Performing in and around Albany, NY, Rob Skane has been compared to an early Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello in terms of lyrical strength and delivery. In 1994, Skane released Throwing It All Back Up, a solo acoustic and cassette-only release. In 1997, after touring around the club circuit and coffeehouses, Skane released his first full-length album, Nowheresville. The album received praise for its simplicity and songwriting. Skane also performed as part of local Albany bands during this time, including Dugans and also the Lawn Sausages. In 2002, he released SelfNoise, his second album. He considers his music "garagefolkrocknroll" and has been dubbed as the Ace Frehley of Albany by musical peers. He also performs at various musical conferences and singer/songwriter sessions.
