Welcome to the Website of ROB THORPE

(Guitarist (unemployed), Novelist (unpublished), Composer (unreleased) & Human Being (undaunted))

Hello

I'm Rob. I play guitar, compose music and write novels. Welcome to my website. 

My Band

In 2020  I plan (or at least, had planned, before the world went into lockdown) to start gigging again, as guitarist with a new band--The Axe Factor--which will play a rock/rock-blues tribute to my guitar heroes Gary Moore, (Dr) Brian May of Queen and many more. Hopefully I will eventually be able to move this project when--if--the world returns to normal.

My Album

My album, The Other Planets is a suite of original, mainly orchestral music inspired by Holst's The Planets, filmmusic & the planets of science-fiction films, books, comics & TV shows. It is available from:

As well as The Other Planets, my YouTube and SoundCloud channels include additional music tracks I have written and/or arranged, such as:

My Novel

The first draft of my first novel, a lightly comic science fiction adventure story, ungrammatically called Time & Hope & Elephants is almost complete, and will hopefully be (self-)published  in 2021.

Thanks for visiting,

Rob.
