A striking collision of slick blues and uplifting retro hues, virtuosic guitarist Robbie Bostock is today releasing his new single via the jubilant instrumental journey that is Cryptic Love. Showcasing Robbie’s burgeoning craftsmanship and dazzling delivery, Cryptic Love also offers a glimpse into the Gold Coast artist’s upcoming EP Explorations, due out on Friday May 12, with local fans able to catch Robbie live in action across a number of shows this May at one of Australia’s largest free music festivals: Blues on Broadbeach.
WE GOT TO HAVE A CHAT TO ROBBIE ABOUT HIS FAVOURITE ARTISTS >>
Phil & Tommy Emmanuel – Anyone that knows me knows that I’am massively influenced by the Emmanuel brothers especially Phil, I was hooked on his guitar playing style and tone right from the first time I saw him perform when I was 9 years old. When they performed together it was something extra special, it was like they could read each other’s minds musically.
AC/DC – The power and energy of this band is just incredible! It always puts me in a good mood when I hear some AC/DC
The Beach Boys – I love their harmonies and songwriting. Growing up my brother must’ve had every Beach Boys cassette ever made so when I hear them now it really reminds me of my childhood.
The 1975 – I think these guys are such a fantastic band. That first record that they put out in 2013 is so good, I think I’ve listened to that album thousands of times. I love their songwriting and 80’s influence.
Steve Earle – I never get sick of listening to Steve Earle’s music. He is such a great story teller and I love the guitar work on the ‘Guitar Town’ record.
