2018-2019

Hi all, I’ve decided to change the setup for my site. Every once in a while I will write stories about composing, teaching, playing the guitar, getting pedals etc, basically anything that’s on my mind and situations I run into being a musician. So, let’s do this thing.

Last week I had the pleasure to play some of my songs on Christmas Eve at Poppodium Grenswerk in Venlo. The evening was organized like a mass, but without the religious aspects. There were multiple speakers and musicians who all shared personal stories through words or music. It was really exciting to play a concert like this. I played “Turn Off The Lights” and “Rosy”.

I’ve also been busy with mixing and tracking some of the recordings I made last summer for my solo project and for Hireth. It’s not done yet, but because I want to share more music online here’s a snippet of “Rosy”: https://soundcloud.com/gsrobbert/robbert-suilen-rosy-snippet 

Hope to see and hear you guys soon!

ScratchJazz

Robbert was one of the coaches of ScratchJazz. An initiative to get young people to play music together. All students played one standard (from “The Great American Songbook”) and one pop tune that was arranged together with the band. On the 8th of October all bands played at Poppodium Grenswerk in Venlo as part of the ScratchJazz festival.
