"Music has always been in my heart; the industry can be incredibly tough however it's having the love for music what keeps you going. Kindness, compassion and empathy is so incredibly important to me as is uplifting others which is something music tends to do and I love that, this is what it's all about for me"
Robbie has always been into music since a very young age, purchasing his first drum kit at 5, scouted by the Leeds College Of Music & playing the Royal Albert Hall in London he later went on as a vocalist touring the UK, appearing on Radio Roadshows, Xmas lights switch on's & performing alongside other successful chart acts.
A few years later, Robbie achieved 2 people's choice number one records across Eastern Europe being the first ever act to do this with no label or management backing beating established acts such as Britney, Kylie, 50 Cent, Pink, U2 & more.
This resulted in lots of UK media attention including ITV, Ch4, BBC, The Sun, The Stage, VH1.Com and various other TV & press across the UK aswell as Yahoo OZ & NZ.
To top the year off he was then voted by listeners of Kanal 77 as the second most popular record of the year after the station entered the track in their hit of the year awards against 11 other artists which lead to more media attention and another achievement for Robbie on his growing music career.
The official charts were published in Teen Scheme magazine which is equivalent to Smash Hits magazine in the UK.

Robbie later appeared in Matt's music video for his single I Need The Key alongside Abi Titmuss, Jeff Brazier, Brandon Block, Craig Charles and Bill Wyman (Rolling Stones) among others rotating on all the music channels and shown on Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
After this Robbie flew to Amsterdam to write and record the track Hot Girls which gained a massive response spending 12 consecutive weeks in the European radio chart.

One of Robbie's most proud moments was receiving a tweet from Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson while listening to his EP of which Dwayne tweeted "Congrats on your album dude! Cool stuff and I dig the funk" alongside the hashtag 'on tha good foot' which is a line from Dee Tails on the record.
Robbie went on to say "I can never take these things for granted at all, The Rock didn't have to tweet me or take time out of his day to do so for me but he did and I'm incredibly gracious. The little things mean the most and this means the world to me; I hope he knows how truly gracious I am for this, whole heartedly"
Robbie has worked with the fantastic Dee Tails from the group MN8 (I've Got A Little Something For You) who appears on the tracks Nasty Funk, Gotta Get Away and Breaking The Rules, written by Robbie and Dee Tails and recorded with Oscar Lo Brutto.

"I have nothing but huge respect for the UFC and the athletes, they give their all to what they do which is something I can relate to with the music and admire massively. The UFC and the team have been truly kind to me as have many of the athletes which also I can never take for granted and am hugely grateful for their continued kindness"
