ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rob Slater wrote his first song lyrics in grade school, his first songs at 14. One of which, Tonight (I Don't Need You), you can sample here. Since then he's written about 70 more and forgotten the music (Thankfully in most cases) to at least half of them.

Rob is a musician/teacher/writer living in Bellingham, Washington. His stories and poetry have appeared in Story House, Continuum, SBD, Millennium, Jackhammer, Goblin Muse, and Martian Wave. He has a should've-been-a doctorate B.A. in Theatre/Education, Spanish and History minors and a M.A. in Educational Technology. He plays guitar, writes songs, sings, brews beer and mead, cooks, reads, and practices Taekwon Do. He has six children, 6 to 25 years. He has adopted Robert A. Heinlein's "Specialization is for Insects" as his motto.

"Some of the Parts" is 4 full-pro 16-track recordings and 7 "basement tape" 4-track recordings. These are about a third of Rob's recordings over the last decade. Proceeds from this CD will send Rob back into the studio to produce a full CD of all-pro recordings.

Rob Slater - Vocals, Guitar, all tracks

heartfelt lyrics, genuine music
Rob Slater's music is filled with emotion that comes right from the heart. When you listen to his songs you get the feeling that the lyrics are not just words, but that they connect to his inner feelings and emotions. The music is genuine and his talent as a musician is superb. Rob, along with the other vocals and musicians, have a hit here!
