GETTING TO KNOW ROB MANSEAU
by Jacqueline Jax host of A.V.A Live Radio
Since I was a kid Country music has always been in my blood.
I remember watching hee haw wishing every week that one day I would be a performer on the show. But unfortunately the ups and downs of life sure made it impossible for me to pursue my dream at a younger age.My mother battled 6 different types of cancer in 14 years, which made it impossible for me to leave her side. She has passed now , and It made me realize that life is very precious, and It only comes around once, you gotta do what you love.
After 30 years of dreaming about making this happen,
I decided to take the plunge and drive down to Nashville to make a CD. After driving for 18 hours straight to Nashville, when I got to the city limits I chickened out (afraid of rejections), I turned around and drove all the way back home. Disappointed all the way back I was determined to make this happen .
When I returned home I went online and booked a flight back to Nashville and do this.
I recorded a cover album at Omni Sound Studios in Nashville, I couldn’t get over the work they had done with my CD. After returning home , I received such good feedback that I needed to pursue this a little further. Being a vocalist only, I do have a few songs of my own (unfinished). I started looking online and getting more in the music circle . And that is when I met Douglas Crowell. Mr Crowell wrote Anytown USA , when I first heard it It brought back every memory I had from my trips down to Nashville It was the perfect song for my first single. I am very thankful to Mr Crowell for allowing me to sing his song. Couldn’t of come to me at a better time. So I drove back to Nashville and recorded Anytown, USA at Red Ridge Entertainment, where I met and worked with amazing musicians.
Since then I have been nominated at the Texas Sound International Music Awards,
and been invited by a casting producer to audition for the television show X-factor. Both this fall My new single ” Anytown USA”
I live in a very small town,
Where the music circle is actually quite big . There are many great local talent in Northern Ontario.
Also a great place for fishing and ATV riding, lots of good trails to go play in the mud 😉
Well, to be honest it’s all new to me.
A little overwhelming, so much to learn. Lucky for me I recently signed with management agency from Ariella Records here in Canada who have helped me out a lot in the past few months.
I haven’t had to many yet, It’s been a pretty smooth ride
At the moment I only have the one single, I am working with writers ( publisher form Nashville ) almost have every song for my first album, I plan on making as many as I can 🙂
Social Media has been more then supportive of my singing.
So many fans in so little time. I love the fact that I can post a song online and it’s viewed all over the world. And without fans there is no Artist .
The first on the list would have to be Travis Tritt.
He is someone who made me realize just what type of artist I wanted to become. I remember his first album in 1990 ” Country Club ” and always wanted to be a part of that club. I was going through a very rough time in my life during the 90’s and his music is what got me going. Like any artist you fall in love with your own music, and Travis Tritt’s style of country is what I wanna sing.
My favorite quote…
Country music is three cords and the truth.
