Joseph Waldron, A.K.A JoRob, was born in Washington D.C, but as a child he moved he moved between Virginia & Maryland with his younger brother & older sister after his father was robbed and brutally murdered. Being the oldest male in his family, JoRob was forced to become the man of the household. JoRob had to find ways to make ends meet; so he started singing. Not only did singing help bring money to JoRob’s family; it helped him suppress the pain he felt from the loss of his father. JoRob would go to all the recording studios in his area looking for artist who needed a talented singer to feature on their songs. Using the pain that lay deep within his soul, JoRob would grace each track with his urban resonance; turning each song into a musical work of art. JoRob has a unique sound that captures the mid 90’s & modern R&B sounds of today. JoRob is constantly re-inventing himself to reach perfection. “There is always room for improvement. When you settle, that’s when you, as an artist, will fail.” JoRob
