Face the World
From the lush surrounds of Australia's NSW north coast Robert Keith has emerged as a significant singer/songwriter with the release of his debut solo album, Face The World. Recorded in Brisbane under the guidance of respected producer, Michael Flanders, the album features twelve original tracks showcasing the diverse nature of Rob's vocal ability and songwriting talent. A contemporary country album, the songs have broad appeal with everyday themes about life and love which strike a chord with a wider audience. The first single, A Cowboy Never Cries, was released to radio on November, 2004 and has been well received both in Australia and overseas. Robert grew up in Sydney, Australia where his early musical influences included Billy Joel, Crowded House and The Beatles. After discovering artists like Keith Urban, James Blundell, Garth Brooks and Graeme Connors Robert was drawn to the genre and began writing and performing country music. With a genuine passion for modern country and a natural inclination for melody and harmony the result is an album full of songs that stay in your head and a diversity that holds the listener's interest from the first track to the last. Two further singles have since been released to radio and video clips for A Cowboy Never Cries and This Time Love have appeared regularly on Australia's Country Music Channel through pay-TV provider Foxtel/Austar. As a performer, Robert has gained a reputation as a quality entertainer for his ability to connect with his audience and captivate them with his smooth, expressive vocal style and charismatic stage presence. He is an accomplished guitarist and keyboard player and coupled with his distinctive voice, good looks, and endearing personality offers a refreshing alternative in today's country music scene.
