Graiguenamanagh, County Kilkenny
Debut Single ‘Wanna Love’ out now
Niall Power Head of Music at Beat 102/103 "It's a cracking pop song - as good as any of the international artists on our playlists".
‘Wanna Love’ may be Robert’s debut single release, however, this all rounder from Graignamanagh in Co. Kilkenny is no stranger to the studio, or the charts!
Wanna Love continues to receive National airplay on 2fm, Beat, iRadio and on stations across the country. It reached No 5 on the Independent Airplay Charts.
Robert’s debut EP ‘Talk To Me’ released in May 2016 reached No 2 on the Irish iTunes charts and was the most played song on RTE Radio 1 during June 2016.
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.
