Robert Gillies is one part award-winning songwriter, one part folk-popper, and every bit an infectiously energetic performer. Ask him what he writes and the may take you by surprise: "Soap rock. I write folky, poppy, soft rock. Too many words for a genre. So I put it all together and got soap rock. It says it all, though; soap is bubbly and refreshing, and that's what I love to play. Music that gets you high on life and deeper in."
This Boston-based Scot is making moves, and fast. After snatching up a degree at Berklee College of Music in just over two years, he hit the earth sprinting with a performance on Ellen, appearances with Andy Grammer, Charlie Worsham, and Charlie Puth, and a slew of songwriting awards. Armed with his latest release, 'Astronaut', Robert Gillies is rocketing into the stratosphere, and he wants to take you along for the ride!
