked up the sticks again and started playing with various local classic rock bands in the South Okanagan including the Blackbirds and Nameless in Naramata.

Rob n’ Walker is a stunning collaboration by three amazing musicians who have given flight to Rob’s lyrics and music. Each song a different energy, a different essence, and a different message that touches the heart.
