‘Rob Strong is unique. He is incredibly talented. In my opinion he is the best Blues or Soul singer to ever come out of Ireland. His innate gift is his voice and his timing is incredible’ COLM WILKINSON
‘Seeing Rob Strong with the Plattermen in the late ‘60s was a big influence on me. To hear a fellow Northerner sing the soul music I loved so well, gave me a lot of confidence that one day I could find my own voice. Rob is one of the true originals!’ PAUL BRADY
“I think Rob is an incredible singer, an amazing talent. I just don’t understand how he hasn’t become much bigger worldwide!” MARY COUGHLAN
‘When I think of Rob Strong I think of a big voice doing Bluesy stuff with a raw edge. Rob Strong has a big engine and a great vocal range’ PHIL COULTER
