Static In Verona is singer-songwriter Rob Merz. The debut album, Be Quiet As You Leave, is filled with a collection of catchy songs mostly detailing the troubled romances of various friends and acquaintances. Piecing together elements of indie pop and aspects of electric folk, the songs are upbeat and poppy, yet haunting and elegant. Pressing acoustic against electric, they set the stage for a theme of heartbreak and redemption that runs throughout the album.

Recently, the band released the four-song E.P., Life-Sized Replica, which is available for FREE on

"Caught my ear right off the bat. Pop music with a nice little twist."
- WXRT radio host Richard Milne (2/15/09 Local Anesthetic featured song)

"Rob's stark use of electronics is the perfect compliment to his restrained take on pop music."
- The Deli Magazine, Chicago (April Artist of the Month)
