Hard work and perseverance. Those are the corner stones of Rob West’s life. It’s in his roots, dating all the way back to 1863 when his family settled in the Prescott area of Arizona. Settlers and pioneers with a determination to succeed. Those family traits have served this home grown Arizona boy well throughout his life.
Receiving his first guitar at the age of 6 it was love at first sight, giving Rob a passion for music that continues to this day. Taught by his older brother, Rob’s first taste for performing was around the house to friends and relatives. As Rob grew up he began to write songs based on the experiences of his life…some of the good times and several of the tragic ones that shaped and changed him. Singing and song writing gave him the perfect outlet to let him express his feelings and release the pressures of life’s trials and tribulations.
Rob has also been a professional golfer for over 20 years. His career has taken him all over the country since 1992 where he played various tours.
In 2013 Rob was cast on the Golf Channel reality show Big Break Mexico. It was during that experience he found that his passion for music was overtaking his love for golf. After producers handed him a guitar during filming one evening and he performed for them, it was clear to all who were present that Rob needed to follow his talent for music.
Rob tirelessly devotes endless hours offering support and assistance to several charities, traveling around the country with other celebrities raising donations and awareness wherever they can for a worthy cause. Rob is an ambassador for the Folds of Honor Foundation Arizona Chapter and The Veteran Golfers Association. Rob grew up in a family of Veterans and patriots two of which were highly decorated soldiers. His patriotism knows no boundaries.
Rob currently performs throughout the Country, making new fans and delighting his strong supporters.
