Robert Dobbs is a singer/songwriter and musician who is fluent in both Spanish and English. In addition to playing guitar and piano, Robert also produces, and can mix and and master his own music.

Robert’s  music can be described as a mixture of alternative pop/rock with cinematic elements. When asked, Robert answers “I guess it can be described as epic pop LOL…” He also loves retro 90s music which is apparent in his soon to be released songs “Welcome To Your Imagination” and “Mask”.

When Robert was 6, his uncle Ian observed that Robert was very adept at playing video games. Ian, a gifted musician in his own right, gave Robert a piano in the hopes that his young nephew would spend his time doing something “more productive”. His uncle’s hunch paid off and Robert attributes his career in music to his uncle’s generosity and foresight. Robert also began competing in school singing competitions at the age of 10 and picked up the guitar at age 13.

Also at the age of 13,  Robert became keyboardist and lead singer in his first band called Lowen, an alternative/power metal band in Chihuahua, Mexico. In 2005 he joined pop/rock band Pulso. In 2011, after a brief stint pursuing a degree in Mechatronics Engineering and Communications in college, Robert left school after being discovered on Youtube and subsequently ask by Layfayette, Louisiana based pop/rock band The Mid-Summer Classic to be their new lead singer. Soon after, The MSC released their album “Goodtimes and Goodbyes" and in 2012, The MSC was chosen from amongst 22,000 bands to play the “Vans Warped Tour Battle Of The Bands.” His former band was also featured in national magazines such as Alternative Press and Substream Music Press and their song “Our Time" was featured on MTV’s “The Real World”. The MSC released EP "Euphoria” in 2013 which was much more alternative than their previously released music. The band did several tours across the United States before disbanding in 2013.

As Robert embarks on his solo career, he is joined by former Pulso bandmate/guitarist JC Villareal and drummer Sammy Marquez.

Some of Robert’s musical influences are Queen, 30 Seconds to Mars, Panic At The Disco, Michael Jackson, Bon Jovi, Nirvana, Coldplay, and Muse.
