Bio

After years of working the Montreal and Canadian club circuit,
touring the world as Bullfrog’s front man and kid koala’s guitar
player, headlining clubs and festivals all over north America and
Europe, Robertson has been turning heads as a solo artist.
Since his well received 2004 release ” Deeper Shade of Green”
Robertson could be seen playing shows in Canada and Europe,
appearing on bass for Money Mark, opening for Kid Koala, MichaelFranti
and SpearHead, BlueRodeo, Soulive…and more.
His solo show has pleased audiences in small clubs and festivals
across Canada, France, Germany and SouthAfrica, recently
escalating to reputed stages such as L’OPA Bastille in Paris,The BarleyCorn in CapeTown ZA and the prestigious
Theatre Maisonneuve at Place des Arts for the Festival Internationnal de Jazz de Montreal 2008.
Robertson’s new sound refl ects his past; a singer-songwriter steeped in soul, heavily rooted in funk, bluesing
on melancholic love songs with tongue in cheek and crooked pop-sensibilities, guitars laced with whas and mutrons, fi ngered and pedaled basses, live beats and sampled drums. Sometimes up and funky, at times down tempo and intimate. People who have heard Robertson are saying ” It’s baby making music …! “.
Live Robertson sings, plays guitars, bass, sampled drums, loops and effects, backed by the multi-instrumentalist Peter Santiago on bass and drums and other Bullfrogs always keeping things interesting and fun.
His new self produced release titled “Favorite People ” is 11 tracks of modern and vintage sounds and songs ; close and personal as an indie yet smooth as old 70’s soul . This ” baby making music ” was recorded in different home studios with the help from his favorite band Bullfrog, Kid Koala and Slim Williams, and mixed by Vid Cousin at Koala’s studio The Record Room.
