SKYLANDS Magazine - June 16, 2007

"Smoky voice, sultry sax and a jazz-sparked blend of bluesy folk-rock stories of truth define the music of singer-songwriter Rob Cannillo. His songs of love gone bad, paradise lost and sometimes gained are written from the heart and, one suspects, personal experience."

"What Life Can Be: The Rob Cannillo and Friends Band" - April 16, 2007

Every so often I'll hear a singer/songwriter for the first time and immediately purchase the CD. That's just how it was when I heard Rob Cannillo performing at a trendy little place called The Grind.
A hush spread throughout the place as Rob and Friends began to play, proving once again that exceptional music produced by fine musicians can be found in the most unlikely places.
Ignoring the well meaning advice of fellow musicians, friends and family to "play songs that people know", Rob plays his gritty sounding original songs anywhere he can.
It his his original songs that touch the lives of so many who thank him for his crusade in the fight against cancer.
