Born in Stirling, Scotland, as the only child of two musical parents, Robert Gillies began playing music at the age of 4 but didn't truly find his passion within music until 16 years later, when a tumultuous event led to the awakening of a songwriter and a floodgate of songs.
Now, 4 years later, Gillies is firmly entrenched in a life of music. Having spent several years traveling, serving as a volunteer in various positions around the world, and sharing his musical journey with those around him, he is now studying at Berklee College of Music. Before studying at Berklee, Gillies had shared his music at venues in Japan, Canada, the U.S., and the U.K., to much praise from peers and elders alike.
What is it they hear in his music? Perhaps it is a sincerity driven by an earnest search for the positive in life, the desire to connect to those around him, and a certain sensitivity behind the well-crafted lyrics and solid musicianship. It can certainly be said that Gilllies is well on his way to somewhere special.
