Hi everyone - welcome to my website! Some exciting news first of all:
My band - the fabulous "FAIREST AND BEST" are getting ready to record our first EP - a sophomore release to my solo debut "Storm in a Teacup". We hit the studio in mid February and hope to have it released soon after.
We like to say we are the most eclectic (and odd-looking!) band in Canada!
We are a real "music lovers" band - delving into ALL ORIGINAL pop/rock/soul/jazz/blues/country/Latin/reggae/and even power ballads!
Here's a link to our Electronic Press Kit:
If you are an longtime supporter of mine or a new fan of the band you can help support the making of our new EP by becoming a "patron of the arts", or in this case a "patron of Robert Graham and the Fairest and Best!" We have launched a campaign where you can donate (any) amount per song (and there are only 3 songs!) and in return receive awesome rewards like first look MP3's, advanced signed CD's, t-shirts, even a private concert in your home! If you would like to become one of our patrons please check out our campaign page here (any amount is welcome!):
Also - brand new "FAIREST AND BEST" t-shirts have just arrived! They feature a great shot of the band by photographer Grant Cockburn and are available by contacting me at the "contact" link above. These awesome shirts go for $15 plus postage so snap one up at the "Store" tab above!
Speaking of the band - we are more shows in March in Toronto after we come out of hibernation from recording our first EP. Check out the "gigs" tab above for more details! The bands website is www.thefairestandbest.com
AND NOW WITHOUT FURTHER ADO......
Welcome again to my website! My name is Robert Graham - I am a Toronto based Canadian/Australian pianist and singer/songwriter. I am also a Music Director, accompanist (vocal, instrumental and dance), pianist, vocal/repertoire coach, entertainer, and educator.
There are several things to explore here so here is a general roadmap for you!
You can hear my songs by clicking on the HAVE A LISTEN! sidebar on the right.

You can buy my songs and other merchandise at the STORE tab above.

STORM IN A TEACUP - THE ALBUM
My debut album "STORM IN A TEACUP", was well received by critics and punters alike - you can find out more about it at the tab above called "My debut album - "Storm in a Teacup"
2. MY THEATRE CAREER
If you want to learn more about my career in the Theatre as an Music Director, vocal/repertoire coach, pianist, dance accompanist and accompanist please click on the relevant tabs on top of the page. My general resume is available at the RESUME tab and my Theatre specific resume is available at the MUSIC DIRECTOR tab.
3. "THE ENTERTAINER"
As well as being a songwriter I also know thousands of other people's songs - from Beethoven to ZZ Top! If you are interested in hiring me to perform in your establishment or at your event please check out the ENTERTAINER tag above. There is video there of me performing a medley of just a few of the songs in my extensive song list - plus a video of what I can do as a solo pianist without vocals. A sample song list is also provided.
A recent song I wrote called "YOU ARE WELCOME HERE" is available to download! All proceeds from the download go to the "We are Jose" campaign to raise funds for the legal defence of Jose Figueroa - a Salvadoran refugee facing deportation from Canada for his non-violent opposition to the right-wing military dictatorship in EL Salvador in the 1908s. He has been forced into sanctuary in a Langley church in an effort to avoid deportation. This is a cause very dear to my heart and I would loved your support.
You can download the song here: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/robertgraham3
A fundraising concert will be held on March 16th to raise money for Jose's legal fees - it will feature several of Toronto's best singers (and me on piano!). Please check out the "Gigs" tab above for more information.
More information about Jose can be found at http://www.wearejose.org Please support this important cause!
AT THE MOVIES!
I am excited to report that various songs from my debut album "Storm in a Teacup" have been picked up to be part of two feature films! The Canadian film "Clean Break" has already been shown in various parts of the world - picking up an award from the Atlanta Horror Film Festival. The other is a unique Australian film - a wrestling, horror, zombie film (yes that IS a genre...now) called "From Parts Unknown - Fight Like a Girl", which made its debut in January 2015.
TAKE ME HOME!
Yes, you can get a FREE download of of any of my songs by clicking the "HEAR AND DOWNLOAD MY MUSIC" link above. But.......
