This has all now culminated to the release of his most personal record to date, “821 Monroe Drive”. As personal a statement as any artist could make, this is the album in which Rob Balducci comes full circle and shows us just how deep that well of inspiration he draws from can be. Brimming with all the staples you have come to expect from Balducci; infectious melodies, stunning musicianship and gorgeous tones all shaped to take you, the listener on an aural journey that will not only surprise, excite and thrill you from the first note to the last, but leave you wondering ‘How did he do that?’
