After rising to fame with no management or booking agents and touring at many festivals around the world, Rob Lynch has done quite well for himself. His first EP released in 2011 without a pseudonym was a self-titled one back in 2011, and before that Lynch called himself Lost On Campus. 2016 brings his newest release Baby I’m A Runaway, his first album in two years.
Having not released anything since All These Nights In Bars Will Somehow Save My Soul, it seems Lynch hasn’t run out of any ideas about how to make great rock music. The album certainly packs a punch, which is evident in the first few lines of ‘Prove It!’ – listening to that track alone sucks you in to the rest of the album like quicksand, with the climax of the last track bringing you out of the hypnotic trance of Lynch’s listening experience.
There’s a few acoustic tracks on there too, with ‘Kings & Queens’ wrapping up the album perfectly. His rockstar voice being quietened down for these songs shows a serene part of his personality and that he does have a sensitive side, it’s not all shouting and loudness. A great album to acquaint yourself with if you like Rock music.
