Robert Dobbs is a 26 year old bi-lingual singer/songwriter/musician from Chihuahua, Mexico. In addition to playing guitar and piano, he also produces, mixes, and masters his own music. Robert's music can be described as alternative pop/rock with cinematic elements. He describes it simply as Epic Pop.
When Robert was 6 years old, his uncle Ian observed that his nephew was very adept at playing video games. A gifted musician in his own right, Ian gave Robert a piano in the hopes that he would spend his time doing something "more productive". His uncle's hunch paid off and Robert attributes much of his career in music to his uncle’s generosity and foresight. At the age of 10, Robert began competing in school singing competitions. At 13, Robert became the keyboardist and lead singer of his first band called Lowen, an alternative/power metal band in Chihuahua. He also started playing guitar at 13. And in 2005 Robert joined pop/rock band Pulso.
Several years later when Robert was pursuing a degree in Mechatronics Engineering and Communications, he was contacted by Lafayette, Louisiana based pop/rock band The Mid-Summer Classic. The band discovered Robert on Youtube and subsequently ask him to be their new lead singer. The MSC released their album “Goodtimes and Goodbyes”
in 2011. The following year, The MSC was chosen from amongst 22,000 bands to play the "Vans Warped Tour Battle Of The Bands." Robert's former band was also featured in national magazines such as Alternative Press and Substream Music Press and their song “Our Time" was featured on MTV's "The Real World”. The MSC released EP "Euphoria" in 2013 which was much more alternative than their previously released music. The band toured twice across the US before disbanding in 2013.
Some of Robert's musical influences are Queen, 30 Seconds to Mars, Panic At The Disco, Sia, Lana Del Rey, Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, Nirvana, Coldplay, and Muse.
