Rob. A is part of the Los Angeles songwriting and production collective Graffiti, a creative hive similar to Atlanta’s hit-making team The Clutch. A growing force in the contemporary music world, Rob. A has co-penned recent smashes including Rihanna’s dance-pop hit “Disturbia” and Chris Brown’s “Forever” - both Top 10 on the Billboard Pop charts.
