If you are at the fabulous Edmonton Folk Music Festival this year, check out Rob Heath. I guarantee that you are in for a treat.


His wonderfully literate songs paint pictures in your head with his thought-provoking lyrics. His song, “I Believe”, from Couple of Times Round the Sun, was delivered worldwide through RadioDirectx and in the first month received 149 requests for the full CD, based just on the strength of this one song.

Rob’s written for Glen Campbell Music, Criterion/Atlantic Music and Don Goodman Music in the USA. In 2002, he received a Canadian Radio Music Award for his songwriting. The following year, Rob was a “New Folk” winner at highly regarded Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, joining the ranks of past emerging artists and alumni such as Lyle Lovett, Lucinda Williams, Shawn Colvin, Steve Earle, Tom Russell, and Nancy Griffith.

Rob will be performing at the Edmonton Folk Music Festival (his schedule is below). Rob is putting the finishing touches on his new CD, which is slated for release early next year.
