Welcome to the website of musician, singer, and songwriter Robert Graham! 

Who is Robert Graham? 

"Robert is a brilliant musician. It’s not just that he plays well or that he’s a skilled and gifted writer. It’s his intuition and prescience with a piece of music that first got my attention. As an accompanist, he is spot on, but as a collaborator, he is to be trusted unreservedly. He is also a gifted educator, a beloved choir director, bandleader... (George Masswohl - “Come From Away”, Toronto)

Robert's Musical Journey

Growing up in Gibsons, British Columbia, and Perth, Western Australia Robert graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor of Music Education. A very short teaching career ensued - which came to an end when Robert decided, at the age of 25, that high school teaching was not for him.

Since then Robert has been on an amazing and beautiful rollercoaster of a musical journey. Together with his songwriting and performing, (both solo and with his bands), Robert has been Musical  Director on numerous Theatre productions and concerts across Canada and Australia, and is in high demand as a pianist and vocalist across the genres in venues throughout the Perth area and regionally. 

His musical collaborations have also included several multi-genre bands and ensembles - including two UK tours with Canadian roots supergroup and (Canadian Folk Music award winners) "Tanglefoot", Australia's Chilean group Los Chasquis, his own Toronto band The Fairest and Best, and legendary Australian Aboriginal band YABU. He also works with the West Australian Opera Company, and is currently featured in the Duelling Pianos series in venues across Perth, as well as with his group Robert Graham and The Landing.

Music from Robert's his debut solo album "Storm in a Teacup" and the debut EP from The Fairest and Best elicited three all-network sync licensing contracts (The Discovery Channel, Fox Sports and The NASCAR Network) as well as contracts from thirteen individual TV shows - including I Am Cait, The Real World, Bad Girls Club, Total Divas and three Kardashian shows - none of which Robert has ever watched! It was also added to the playlists of over 100 radio stations across North America. His 2022 album “The Line” has been similarly well received, earning him two semi-finalist positions in the 2023 UK Songwriting Contest and the 2022 Dallas Songwriters Association Song Contest. His songs have also garnered awards from the Billboard World Song Contest, and the "Songs for Social Change" contest - among others. 

Robert was the inaugural winner of the 2018 Douglas C Cowling Bursary in Liturgical Music and was also awarded a 2019 Toronto Artscape Foundation Launchpad Bursary.
