Nobody's Business

Track Cover Art for Nobody's Business

"Nobody's Business" features the multi-talented Nick Rivard on slide and rhythm guitar. Rob's vocal has a slight "telephone" or "can" tone to not only sonically evoke a retro and bygone age, but to shoot a lyrical arrow squarely at the 21st century digital age (i.e., privacy concerns, marriage inequality, etc.). Rob actually played/constructed the drum parts from his own kit, played bass (with a pick, which was something new for him), keys and the plunger-inflected trumpet solo. Nick Rivard's guitar contributions were an indispensable icing that finally made the track sound bonifed. "Why do you affect me so / raising up my pulse, you add a flush and a blush to my skin tone... / well that's nobody's business / nobody's business but my own."
