Rob Hollins has been with Phoenix since 1989. His first remembrances of singing are in a radio station, at age 5, and being yanked back, by his braces, from an over-sensitive microphone. Singing in school choirs led to UBC, more choirs and a music degree. He currently teaches elementary music at an inner-city school. His favourite non-music activity is walking the dachshund, Zéna, with his wife, Maureen, in Surrey's Tynehead Park.
