Bio: Robinson Treacher is a powerfully dramatic NYC acoustic singer/songwriter whose writing style, as well as his live performances, reflect the influence that classic soul and blues-based music has impressed upon him. His passion and emotional grit burst through every aspect of his music.
“Getting an advance listen of Robinson Treacher's new album, Porches, which includes "Good Mind to Keep You" that you all helped win our Unsigned and Wound Up podcast competition recently. Recently nominated for a CMT People's Choice Award, listening to Porches, his sophomore effort, you get the feeling Robinson, a NY native, could be destined for great things. Beginning with a foot stomping, hand-clapping African-American spiritual cover," Hopali", the chitlin and cornbread Southern scene is set, moving next to "Good Mind To Keep You" that has lyrics like " ain't got much rhythm but I sure do got them blues". Lady lows may have gone on to inspire slower, whispering tracks like "Can't Call You Again" which reminded me of Eric Clapton's " Tears in Heaven", " One More Soul" and Carly Simon to his James Taylor, Anna Perkins on "Gone Baby Gone". Identifying with the central themes of triumphs and defeats along love's dusty road , Porches drives home it truly is "all about the journey". ”
