Robert Delaney is a singer/songwriter with influences of blues, electro, alternative pop/rock and soul, with his first two solo albums 'Rising Tide' and 'Numbers' achieving critical acclaim and airplay in his native Ireland and the UK. Robert's music has featured regularly on popular Irish Television shows; ‘Don’t Tell The Bride’, ‘Fade Street’ and ‘Room To Improve’.
Infusing different styles of music, Robert crosses from 80s synth pop to gritty electronic to blues rock while staying true to his lyrical roots, with influences such as Cohen, Young, Waits and Van Morrison.
Much of 2020 has been spent on collaborations, the first of which, thSPIRAL, has borne the release of EP Mercury Falls, a blend of organic analogue synthetics and soulful grit.
Robert has also been working on a project with some extremely talented producers/artists from Ireland and the UK with an expected music release of autumn 2020. Exciting times!
