Robert Rolfe Feddersen named Chicago's 93XRT/Local Anesthetic's Best of 2016!”

— Richard Milne, Host


Robert Rolfe Feddersen is a singer/songwriter from Chicago who currently resides in Crown Point, Indiana.  Robert's songwriting style is very open, honest, reflective, humorous and topical.  He has a well-crafted nine album catalog of songs, in which the last three, "Pepper In His Heart,"  "My Terri Ann" and "American Loser" were recorded entirely analog in Chicago at Electrical by Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies, Cheap Trick).  Formerly the frontman of well-known mid-90s Chicago band LOUDMOUTH, Robert is a gold selling artist penning the hit song "Fly" from the film Varsity Blues.  His songs have also appeared in numerous movies, movie trailers and TV shows. Robert's style is Folk-Rock/Americana and his songwriting has been compared to early Springsteen/Steve Earle/Woody Guthrie and his live shows are entertaining, engaging and audience-inclusive and he has a unique style to his guitar playing -- taking a properly strung right-handed guitar and flipping it left handed so the strings are in reversed order. “I break a lot of high E strings playing this way, but it’s the only way I understand and play the guitar.”
