Irish pop newcomer Robert Grace releases “Fake Fine,” marking Robert’s first release with Sony Music Germany/RCA Records. Robert has the ability to write slices of cool heartfelt pop readymade for radio and his current single “Fake Fine” is no exception. Showcasing Robert’s skills as a songwriter and a performer in his own right, “Fake Fine” sums up the trials and tribulations of living in the current climate.
“The song is about pretending to be ok when you’re really not,” says Robert. “When everything is all an act. You might not even be in a bad situation but still, for some reason somethings not right and you’re trying to figure out what that something is.”
Robert has developed into a hugely in-demand songwriter, having co-written tracks with Dan McDougall, Blair MacKichan, and Josh Wilkinson. His previous track “Moving Fast” was track of the week on 2fm and his song “The Good Place” was added to the influential “Easy” playlist on Spotify. The Kilkenny singer-songwriter has performed at Ireland’s biggest festivals Electric Picnic & Indiependence, as well as co-writing with some of the most prestigious songwriters in the UK.
“Sounding like a cross between Lauv, Twenty One Pilots and blackbear, “Fake Fine’s” fun melody and tone offers an upbeat feel to the track’s thought-provoking lyrics about the trials and tribulations of living in the current climate. It’s readymade for radio play.” Record of the Day UK
“Robert is the Irish version of Troye Sivian and Lauv writing and producing slick commercial pop songs readymade for daytime radio” Eoghan McDermott, Presenter 2fm Breakfast Show
