Hailing from Graignamanagh in Co Kilkenny, Robert Grace releases his debut EP ‘Talk To Me’ on May 12th.
This EP may be Robert’s debut solo release, however, this all rounder from the lovely Graignamahagh is no stranger to the studio, or the charts.
In recent years Robert has developed into a songwriter/producer/performer of note. Robert wrote three and co-produced four tracks on Hometown’s recent chart topping album released on Sony Music. He has also co-written with some of the best-known songwriters in the UK including:
Dan McDougall (The Wanted, The Shires)
Blair MacKichan (Paloma Faith/Sia/Lily Allen)
Phil Thornalley (Natalie Imbruglia/Pixie Lott)
Josh Wilkinson (One Direction / 5 seconds of Summer)
David Munday (Tina Turner/Pixie Lott/Belinda Carlisle)
The lead track, ‘Talk To Me’ is a perfect summer welcomer track to lull to in our current sunshine. The super catchy intro & title EP track will have you tapping your fingers in time, before you realize.
Robert grew up in a house immersed by traditional Irish music; his father plays in well-known local trad band ‘Keltic Cats’. Before long Robert was learning the guitar and wrote his first song aged 12. By aged 18 Robert had won a number of national & International songwriting awards including the Glinsk International Songwriting Award.
