Rob Compa Quartet
After a decade of touring all over the country with Dopapod, guitarist/vocalist Rob Compa has finally taken the plunge and put his own project together. Don’t let the singular name moniker fool you, though. Make no mistake: this trio is very much a collaboration. By enlisting the talents of bassist Pat Markley, keyboardist Mike Fried and drummer Dan Ryan, these four musicians have all thrown their distinct creative input into the collective pot, creating a polyglot sound of lyrical songwriting, well crafted instrumentals, and raw improvisation. Rob is poised to release his debut solo album “Same Damn Thing” in 2019, which features Pat Markley on bass, his Dopapod brother Eli Winderman on keys, and drummers Michelangelo Carubba (Turkuaz) and Russ Lawton (Trey Anastasio Band/Soule Monde).
