Dr Robertfirst came to prominence as the iconic front man ofThe Blow Monkeysduring a golden period of hit albums and singles in the mid 1980's. Sprouting opinions and striking poses in equal measure he blazed a trail with a series of self penned classics such as "Digging Your Scene" and "It Doesn't Have To Be This Way" as well as collaborating with Chicago DivaKym Mazelle,Algerian Rai KingCheb Khaledand soul legendCurtis Mayfield.
His first solo album "Realms Of Gold" (1994) was hailed as a classic of its kind. Imbued with the spirit of his Greenwich Village heroes such asFred NeilandTim Hardin, it contained the radio hit "The Coming Of Grace" featuring his friend and collaboratorPaul Weller.Robert returned the favour, playing bass and guitar all over “Wildwood” and “Stanley Road”.
Thus started a series of eclectic and singular solo albums and further collaborations with artists such asBeth OrtonandTerry Callieras well as writing and producing an album of duets with 60's soul legendPP Arnold.
Restless as ever, Robert returned to solo work in 2016 with his tenth solo outing "Out There". Recorded at his home in Spain on his ancient 8 track Tascam tape machine.
