Robert P Birthisel - 20 tracks

I played drums & sang professionally over 20 years, ranging from Rock to Country to Funk/R&B. My music has been featured on FOX TV (Call Me Kat, 2021), as well as on various CD compilations and International podcasts in the UK, USA, Europe, mainland Asia and Australia. My songs concentrate on melody, harmonies & unexpected chord and timing changes to keep them unique. Vocally, I've been compared at times to David Crosby, John Mayer, Todd Rundgren, Lionel Richie, Charlie Puth and George Strait, reflecting my versatile influences and history. Still a proud Classic Rocker at heart, I own 100% administrative control and decision-making on all tracks and masters, including instrumental versions and edits. All songs recorded at Grammy & Dove Award winning GAT3 Studios in Charlotte NC, with the assistance of world-class studio players and engineers.
