Rob Knox: “Never Stop”

Author: 
Josh Robinson, GRAMMY Camp LA

Welcome to day four of GRAMMY Camp Los Angeles where professionals from the music industry have joined all of the campers at the Carson Sound Stage for a panel to discuss the realities of pursuing a career in music.

While all the artists provided valuable insight, Rob Knox stressed the importance of trusting in yourself in the music business. Rob Knox is a GRAMMY-nominated producer/songwriter who has worked with a vast array of artists, including Justin Timberlake, T.I., Jamie Foxx, and Ciara. After the panel, I talked with Knox about confidence.

Like many young artists today, Knox was initially discouraged when pursuing music. However, he used the negativity as his motivation when forming his career. “Just keep going on,” he advised. “If it’s something you truly love, you won’t give up. If you give up, you truly didn’t love it.” He admitted to knowing how the campers think and feel. Through the anxiousness, nervousness, and “weird feelings,” Knox clearly expressed that the journey isn’t always easy. “Obstacles and walls could slow you down, and that’s fine. Although that’s a part of the process, you always have to find a way through it or around it. Never stop.”
