JOE ROBINSON

Joe Robinson

Joe Robinson plays guitar like Ali boxed like Einstein knew theoretical physics, and like Hitchcock made movies. From the backwoods of Temagog, New South Wales - Australia, he possesses the sheer six-string ability and compositional insight, which has already earned him a worldwide following. That fact is underscored by his winning 1st prize in Australia's Got Talent in 2008 and the Australian National Songwriting Competition at 13. Robinson continues to take quantum leaps in his songwriting and performance skills. The gifted young virtuoso has redefined himself as a budding pop-world visionary, deftly walking a tightrope between the stellar instrumental music that's put him in the spotlight and a unique fusion of vocally based rock, blues, jazz, country, and R&B that's entirely his own. Performance art at its very best! Type your paragraph here.

Brooks Robinson

He just doesn't need much more than two thumbs, eight fingers and six strings on a wooden box to carry his listeners away. The protege of Buster B. Jones, Brooks Robertson wowed guitar fans around the world even as a child. At age 14 he appeared on Garrison Keillor's "A Prairie Home Companion", where he won first place in a talent competition for 12-20 year olds. In 2010 he won 1st place in the country category and 2nd place overall in the "Yamaha Six String Theory Guitar Competition" in Los Angeles. In 2012 Brooks received the Horizon Award for young, up and coming guitarists by The National Thumbpickers Hall of Fame, and was recently voted Portland, Oregon's "Best Emerging Artist" by Deli Magazine. Still in his early 20s, Brooks continues perfecting his craft learning new tunes, styles and techniques, as well as composing his own groovy and soulful original music. Hailed by prominent exponents of his instrument like Nokie Edwards, Thom Bresh, John Jorgenson and Mason Williams, the young fingerstyle guitarist embodies the creative vision of a postmodern world: It's the music that counts. Brooks utilizes his superb technical abilities to play bass, rhythm and melody simultaneously and surpass the borders of conventional genres. He merges hauntingly beautiful compositions, country rhythms and jazzy harmonies with funky licks into his very own art form – sometimes delivered with a punch, sometimes with a smile.
