“I was personally convinced of the power of his songs when I saw him live”
"On October 25, 2019 I was personally convinced of the power of his songs when I saw him live. Yes, it was a nice experience, not only to have met a very personable person, but also to have attended a very special kind of history lesson."

“definitely one of the best Folk/Americana Albums thus far in 2018”
“Rob McHale’s new release, Prophets on the Boulevard, is one of the few newer albums that offers a cohesive group of songs about American people, places, and events. McHale’s smooth vocals blend with Chris Rosser’s production, adding just enough instrumentation to create a full sound without destroying the folk authenticity. Prophets on the Boulevard is definitely one of the best folk/Americana albums thus far in 2018, consistently good from first song to last.”
– Ken “Dr. K” Nagelberg, Host of “It’s For Folks,”

“Music of a hundred years ago …”
"Music of a hundred years ago, from yesterday or today - whenever you place them, the songs of Rob McHale should be taught in school, because they reflect vibrant history, the value of tradition and living social comment. This North Carolina-based poet, musician and composer writes folk Americana songs that walk you through their narratives in an entirely involving way. They bring home the wealth of heritage and place it firmly in the present, they observe the days we live in and offer valuable meaning."
