Meeting new artists is always an exciting time for the staff here at Center Stage Magazine. Just before the holidays, we were given the opportunity to meet with up and coming artist Robert Rooke. 

As soon as I took a moment to listen to his music, read up on his background, and check out his social media, I knew we were going to have a lot to talk about. The minute we were in the same room together, we immediately started comparing notes on terms people use all over the world as Rooke is from Canada, I am from California, and Tommy Lemon is from West Virginia, yet we were all in Nashville, Tennessee. Needless to say, we all laughed quite a bit.

The laughing did not stop there. There were several fun moments in our interview and one that I just did not see coming. Who would have ever thought that a photo on social media could lead to such an interesting and entertaining story? Rooke definitely has a personality that attracts others. He has the ability to make anyone he is with to feel like they have been friends for years, so I can only imagine that watching him on stage is an extremely special experience for fans. Be sure to watch our full conversation now to get to know Rooke and discover what it was that had us laughing.

His new EP The Road captures Rooke's strong vocals and superior songwriting skills. His song "Don't Take This" instantly caught my attention as it was a different view on one of life's many challenges that I think others can really relate to. Rooke also pays tribute to his musical influences by incorporating hints of them throughout his work. John Mayer, for one, should be proud. Keep your eyes on this guy. Rooke is no doubt one artist that should be on everyone's playlist in 2018. 

If you are not following him on social media yet, please do so now. Do not forget to check out his website and stay tuned for all he has coming up. Share him with your friends too. They will thank you for it. Until next time, enjoy his EP, give his page a like and be sure to share it on your page. ~Missy

From an early age I knew music and entertainment were in my blood. I have always been enamored with the idea of being in this industry, though I never wanted to be a front and center "Star". Taking the audience behind the scenes for up close conversations with the artists they love is where I want to be. Life in lyrics has always been my style, so as my favorite country artist Wade Hayes sings, I am living my life and chasing my dreams! Conducting interviews, meeting talented people and sharing stories and adventure are my passion. My new favorite hashtag is #iaskyouanswer, so stay tuned for more interviews, articles and adventures!
