Adopting its name from the rhodes keyboard that sits at the center of its sound, Isle of Rhodes is the moniker for Rob Farren's hard hitting indie rock project. Known for interweaving dynamic stylings and virtuosic abilities, while fashioning rock with an ensemble flair, Isle of Rhodes, draws upon on blues, funk, and classical elements, with influences ranging from Gershwin, Beethoven, Radiohead, The Beatles, Arcade Fire, to Roy Orbison.
Started in 2011 under the name Seafarers Union, the project officially became Isle of Rhodes in the spring of 2012 with a release of a full-length LP, All Rivers and Oceans. After multiple national tours throughout 2012 and 2013 the project lent its music to Zach Braff’s Kickstarter campaign for his 2014 film Wish I Was Here. Striking the perfect balance between ‘hipster’ and rock, Isle of Rhodes released it's EP Affirmation Caravan this past February and is currently in the process of recording its second full length album.
