Rob McWilliam  ➳ Music contributor

Rob McWilliam bestowed stand-up & electric  bass, piano, organ, keyboards and bagpipes on Sometimes Y’s tracks. The independent music professional is an organist at Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist.

Sometimes Y

A year from their first serendipitous encounter at a local poetry reading, Rutkowski began writing acoustic guitar riffs around Nigro's lyrics and melodies in her Eastside studio apartment. They formed the recording group Sometimes Y and released two EP’s, "I Am" and "That’s Not What I Heard" produced with Emmy award winning composer, Peter Buffett.

💿 I Am

 The lushly orchestrated concept album with an epic timber was a four year endeavor mastered by Bob Ludwig, Gateway Mastering, Portland, Maine. It garnered back to back WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) awards for best artist.

💿 That's Not What I Heard

Developed through live performance in regional venues, That's Not What I Heard is stripped down to electric and organic acoustic guitars melded with the emotive swells of the Chapman Stick®.
