About Rob Green

ROB.GREEN is an independent soul/pop artist from Nottingham who draws from the R&B, Soul, Indie, Rock and Gospel music he was raised on to inspire the music he makes. The singer and songwriter made his recording debut in 2012 with his debut EP Parlour Tricks, he released two more EP’s, the latest of which (ROB.GREEN EP) debuted at number #34 and #3 in the iTunes Album and R&B chart respectively. Rob draws great inspiration from his life growing up as mixed-race and gay in his hometown to write songs, unite and connect with audiences. He has won international critical acclaim for the innovative, continuous shot music video for Blue – the ROB.GREEN EP’s debut single, which featured Game of Thrones star Joe Dempsie as a love interest that has turned sour, currently with over 44k streams.

An irrepressible and captivating live performer Rob has performed across the UK and Europe. Usually only armed with his loop pedal, acoustic guitar and signature soulful vocal; Rob has opened Arena shows for internationally acclaimed soul and pop acts, such as Earth Wind & Fire, Eric Bibb Alexander O’Neal and Whitney Houston Hologram Tour. In addition to over 150 live shows in the last three years alone; Rob’s last three singles have performed well on radio: BELIEF which immediately gained the attention of BBC Introducing’s Dean Jackson. Receiving plays from Tom Robinson (BBC 6MUSIC) and Huw Stephens (BBC Radio 1) within one week of each other, his single LIFE GOES ON was featured on the BBC 6Music’s Loud and Proud LGBTQ+ Playlist in 2021 after releasing his music video for the single, which was made during lockdown conditions using footage submitted by over 300 fans in quarantine. Over the last year he released three singles recorded in lockdown; ‘Talking To My Demons’, ‘Sleeping On My Own’ and ‘Let You Go’. All tracks have been featured on BBC Introducing and been featured as Track of the Week – titled the ‘Freedom’ series – these singles candidly explore identity, sexuality and mental wellbeing.
