Robert stated, I’ve been writing songs for most of my life. While raising my children and supporting my family, I’ve been fortunate to have had a number of commercial recordings by other artists singing my songs from all over the world.
While working in the advertising field, I’ve had the opportunity to write and produce a number of national radio and TV jingles, working closely with many top musicians, producers and other songwriters throughout the U.S. and Canada.
And, after all these years, I finally made my first album, IT’S ALL ABOUT THE LOVE, produced by the incredibly talented Fernando Perdomo at Reseda Ranch Studios in California.
