Biography

Singer songwriter extraordinaire Rob Clarkson returns after a 10 year absence from his solo career with a brand new album titled ‘Zone One’. An example of his best solo work yet, ‘Zone One’ features 11 new songs full of wit and charm that highlighting Rob’s unique perspective on life. In 1996, Rob postponed his solo career and left behind a vast following that had gathered from releases such as the hit song ‘Beautiful Girls and Beautiful Boys’ and a succession of other popular albums. In the intervening years Rob has been playing with Ruck Rover. In 2003, Candle Records had huge success with the release of a retrospective double CD of Rob’s earlier releases titled ‘Shirts and Skins’ and became the pre-cursor for Rob Clarkson to embark on the eagerly-awaited second phase of his solo career again.

‘Zone One’ captures all of Rob’s trademarks – his lyrical smarts, great turn of phrase and gentle dig of middle Australia – this time wrapped around interesting arrangements and musical accompaniment. Highlights on the album come in many forms, the infectious ‘Days and Nights’, the vulnerable ‘Bridges and Ties’ and the amazing ‘Photo and Audio.’

Combining biting social commentary with humour, ‘Zone One’ is a great return to the musical landscape for Rob. The album also marks the return of Rob performing solo, which has always been wonderful treat.

ROB ON ‘ZONE ONE’:
“The blueprint for the sound and style of “Zone One” came from the recording of two of my songs on Ruck Rover’s most recent album “No Hints, No Clues, No Lies”.
