Robbi Niles returns with poignant new single "Melody", a reflective track about dealing with loss.
Barbados-born Robbi Niles is an R&B artist with huge potential. Having made a name for himself through an ability to captivate audiences, his new single “Melody” reminds us of his capabilities as a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter.
Robbi’s music career started earlier than most after his debut single “Wonder” was released when he was just sixteen years old. He has been honing his craft ever since and it’s evident he draws on a variety of genres during his songwriting.
Packed with emotion, Robbi’s latest release is atmospheric and draws together layers of airy synth, deep bass and a punching beat. The result: an atmospheric soundscape that is reminiscent of artists like The Weeknd. Robbi has described “Melody” as “a reflective piece”. Working with veteran songwriter Sonia Leigh and producer Terrance Lam, Robbi worked to encapsulate his “emotional state of mind” while “trying to cope with grief”. His past tracks have racked up hundreds of thousands of streams and over 800,000 video views, allowing him to travel from Barbados to LA, to London, and Toronto. This sensitive and honest exploration of loss is a must listen.
