Debut album and UK tour for rockin’ Robbi
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.”
