ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Robbie Greig (songwriter, guitarist, vocalist) cut his musical teeth in the Melbourne coffeehouse scene in the '70s, performing his originals at such venues as The Outpost Inn, The Commune, The Green Man, One C One and The Troubadour. In the '80s he hit the pub circuit with his own brand of rock-reggae, fronting the bands Spiritz and Paleface. In the '90s he developed a unique acoustic-based rock sound, and with his band The Sanctuary continued to make an impact at music festivals around Australia with his high-quality original material. In the Naughties, Robbie fronted a jazz-roots combo called The Wayfarers which featured prominent Melbourne musicians Howard Cairns (bass), Dene Ford (guitar) and Michael Jordan (drums). Robbie’s latest release, which features several of Robbie’s long time musical cohorts, is Marked Man, 2015.

Robbie’s work has been recognised by the Australia Council, the Australian Songwriters Association, Eltham Arts Council, Leader Newspapers and 3RRR, which have all awarded him grants and prizes. His song Al Saunders’ Garage has been an ABC Radio staple, and his Wurundjeri Sorry Song played frequently on 3CR and Koori stations around Victoria. He has collaborated with Andy Baylor, Joe Camilleri, David Gulpilil, Bobby Bununggur, Kavisha Mazzella, Kutcha Edwards, Stephen Cummings, Neil Murray, Melanie Shanahan and Hugh McDonald, amongst others, and has had his compositions used in films, theatre and dance productions. He has recorded 11 albums of original material, ranging from folk to reggae to jazz-rock to blues, and featured on several compilation CDs.

Robbie’s music combines the storytelling style of the troubadour with infectious roots and jazz-based stylings. His material is consistently rich in lyric and groove and served up by some of Melbourne’s finest jazz/blues exponents. He has been described as a ‘maker of music, maker of magic’ by the Melbourne Times, and as ‘the Bob Dylan of the Melbourne Hills’ by 3RRR presenter Rick E Vengeance.
