Rob Larkin is a schooled and road-seasoned guitarist, award-winning songwriter, singer and collaborator. The lead singer and guitarist for the Portland-based band The Wayward Ones, Rob regularly tours the United States as a solo artist as well as with the band.  Rob has been a front-man his whole life. The eldest of 20+ cousins, Rob developed a funk face and love of organizing acts from an early age. He is happiest when he is part of a band whether he is on lead vocals, lead guitar or playing rhythm and singing harmonies.

He also started Lowground Records in 2018 with his brother Owen to fulfill a lifelong goal of making, sharing and supporting music together. They believe that the best music, communities and companies are built on collaboration and commitment to a shared vision. Lowground Records is their vision for what a record label should be. Their goal is to make as much music as possible for as many people as possible while shifting the balance of power to the people that matter the most: the people who make music, and the people who enjoy it. ​​
