“I wasn’t scared about sleeping rough, but I did need to eat. So I picked up my guitar, sat down at the side of the road and I sang to anyone who would listen to me. Three months later I had made enough money to get back home to England and I felt like if I could do that. I could do anything.” Robert Bearsby
That was less than two years ago. Now a rising star of the UK music scene, Robert Bearsby is on the cusp of a major breakthrough. Already a firm favourite of Absolute Radio DJs and widespread adulation from the ultra cool new music station Jemm Radio with his last two singles, Roberts short career so far has been nothing short of a whirlwind of media.
