Rob Clove is an NYC-based vocalist, saxophonist, songwriter, and actor from Fayetteville, North Carolina. Not too long ago, he explained the meaning behind his debut EP, untitled, “Energy of Humanity”, a soul classic mixed with old and new sounds.
Rob Clove – Little Black Boys”
The first single from Clove’s EP which caught our attention was “Little Black Boy”. The song, dedicated to marginalized boys and girls, brings awareness to why some of them never make it back home within African-American communities.
“Energy of Humanity”
“This is my first true original project as a bandleader and writer since beginning my journey through music. I wanted this EP to be meaningful. Understanding that this opportunity is not taken for granted and may be once in a lifetime. Also, I’ve been wrestling with the idea behind how people make choices in everyday life. But, more importantly, why?” – Rob Clove
“What’s the difference from those who are content with life compared to others who continue to face long-term sadness and grief? I’ve come to believe that the difference is based on the foundation of our daily decisions. Also, the competition of fear versus love. It appears that when choices are made out of love (in spite of fear), the results have profound rewards such as joy, compassion, peace, hope, and even prosperity.
“The power surrounding love has been shown to positively influence ideas, thought process, and behaviors of individuals. Also, this alone is the sole reason and inspiration behind this project. Overall, the point is that this unique force, our “Energy of Humanity“, is innate within all of us. The more we learn about who we are as spiritual beings living a human experience, the quicker we realize that we are compelling people. We have the ability to transmit this energy to everyone with whom we come in contact.”
“This in return creates a domino effect in which we consciously and purposely evolve as a whole. Let’s take our life lessons and use it for finding self-love. Also, love of those we may have broken through relationships, and remembering the issues we face in our communities.”
