Robin joined AEG in the fall of 2006 while attending Berklee College of Music in Boston. While there he was awarded the Bass Department Achievement Award. Upon graduation in 2008, he hit the road with AEG full time. He has recorded 3 albums with the group (View from the Root, Ragtop Angel, and Daniel the Brave). Robin left to pursue other endeavors in NYC in the fall of 2012.

Below is a message from Rob that he wanted to share with you:

When this journey started for me I was in my third year at Berklee College of Music and found out about the band from a posting on the internet. I had no idea what was in store. Over the next six years I have traveled around the country to dozens of states. Played hundreds and hundreds of shows. Signed autographs. Been on TV and radio. Played at festivals, in clubs, bars, boats, barns, and even from inside a moving van. I have learned so much. About music and myself. I made friendships that will last a lifetime and had experiences that I will never forget. All of this was possible because of you, the fans, and I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for the big and little things. Thank you for coming to shows hours away from home. Thank you for dropping that money in the I Love You Box when you didn’t have to. Thank you burning our music for, and pestering, your friends. Thank you for coming up after a show and saying good job. It all means so much.

One of the things that I have recently learned on the journey is that being a touring musician may not be what ultimately makes me happy. As many of you know, I recently moved to New York City and I hope to continue in music, playing locally. I’ll try waking up every morning in the same bed. Even in the pursuit of this new adventure you all helped me. You have helped give me the confidence I need to move forward into this next stage of my music career. So thank you.

I know this won’t be goodbye forever. I’ll see you in the crowd at AEG shows in the future. So for now I’ll just say thanks and see you soon.
