ROB MANCINI BIOGRAPHY
Singer / guitarist Rob Mancini first made his mark on the European Hard Rock scene with the German bands Hotwire and Crush. Moving to Ireland in the early part of the 21st Century he turned his interests to production while still keeping his live chops up – and his face in front of people - playing an average of 70 shows a year.
The end of 2011 saw Mancini release the critically acclaimed and well received ‘Rock N Roll Circus,’ drawing accolades from sources such as May The Rock Be With You (“If you’re up for an album full of rock then buy a ticket to this circus”), Paradise Rock (“Verdict 9/10, go buy this album”), Metal Shock (“AOR Anthology – a masterpiece”) and Hardrock Haven (“Clearly deserves the backing of a leading label”), amongst others. 2012 brought the charity single, “United We Stand“, featuring singer / songwriter John Pratt, best known in melodic hard rock circles as the front man for AOR Super group Firefly in the late 90′s.
In 2013 Rob Mancini has revamped his lineup including guitar virtuoso Claudio Pietronik and broadened his horizons, adding more modern elements to his brand and breaking out of the melodic rock stereotype. Darker, heavier, but still melodic in a sense. Armed with songs like the controversial “Bullet To Spare”, “Lies” and “Don’t Stand in My Way” or showing of the bands’ technical brilliance with songs like “The Story ain’t Over,” Mancini is prepared to take listeners to places they’ve never been to before.
