Robert Taira Wilson

I’m a singer-songwriter from London UK and I started playing the guitar when I was 7. For the last ten years I’ve been performing my music around the UK and Japan.

I find it hard to pigeonhole my music. I listen to such a wide mix of genres and I’m influenced by a lot of what I listen to. I actively try not to be folk, alternative, jazz, classical or world music. I try instead to take inspiration from all of these styles to create something new, something creative and personal. More importantly I believe that my journeys and experiences have inspired my music and songwriting most of all.

My new EP ‘Cold In The Heat’ was written and recorded in London between 2015 and 2017.

Cold In The Heat contains 6 brand new songs and features collaborations with several London based musicians. This record marks a significant shift in the style of my music with a greater focus on instrumentation and more complex arrangements with strings, double bass, percussion, backing vocals, harp and electric guitar. Prior to 2015 I’d been living in Japan for three years. I came back to London alone to pursue my music and the experience of living away from my family and friends greatly influenced my writing. The themes of isolation and separation feature heavily in the songs.
