"I moved to Australia, ran out of money and had to busk my way home… along the way I wrote an E.P"
Robert Bearsby has been gaining momentum throughout 2013 since playing his first show in January in his home town of Royal Tonbridge Wells. A swelling fan base has been waiting with tangible anticipation for his debut release.
Writing lyrics based on real life experiences, Robert’s songs are an insight into the way he views the world around him, “I’ll think of something in particular, and the way it makes me feel, and I just try to reflect that… To express something I’m trying to say is most important to me”
Robert will be releasing his debut single ‘Late Nights & Traffic Lights’ through indie label Twin Pines Records on Monday 16th September.
Produced by Anthony Galatis of Tinderbox Songs & mastered by Christian Wright at Abbey Road Studios, ‘Late Nights & Traffic Lights’, is a tale of one man busking late at night trying to leave behind the seedy surroundings, and the characters that he met on the way, “People would have fights around me, steal money from my guitar case and, I even had to shuffle along once after one guy was sick next to me!”
An insight into Robert’s life whilst in Australia trying to get enough money to get back to the UK, the song shows the inner doubts of a budding musician and the fears of being alone in unfamiliar territory.
2013 has been a great year so far for Robert, gaining a residency at Tonbridge venue The Grey Lady after just his second ever show. Wowing crowds in his home town was followed by heading into the studio to record a series of singles which will be released throughout the remainder of the year. He opened the sold out Nizlopi show at The Borderline on 16th June, played to over 3000 people at the Tentertainment Fesitval.
