For those who don't know Robb, as a teenager he suffered a life-threatening car accident. On top of significant physical injuries, Robb also experienced "anger, self-doubt and depression". However, Robb found passion and purpose in music, which helped his body, soul and mind recover. Since then Robb has been using his story and musical talents to connect with youth and talk about tough subjects like mental health. He and his band now travel across Canada, providing free shows at schools, youth centres, and even detention facilities, to help individuals discover their significance and find inner hope.
While it is obvious that Robb has had a profound impact on countless lives, his project has also helped to save lives as to date they report that over 350 students have turned in suicide notes to them following their shows.
