Edmonton-based singer/songwriter Rob Heath is first and foremost a storyteller. Nothing human is alien to Heath; hence he has a keen eye for observance of the human condition and an ardent ear for putting it all to music.
Heath’s songs speak of the lessons- good and bad- he has obviously learned during his life. Emotionally, he resides in a borderless world. His songs run the gamut from: whimsical, skeptical, explosive, introspective, hopeful, heart-rending, brooding, clever, and at times simply about true love and all of them brutally honest.
The concept of being concise does not escape him, and he presents astute assessments of life in a three to four-minute format. The delivery is succinct, and his approach is what makes Heath’s vocals noteworthy. His phrasing allows the lyric to shine.
There’s myriad subject matter and musical styles, yet there is a tie that binds. It’s that Heath’s music is relatable poetry, supported by listener-stickable melodies.
The quality of Heath’s songwriting has been widely recognized. Over the years accolades for his songs have been many: won first place in the Calgary Folk Music Festival “Songwriting Contest”, won the New Folk competition at the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival, and won a Canadian Radio Music Award for “Songwriter of the Year”, nominated for Canadian Folk Music Award’s “Songwriter of the Year”. Over 200 radio stations on six continents have played his music, and he’s been on songwriting panels for AMIA, WCMA and SAC. He has had publishing deals with Glen Campbell Music, Don Goodman Music and Criterion/Atlantic Music.
Tom is a storyteller. He will make you laugh, make you cry and make you think with his lyrics. His voice is similar to the style of Garth Brooks. His music is influenced by Garth and James Taylor. He is so excited to play on the same stage as Aaron and Sarah. He says “The best concert I’ve ever seen anywhere was at the Listening Room at Aaron Howard’s show, and now I’m performing with him. That will be a great time”. He talks with the audience and creates a fun, party-like environment. This is a rare opportunity to hear Tom play, because he rarely plays in public. His first show at The Listening Room was standing room only.
