Robert John Ardiff
Summerhill, County Meath
"A record filled to the brim with harmonically wrapped textures and soft intimacy."
- The Last Mixed Tape
"An album of wistful wee hours gems."
- The Sunday Times
An expressive singer songwriter with a "melodic and warm" signature croon" (GoldenPlec), Robert John Ardiff is a beloved member of the Irish music community, having been part of the Choice Music-nominated band Come On Live Long. However, his debut solo EP “The Fall” was lauded by critics and gained Ardiff widespread solo notoriety.
Ardiff's debut LP "Between the Bed and Room" is an opus whose songs "etch themselves on you with great ease. [It is a work that] tends towards minimal folk with Ardiff's soft, mesmeric croon evoking Father John Misty" (Remy). The album was recorded during a series of sessions in his “boxroom” in two hour stints. Ardiff wanted to create something that sounded real, tangible and something that sounded like it was played by a person in their bedroom and not a machine. The songs deal with themes of growing up in a small Irish village, love, betrayal and understanding.
Off the success of "Between the Bed and Room" Ardiff mounted an Irish tour of some of the country's most beloved venues, and has secured a 3 song sync deal for the John Carney-driven "Modern Love," set to air on Amazon Prime this summer.
