Band of the Day

Rob Cantor

A witty, whimsical, and wonderfully eclectic solo debut from an American singer-songwriter
Even when you're breaking my heart, even when you love a la carte, you're perfect in the way that you are.
lyrics from Perfect

Rob Cantor is an American singer and songwriter. He was born in Detroit and resides in Los Angeles. While attending the University of Michigan, Rob formed a band called Tally Hall. They were signed by Atlantic Records and released two albums, as well as a ten-episode internet show. Their songs were featured on numerous television programs and commercials, and they twice performed on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Since 2011, the band has been in a deep and restful state of hibernation.

Despite Tally Hall’s inactivity, though, Rob continues to issue forth musical whimsy. In 2012, Rob’s song “Shia LeBeouf" went viral. It portrayed the well-known leading man as a bloodthirsty cannibal, and it spawned a ridiculous internet meme. On April 14, 2014, Rob Cantor released a brand-new album, his first full-length solo endeavor, entitled Not A Trampoline. It’s currently available for Download. The album features twelve songs, collaborations with fellow Tallies, and a fried chicken leg. In addition to writing and recording music, finding a compelling visual accompaniment is very important to Rob. Tally Hall’s cannon of work includes a great deal of carefully crafted videos, and Rob’s solo stuff carries on this tradition. At the time of writing, two songs from the album, All I Need Is You and Old Bike, have been released as musical videos, with more to come over the summer of 2014.
