ROB

APOLLO

Hailing from Detroit but currently based in St. Louis, ROB APOLLO is vibrant and memorable. Never one to be pigeon-holed, all of APOLLO’s music is rooted in hip-hop, but finds inspiration from other genres such as alternative rock, punk, and most recently, pop. He is influenced by other black, multi-faceted artists such as Father, Earl Sweatshirt, Kevin Abstract, and JPEGMAFIA.  His songwriting is reflective of his multi-faceted personality, with songs ranging from morose personal narratives to outlandish sexual braggadocio. It's been five years since APOLLO started releasing music, and his discography aptly captures his stylistic growth.

 

APOLLO's confident attitude and eccentric personality shine through most in his live shows. He’s performed at numerous well-established venues in Detroit and St. Louis, such as El Club, The Magic Stick, Contemporary Art Museum, Kranzberg Art Center, and Blueberry Hill, and he has shared the stage with established artists such as Lara Stevenson, Flint Eastwood, and Black Spvde. Since moving to St. Louis for college in 2017, APOLLO has released three albums: the self-titled APOLLO in November 2017, his sophomore record, HADES, in March 2019, and his latest project, "Whore," in November 2019.
