Rod released his first album "Solo" in 1975, played in some bands, but after losing on Star Search, turned to soundtrack work, emerging only in 2018 with three straight albums of acoustic singer-songwriter and instrumental material.

We discuss "My Father Was a Quiet Man" (and listen to "Whiskey & Pie") from Normal Isn't Normal Anymore (2021), "How to Forget" from The Man I'm Supposed to Be (2018), and "Working the Mill" and "Battle in Laketown" from The Hobbit Official Soundtrack (2003). Intro: "Driving to Dan’s" from Rage Original Game Soundtrack (2011). For more, see rodabernethy.com.
