It’s great to welcome award winning singer/songwriter Robbie Cavanagh back to the Milton Rooms!
This year sees him present his newest body of work ‘Tough Love’ to the world. A brand new studio album recorded live with his incredible band.
A self-confessed devotee of ‘real music’, Robbie Cavanagh is not defined by genres. His only rules are good musicians, real instruments, great microphones and performance with emotion; capturing sound, not producing it. Believing we live in a world where music is produced and consumed like fast food, to fill a hole where speed and value for money is prioritised over quality, Robbie is in the game for what he coins “fine dining music”.
Robbie performs self-penned, unscrubbed music, and when he puts pen to paper, he lives by his own words. ‘”The more you wrestle with an idea, the more contrived it becomes”. His songs are rich with honesty, emotion, and most importantly; instinct.
Cavanagh’s previous releases have been championed by Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2 and have received additional radio support from Absolute Country Radio and Chris Country Radio.
Robbie and his band have graced many UK festival stages including Black Deer, The British Country Music Festival, Maverick, BlueDot, Cornbury, Wilderness, Buckle and Boots, and Silverstone Woodlands, and have performed in the UK, Europe and USA alongside artists including The Shires, The Wandering Hearts, Jarrod Dickenson, Aaron Lee Tasjan, The Deslondes, Beth Nielson Chapman, and Mary Gauthier.
