We represent a large body of music with only one common feature: quality.
Styles range from UK pop and rock to soundtracks to Italian pop to instrumental songs.
Artist showcased here is robè, a singer-songwriter from Italy but who lived most of his life in the UK. All tracks are available for preview scrolling down the site.
Here we showcase his work released in the last couple of years (2018/19), including:
"ECO" and "ECCO" are two compilations of the recordings sung in Italian through the years. They will be accompanied by a booklet recounting stories and anecdotes accumulated in 30+ years of life in the UK.
"CASTELLO", was recorded in Italy with some of the best young musicians of their generation, including Antonino De Luca on accordion, award-winning Emanuele Di Teodoro on double bass, Federico Nelson Fioravanti on drums, and special guest Francesca Bonvini as guest vocalist on several tracks. Robè is on guitars and vocals.
Another CD is out NOW titled "A NIGHT IN CHESHAM" with 14 instrumental songs, some already released in previous CDs, but others, like the title track, are brand new.
Please check Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, and any of the other major online music retailers and players to access the full catalogue.
Finally, you will find seven (7) showcase videos of music ranging from pop-songs to soundtracks, co-written by Robè with several very talented song-writers and singers.
Robè's video showcase below was assembled a few years back but we show it here as a curiosity. The journey began many years ago in Leeds and eventually took him London, where he resided and worked for many years. The video starts with a performance at the Orange Club in South London with a very 'special' band. This group was hastily put together as a music industry showcase for Robè's music, but the level of musicianship was superb: on drums Dylan Howe (son of "Yes'" formidable guitarist), Leslie George on backing vocals (at the time a signed artist with Warner Bros. and then Sony), Kofi on percussion (then of Jemiroquai), Pippo Cerciello on electric violin (from top Italian folk-rock groups Musicanova and NCCP), and Matteo Saggese on keys (penned songs for top international acts like Zucchero and Il Divo).
This is followed
by a quick run through key moments in his career. Special highlights include a
rather flattering review of his demo by Future Music magazine, which rewarded
him with a special feature and “top stars”. One of his proudest moments was his
performance at the Ronnie Scott Club in London, one of the most famous Jazz
clubs in the world where he performed as a support act for Ola Onabulé. Other images
include pictures taken from his tour with Baz (as guitarist and co-writer of
most of her songs), here at the Shepherd Bush Empire in London. Last, an
up-to-date testimonial of his songs and live acoustic performance act with two
numbers played live just with his guitar to a photographic camera set on video,
from his ‘living room’!
As rough as it gets, but a fair snapshot of his
naked talent nevertheless.
