De­but al­bum and UK tour for rockin’ Robbi

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Ian Bunt­ing

Teenage singing star Robbi McFaulds has given his fans the per­fect Christ­mas present by an­nounc­ing the com­ple­tion of his muchan­tic­i­pated de­but al­bum – and a UK tour.

The Air­drie mu­si­cian will launch his first EP on Fe­bru­ary 6 next year be­fore em­bark­ing on a 24-date run of shows across Bri­tain just days later.

Robbi, 16, has been work­ing on the five-track al­bum for much of the year and can­not wait to share the mu­sic with his fans. He told the Ticket: “The al­bum is done and dusted and will be launched at an event in Glas­gow’s Queen Mar­garet Union on Fe­bru­ary 6, when I will per­form ev­ery track, as well as some cover songs.

“I have still to com­pletely de­cide on a ti­tle for the EP, but at the mo­ment it looks like I will be go­ing with ‘The Morn­ing Af­ter’.

“The tracks are all pop songs and the al­bum will be re­leased on­line on Fe­bru­ary 6, with hard copies also on sale at the launch event. I may release sin­gles from the al­bum af­ter the lat­ter has had some time to shine.

“It’s been a long time com­ing but I am really happy with the fin­ished al­bum and would like to thank the amaz­ing guys at Rocket Science Stu­dios in Glas­gow for their help in putting it to­gether.”

There won’t be any rest for Robbi fol­low­ing the big al­bum launch, though, as a few days later the New Col­lege La­nark­shire mu­sic stu­dent hits the road for his first Bri­tish tour.

Robbi said: “There will only be five or six days be­tween the launch and the start of the tour so it will be hec­tic.

“I have got 24 gigs in to­tal, tak­ing in venues across Scot­land and the likes of Lon­don, Liver­pool and Bris­tol.

“Go­ing off on tour is some­thing that I’ve al­ways wanted to do and I can­not wait. It’s all a bit sur­real though and I keep pinch­ing my­self.

“It will be good for my fans to see me per­form at lots of dif­fer­ent venues across Bri­tain, with a big­ger band, so I’m look­ing for­ward to shar­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence with them.”

Robbi is also hop­ing for a help­ing hand from lo­cal busi­nesses to sup­port his in­au­gu­ral tour.

He ex­plained: “I am al­ready be­ing spon­sored on tour by Ex­cel Vend­ing, who have been ab­so­lutely bril­liant.

“But I am still look­ing for other spon­sors and any com­pa­nies in­ter­ested in link­ing up for the tour dates would be more than wel­come.”
