Rob Town

Previously a member of British rock group Panic Cell, Rob has toured the world and shared stages with the likes of Metallica, Papa Roach, Alice in Chains, Alice Cooper, Disturbed and Skindred.  He’s also played Download Festival, Sonisphere, Bloodstock Festival, Wacken and SXSW. Through his PR/Marketing agency Stampede Press, Rob has worked with artists such as Terrorvision, Wayward Sons, The Virginmarys and Winger, as well as helping up and coming artists like The Rocket Dolls, Samarkind, Buffalo Summer, Krysthla, Courtesans, Haxan and others to establish themselves in the music industry. In 2018, he co-founded music management consultation firm Lightning in a Bottle with Toby Jepson (Planet Rock/Wayward Sons/Little Angels). In 2019, Rob graduated from WaterBear with an MA in Music Industry Innovation and Enterprise. 

“Studying for my Masters Degree with WaterBear is one of the best things I have ever done. It’s literally changed my life and enabled me to gain a firm understanding of who I am and what it is I want to do with my life.

As someone that left college in 1992 to pursue a long term journey as a musician, re-entering education at a later age in 2018 at such a high level was incredibly daunting. However challenging, WaterBear equipped me with the tools necessary and supported me at all times, especially when my spirits were flagging. As a creative musician and business person, I’ve now backed up my experience with a University qualification and I can’t tell you just how great that makes me feel!”
