Robert Graham - BIO

Robert Graham has always been both a fan and creator of "hooky" music.

Growing up both in British Columbia and Western Australia, from an early age Graham divided his time equally between honing his skills as a piano player and attempting to learn every song on the radio!

Lessons on what makes a catchy song came right out of his radio for free and he learned a lot about the ingredients needed for a song to really have impact.

Now he has released his OWN album.

Together with producer CHRIS BROWN (Bourbon Tabernacle Choir, Kate Fenner, DJ Logic, Tragically Hip), Graham has released "STORM IN A TEACUP", a wickedly eclectic album of songs which has been described as "ingenious, sophisticated pop music with more twists and turns then your average Agatha Christie thriller"

In Graham's music you can hear echoes of David Bowie, the Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, ELO, Van Halen, the Cars, Manu Chao, Billy Joel, Joe Jackson, Ray Charles, Ben Folds, and Gary Numan, just to name a lot!.

The album is an engaging mix of hook-laden pop, rock, blues and dance tracks with guest appearances by NYC heavyweights TEDDY KUMPEL (Rickie Lee Jones, Trent Reznor), ANTON FIER (Herbie Hancock, the Lounge Lizards), ROB JOST (Tony Scherr Trio, Ursa Minor), and TONY SCHERR (Bill Frisell, Norah Jones), with cameos from ERIC SCHENKMAN (Spin Doctors) and FORD PIER (DOA, the Rheostatics), not to mention Kingston Ontario's own Eli and John Abrams of the fabulous ABRAMS BROTHERS.

Graham has worked as a professional pianist, accompanist, vocalist, music director, and played with many multi-genre bands on two continents. He has toured the UK twice with Canadian roots supergroup "Tanglefoot" (Winner - Best Vocal Group - 2007 Canadian Folk Music Awards) and performed with Australia's "Los Chasquis" and the "Michael George Band" (Kingston Ontario)

He has appeared in opening slots for such diverse acts as the Leahy, David Wilcox, Natalie McMaster, KellyLee Evans, Shooglenifty, and the Cowboy Junkies.

Robert Graham has lived in British Columbia, Perth Australia and now lives in Eastern Ontario.
