There was a lyric in a song released by David Nail, some ten years ago, that kept popping into my head while listening to Rob Bellamy’s new offering. The lyric from “The Sound of a Million Dreams” was “So I labor for hours ’cause I know the power of a song, when a song hits you right.” There truly is power in a song, when it hits just right.

“Save Us A Couple Slow Ones,” Bellamy’s moving new original is sure to hit just right, for any parent. This well-crafted piece of artistry showcases Rob’s ability to express his vuneralbility in such an honest way. It’s not manipulative, as some “songs from the heart” tend to be, in that they purposely aim to evoke emotions. This just feels real. And beautiful. And yeah, it hit me just right.

Rob’s songwriting is thoughtful and authentic, and gets better with every piece of work. He has a way of communicating that is immaginative and sincere. This former hockey player keeps it real. He doesn’t get caught up in too much imagery to cloud the message. It’s almost inconceivable that Rob didn’t even pick up a guitar until he was 23 years old. Life experiences make for the best stories, and clearly this singer/songwriter has some great stories to tell… and songs that hit just right.

  • Rob on the Record

    Rob’s brand new song, “Save Us A Couple Slow Ones,”  came from being a first time dad. He shared more about this special song, ” I wrote this song about my son Bear, who was just born in August. I kept asking people when my wife Ayla was pregnant, if they had any advice for new parents. Everyone for the most part said to take it in because it goes by really fast. So I thought about all those people when I was writing this song. It’s a song about how I know time is gonna fly and my son is gonna grow up quick and the days will be fast, but this is a song to him telling him to save his parents a couple slow days. This ones for all the parents out there.
