ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Robb originally hails from Southend-on-Sea - the land of Dr Feelgood, The Kursaal Flyers, Eddie and The Hot Rods, to name a few. It was these influences (and missing the last bus home from the sea front) that prompted him to buy his first harmonica. He moved to Cambridge as a teenager after completing a drama course, to take theatre to prisons and schools. Never letting go of his musical aspirations, Robb developed his harmonica playing beyond his Blues roots to create his own, very unique sound. Harmonica is an instrument that he specializes on and uses it for session work and composing/recording. He also writes and records for music library, and is passionate about films/film music and photography. At the moment Robb is working on projects recording harmonica with natural and electronic sounds with vocals. He has just completed writing and recording his first solo album in a colourful career that has included collaborations with such other fine musicians as Rick Fenn (guitarist with 10CC), Robyn Hitchcock (The Soft Boys), Dr Robert (The Blow Monkeys) and many others.

‘The Wood’

“This is a brilliant and fascinating work, which was first heard before seeing the CD or its case. The electronically produced sounds are used to suggest voices of creatures in perhaps a forest. At other times human conversation is hinted at, whilst tympani is cleverly used to portray differing moods maybe of joy, sadness, anxiety; to set the scenes of action and often is a background to them.

A scarcely audible human voice tells of hills and lovely countryside so important at the end. The music of the various tracks cleverly portrays the scenes and action taking place throughout the story being told.

This is pure surrealism in music just as Picasso is to art, Dali, Dada and Breton to early 20th century French literature.

I feel the composer is expressing ideas from his unconscious mind with dream like images of scenes, people and events both past and to come. In all a very interesting work” - Dennis Doyle
