Rob Bailey is a Manhattan based guitarist/vocalist/songwriter and producer.
RB broke into the New York studio scene in the late 90's providing guitar work on the gold single "Candy" by Mandy Moore, Anastacia's first two multi-platinum albums, and the hit Jive Jones track "Me, Myself and I" (which graced TRL, the 4X platinum NOW8, and several film soundtracks). Another highlight in this period was playing live with a then-unsigned Gavin Degraw and playing on the demos of several of his best known songs. 2002 saw the release of "I Belong", a single co-written with Jive Jones, which hit the Top 20 in Holland.
Session and production work soon expanded into advertising and TV, with work for Calvin Klein, Armani, Fox Kids Saturday Morning (Yu-gi-Oh), and several Super Bowl spots being noteworthy highlights. To date RB has played on or produced hundreds of TV and radio commercials, and has played on several movie soundtracks of note, including "An Invisible Sign" starring Jessica Alba, and "Meet Monica Velour" starring Kim Cattrall. RB has also produced several artists including David Clement, Tony Kaye, Jessie Gallante and Kate Conlon.
In demand on the live front as well, RB played on Broadway in Billy Joel's "Movin' Out" from 2003-5. Aussie mega-star Delta Goodrem enlisted RB for all her major U.S. TV appearances and live dates, including "The Today Show" (2005), "The View", and "The Late Show with David Letterman" (2008). A super short (but very sweet) stint playing and singing b.v.'s with the one and only Aerosmith, during rehearsals for their 2009 tour, was an amazing career high point. And RB jumped on board for the fall 2011 leg of Enrique Iglesias' sold out "Euphoria" U.S. arena tour.
2012-2013 saw continued success in the studio, adding John Varvatos and Harry Winston as clients, and live work with Russ Irwin (Aerosmith), Tony Vincent (the Voice, American Idiot) and the legendary David Johansen of the New York Dolls.
