Tumbleweed Rob

Tumbleweed Rob Wolfskill is a veteran performer who is best known as the Leader of one of the top acts in the
Western Music genre called The Tumbling Tumbleweeds. 
Rob founded, produced and directed the group since its inception in 2005 leading the group to win several awards including the Academy of Western Artists Western Music Group of the Year, the Western Music Association Crescendo Award for Most Promising Talent and the Western Music Association Best Traditional Album by a Group Award. 

Born in Los Angeles, CA and a descendent of the Chiricahua Red Paint Apache people Rob has very strong ties to his heritage and with his family being from
New Mexico and Arizona he has a strong affection for the Southwest.  Rob grew up listening to everything from Sons of the Pioneers to Elton John and everything in between.  His own songwriting style is both very personal and also very heavily influenced by the Acoustic Roots Music he has been drawn to throughout his lifetime.

Rob says, “Acoustic Music has a way of really touching your soul.  I think the organics of acoustic instruments and the natural materials they are made of truly have a way of reaching
us in a very primal way.  Don’t get me wrong, I can enjoy Electronica just as much as anyone but for me, Acoustic Music dwells most harmoniously with that deep affection we
feel for music in our hearts.”

With Rob’s new solo project, Tumbleweed Rob & The Southwest Junction, he hopes to explore a more personal side of his artistic calling and give the folks who
have come to know him thus far a closer look at who he is as an artist and as a person.

“It’s easy to hide behind characters as cartoony and big as The Tumbling Tumbleweeds. It’s time to step out from behind the plaid and let people in a bit,” Says Rob, “It’s more interesting for me and hopefully it will be more interesting for my audience as well.”

Although Rob is a Singer-Songwriter of original works he still considers himself a “tribute artist” citing all the musical figures in his life who have had such a huge impact on him and who have influenced his own musical style.

“I think we’re all a composite of everyone who has influenced us in our lives.  That’s one of the beautiful things about being an artist and a human being, along with being a constant work in progress, we’re also all a part of each other in some way.”
