Glassnote recording artist Robert DeLong was raised in the suburbs of Seattle. He headed south to Los Angeles with a toolbox of Wii-motes, keyboards, and drums to develop a live rock show that CMJ Magazine claims worthy of “an 8-bit warrior, seamlessly creating danceable electro beats with his Wii Remote and Sega Genesis controller on par with the Chemical Brothers.”
DeLong began performing his genre-bending songs in 2010 with a collection of MIDI interfaces, a full drum set, drum pads, keyboards, live-looping, laptops, and game controllers, for a fusion of electronic dance beats with rock ‘n’ roll melodies.
As DeLong started playing more and more shows, he immediately caught the attention of critics and fans alike. He has recently played the Silver Lake Jubilee Festival, opened for STRFKR, and had a month-long residency at The Echoplex. DeLong’s single “Global Concepts” has become the most request song on Albany’s alternative rock station, WEQX. Robert DeLong has also received radio play from influential rock stations like KCRW and KROQ.
