‘TALK TO ME’ may have been Robert’s debut solo release, however, this all rounder from the beautiful town of Graignamanagh in Co. Kilkenny is no stranger to the studio, or the charts!
In recent years Robert has developed into a songwriter/producer/performer of note.
Robert wrote three and co-produced four tracks on Hometown’s recent chart topping album released on Sony Music. He has also co-written with some of the best-known songwriters in the UK including:
Dan McDougall (The Wanted, The Shires)
Blair MacKichan (Paloma Faith/Sia/Lily Allen)
Phil Thornalley (Natalie Imbruglia/Pixie Lott)
Josh Wilkinson (One Direction / 5 seconds of Summer)
David Munday (Tina Turner/Pixie Lott/Belinda Carlisle)
In his capacity as writer and producer, Robert has helped other artist’s music achieve chart success.
It seems righteous, therefore, that his own EP, ‘Talk To Me’ entered the itunes album chart at No 2 on its release in May, and that the title track from the EP has garnered strong airplay across the country since its issue. Indeed, ‘Talk To Me’, the radio single, was the most played song on RTE Radio 1 this June.
The lead track, ‘Talk To Me’ is a perfect summer track. The super catchy intro & title EP track will have you tapping your fingers (and feet), before you realize.
Robert not surprisingly sold out his own hometown show to launch his new EP, and later the same month played an excellently received set at the prestigious Ruby Sessions in Dublin.
Robert will perform a headline gig at Whelan’s on Fri November 25th.
Robert grew up in a house immersed by traditional Irish music; his father plays in well-known local trad band ‘Keltic Cats’. Before long Robert was learning the guitar and wrote his first song aged 12. By aged 18 Robert had won a number of national & International songwriting awards including the Glinsk International Songwriting Award.
