Drenched in sunny nostalgia, Robbie Boyd shares the musical spirit of Paul Simon, Coldplay and Arcade Fire. He’s performed twice with his band on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ to millions of people and is the first ever Brit to have performed on the roof of the O2. Robbie's folk pop songs have been played on Xfm, Absolute Radio and BBC Radio 2 and he was invited to perform on Chris Evans’ BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show. He made the top 20 of MTV’s Brand New Unsigned for 2013, and has toured Argentina, Italy, France, Germany and the UK with his band. His last three London headline shows at The Barfly, Borderline and Bush Hall were all sold out and another UK tour is planned for 2013. He’s played on the same bill as The Kooks, King Charles and Johnny Flynn, performed at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Hyde Park, Bestival and Wilderness Festival, and is supporting The Feeling and McFly at the Olympic Park in July.
Discovered busking on the streets of London, Robbie grew up listening to and being inspired by artists like James Taylor,Bob Dylan and The Beatles. Music runs deep in Robbie’s veins and he’s been singing and playing guitar from a very early age. Robbie has built a large international fan base of nearly 9,500 Facebook fans and 500,000 YouTube channel views. His live shows have been positively reviewed in The Times, Evening Standard and The Telegraph. His former single ‘When I Believe’ was chosen as Record of the Day’s ‘Record of the Day’ and his first air played song ‘Oh Alaska’ made the finals of the International Songwriting Competition in Nashville.
Robbie’s charming song writing and distinctive vocals combine with colourful arrangements and nostalgic harmonies. He works with an eclectic mix of talented musicians, to produce an exciting and uplifting contemporary folk pop sound. Just in time for the summer, ‘Painted Sky’, which has already reached 79 in the iTunes pop album charts, is an upbeat four track EP featuring ‘Before It Falls Apart’, ‘Oh Alaska’, ‘Red Queen’ and new single ‘I Want You To Stay’.
