Singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Robin Grey started his music career at the age of 5 with the help of a Fisher-Price cassette recorder and a love of singing Burt Bacharach songs to his grandma. His musical tastes soon branched out, thanks to mix tapes that arrived after collecting tokens from overly sugared breakfast cereal packets.
He has since composed five albums of thoughtful and gently experimental folk music which have been streamed over 5m times on Jamendo, winning him fans as far away as Brazil, Korea and Russia. His music has ended up in a cult Korean gay movie, a French TV comedy series and other suitably random locations.
Robin has graced the boards of Cecil Sharpe House, Hebden Bridge Trade’s Club and The Union Chapel, sharing stages with Kate Tempest, Peggy Seeger, Ed Sheeran and Sam Lee along the way.
With other hats on, Robin devised and performs a show called ‘Three Acres And A Cow‘, teaching people about English radical history through folk songs; has been undertaking musical cycling pilgrimages under the rubric of ‘Pedal Folk‘ and also infamously serenaded UK Prime Minister David Cameron during the 2015 general election, which won him praise from Ian Hislop and Charlie Brooker plus less flattering attention from Guido Fawkes.
