The Songs In My Head: Heartland Edition

Hey guys,

Guess what! It's just FIVE DAYS until Heartland is available in all the internet places! If you can't tell by the incessant posting, I'm pretty excited about it. I can't wait for you guys to hear what we've been working on for so long. 

"But", you might say, "I simply cannot wait any longer! I must have something to listen to now!" Well, you are understood. And you've come to the right place. To help get us ready for Friday,  I've put together a list of songs from artists that have been particularly impactful to me as I've worked on Heartland.

Some are old favorites. Some are old friends. Some are rather recent finds. All have come blaring through my 4Runner's speakers pretty consistently in the past two years. 

Honestly, I have never been this proud of a set of other people's songs. This is the stuff I love the most, and I hope you love it too. If nothing else, be sure to check out the tracks from Andrew Osenga, Andrew Peterson, and Matt Wright

So. That's it for now. If you'd like, you can click this link here and listen to the music I was listening to as I wrote and recorded the new album. Allow it to prepare you for the fun that awaits on Friday!

 

Cheers, 

Robby 

 

Heartland LP Coming March 17!

Hey guys,

Somewhat predictably, I have been less than consistent in my posting habits. But, in my defense,  life has been a bit on the busier side. I would go into it, but you are probably even less interested in reading about it than I am in writing about it. So, suffice it to say, I come to you at the end of a long, challenging but ultimately satisfying journey. In terms of the Harry Potter series, we're closing in on the Battle of Hogwarts.

Oh, and the record is finished! 

That's right. You may have been thinking to yourself, "Self, is Robby ever actually going to release an album or is this all just some giant exercise in futility?" Well, I am happy to say that I am actually going to release said album. Furthermore, I am going to release it soon - on Friday, March 17th to be exact. Yes, that IS less than two weeks from now. 

Though it has indeed taken some time, I could not be happier with the record we've made. Thanks to the musical magic of my best bud and producer extraordinaire Mark Campbell, these songs have come to life in a way I never dreamed possible. I am very proud of Heartland, and I am very excited to share it with you.

Alright. That's it for now. Thanks for taking some time out of your day to hang out here at this internet location. 

Keep your eyes peeled for updates in the coming days! I'll be throwing a few more things your way as we gear up for the release next week...

Cheers,

Robby  

 

P.S. The singles 'Heartland' and 'Help Me If You Can' are available now wherever you download/stream music. If you haven't yet, go give em a listen!

The (New) Songs In My Head

Hey guys, 

 Welcome to August! We made it eight months into 2016, which is impressive because the world is sort of going insane right now! To celebrate, I offer this:

 

August, you nostalgic time of back-to-school commercials and football games. You remind us of the leaves that will soon change, the sweaters that will soon be worn, the extra profit that will soon be made by Starbucks everywhere. Indeed, you stir up all the lovely feelings of Fall. And so I walk out my door and into to your glorious embrace, and I remember that it is hot and terrible outside because I live in the South. 

 

Yes, we have now come to what I like think of as the enchanting prelude to the masterpiece of Autumn. And though it is quite uncomfortably warm outside, I find my thoughts are taken with the season soon to come. 

In that spirit, I offer a new batch of Songs In My Head. These songs, often poignant but bracing, have helped to sate my cravings for chillier days. They have also served as the soundtrack for my morning drive and the backdrop to cheery evenings with friends. I hope they will be so kind to you. 

Oh, and while we're here, let me briefly explain the manner in which this sweet playlist child of mine shall continue to exist.  Each month, I will introduce you to a new and totally different set of Songs In My Head. Look for it around the start of the month. If you already follow the playlist, then you're good to go. When you open it up, you'll find it's already been reset. If you don't follow the playlist, let me gently nudge you to click here and live a little.

"But," you might perhaps say, "I actually kind of liked the old Songs In My Head playlist! Though I am mildly intrigued by this new set of songs, I am sad to see the others go. This is hardly responsible playlist management, Robby." 

Indeed.

Happily, there is no need to say farewell to those playlists to which you've grown accustomed to listening. You will find the old sets of songs available on my Spotify profile. If there is a certain playlist that you found particularly enjoyable, you can continue to follow it and rest assured that it shall remain perfectly preserved in its original state. Don't believe me?  The Songs In My Head - July is ready and waiting. 

Alright. Well, that about covers it. Thanks for clicking the link you saw and reading these words I wrote. Have a good day and a great August.

Cheers,

Robby  

The Songs In My Head

Hey guys, 

Thanks for being here. And congratulations for making it safely through all the twists and turns of the internet! There's some big news coming down the pipe in the next few weeks. We are getting very close to having some new music for you to listen to with your ears. I am very excited. 

But a few weeks from now is still a few weeks away. And I do really love sharing music. So, in the meantime, I decided to share other people's music. If you go to here, you will find a playlist of the songs that are currently pouring forth from the open windows of my 4runner. I like these songs. I think you might like them too. If you're into it, go ahead and follow the playlist! I'll edit it as new songs come on and off my radar.

That's all for today. I hope you enjoy listening to what I enjoy listening to! 

Cheers, 

Robby 

Welcome!

Hey guys, 

Welcome to this website that exists now! It's been a while - a long while actually. In the past few years, I've signed and unsigned a record deal, moved states, and gotten married. And, significantly, Samwise the Brave has entered my life.

But over the past few years, I've also been working on some songs that I'm very excited about. And that's why I've called you all here today. 

In the near future, I will be releasing some new music! As I said, these songs are very close to my heart, and I'm pretty jazzed to share them with you. 

This site that you are currently visiting will be the best place to check back for updates on this new music. While you wait, you can listen to some old tunes as well or find something in the store for you or your grandma.  And if you REALLY want to stay in the know, you can head on over to the contact page and subscribe to our mailing list. I would love to tastefully enter the world of your email inbox with an appropriate level of frequency.

That's it for now. Thanks for hanging out. Let's talk soon. 

 

Cheers, 

Robby
