Rob Momary -- Brief Intermission

His unique and captivating progressive alt folk sound remains one of pop music's best kept secrets. And with the release of Rob Momary's 6 song EP, "Brief Intermission, " this Las Vegas born underground hit is fast becoming a formidable musical force.



ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Rob Momary was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2001, he graduated from Wheaton College in Chicago, Illinois with B.A. degrees in Philosophy and Communications. He currently resides in Los Angeles, and is pursuing a career in music.

Rob learned to play guitar at 15 at the prompting of his dad, Doug, and sister, Laura. He was first inspired to write after a close childhood girlfriend moved to Tennessee.

Rob's first live appearance was with his sister in the summer of 1997. The two played several shows at a Las Vegas coffeehouse, showcasing original material in a laid-back folk/pop style. The brother and sister team recorded a demo CD during the winter months of the following year, but time and distance kept them from continuing a career together.

While attending college, Rob took a hiatus from live performances to pursue another passion (film), working creatively on numerous projects for his school and writing/directing a short film for a showcase his senior year. He re-emerged onto the college music scene in 2001, playing his first live show in four years at a spring house party, receiving great reviews for his tunes.

Upon graduation, Rob took the long road to Los Angeles, leaving life behind for an eye-opening trek around Europe with a college friend. After his arrival in L.A., Rob played several well-received solo shows at the Crooked Bar on Hollywood's Sunset Strip while working days as an Associate Producer of New Media for Telepictures Productions.

In the fall of 2001, Rob was introduced by a mutual friend to producer Jesse Deyo. Jesse and Rob found an immediate bond in their love for music, and soon pooled their resources to create "Brief Intermission," a captivating and unconventional 6-song demo EP of Rob's music.

The two began laying down tracks in the spring of 2002. Recorded for the most part during the midnight hours, Jesse and Rob's time in the studio was humorously dubbed "The Hong Kong Sessions." Rob explains: "Since we didn't have the money to pay for [studio] time during the day, Jess and I would take the studio's graveyard shift. Then I'd go to work, come home, sleep, and start work on the songs again the next night. It was like we were on Hong Kong time." The EP was completed after nine months of work, uniquely capturing Rob's songs with its progressive neo-folk/pop sound.

Since completing "Brief Intermission," Rob has designed a website showcasing his music (www.robmomary.com) and is currently playing shows and open-mics in the L.A. area.
