“Rob Poole is a UK acoustic based musician who writes original material and performs it beautifully”

Review of “Fear Has No Dominion”
Blues Matters! Magazine
December 2018

 

I am based in the Chester area. My primary interests are blues, soul and jazz.

As a solo performer, I do original material. I also play electric guitar in various bands. The blues are a living, evolving music and I admire modern greats such as Alvin Youngblood Hart, Otis Taylor, Martin Harley and Tom Doughty. Influences range from Blind Willie Johnson and Son House, through Hank Williams, Hank Marvin and Hendrix, to Ry Cooder, Wilko Johnson (no relation to Willie) and Richard Thompson.

My first solo album, Fear Has No Dominion, was released in July 2018, and the quotation above is from an excellent review that gave me great pleasure. No one seems to buy CDs any more, but mine is available here.
