Introducing: Robbie Mann
Robbie Mann is a singer, songwriter and musician and has been working as an arts-worker with the Creative Tracks team for the past year. He’s currently based in Rockhampton and works with the Woorabinda, Mt Isa and Palm Island communities.
Robbie has been performing as a Soloist and Backing Vocalist for the past six years. With performances ranging from community functions and events, to the Brisbane Festival 2011, to international performances in Vanuatu (2009) and Brazil (2010)!
In 2010 Robbie completed his Cert IV and Diploma in Music with the Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts (ACPA). During this time he was involved in a number of productions (Q150 and Beyond & Soul Man) both held at Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) under the direction of Leah Purcell and Stephen Helper.
Robbie finds his musical inspiration comes from life experiences and the everyday dealings of life. Also, he hopes that his music will lead to greater opportunities in the future.
With a style that is best described as a blend of modern with a soulful sound, Robbie endeavours to deliver an honest and entertaining performance each time.
