“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
I am based in the Chester area. My primary interest as a musician is the many manifestations of the blues.
As a solo artist, I play acoustic guitar and perform original material. I also play electric guitar in 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 solo album, Fear Has No Dominion, was released in July 2018, and the quotation above is from a review that gave me great pleasure.
