It's been a busy year for Robbie Boyd and his band, having played to 35,000 people at the Olympic Park sharing the stage with McFly and The Feeling, performed live for the second time on ITV’s ‘This Morning’ to millions of people and sold out his last 5 headline London shows at the Barfly, Bowery, Bedford, Borderline and Bush Hall. Robbie has been played on Xfm, Absolute Radio, 6 Music and BBC Radio 2 and was invited to perform on Chris Evans’ Radio 2 Breakfast Show. He made the top 20 of MTV’s Brand New Unsigned 2013 and his song ‘Oh Alaska’ made the finals of the International Songwriting Competition in Nashville. Robbie has already toured Argentina, France, Germany, Italy and the UK, has also shared stages with The Kooks, Daughter, King Charles, Johnny Flynn, and The Staves, and performed at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, Hyde Park, Bestival and Wilderness Festival. Robbie recently became the first ever Briton to perform on the roof of the O2 Arena, and third ever artist after Bon Jovi and 30 Seconds to Mars!
With a busking background, Robbie has built a large international fan base of nearly 10,000 Facebook fans and half a million YouTube views, and has released 3 EPs to great acclaim and chart success. His live shows have been positively reviewed in The Times, Evening Standard, Telegraph and Time Out, with online support from Huffington Post, Rolling Stone ME and NME. Robbie’s charming songwriting and distinctive vocals combine with colourful arrangements and nostalgic harmonies, provided by his eclectic band, to produce an exciting and uplifting contemporary acoustic-folk-pop-rock sound, somewhere between Arcade Fire, John Mayer and Two Door Cinema Club. Robbie will be doing a headline tour of the UK with his band in October/November 2013, and with fans like Ray Davies, Tim Rice and Graham Norton you’d be mad to miss it.
Robbie’s new EP, ‘Painted Sky’, is out now, and features four upbeat songs, which will have you on your feet dancing and singing along in no time.
