A classically trained trumpet player, composer and producer, Robert Burbidge is one of those rare talents that blurs the lines between classical and contemporary music.
After all, there can’t be many people who have played with a brass band at the Royal Albert Hall and played live with dance music legend Louie Vega from Masters at Work and alongside Can's Damo Suzuki during their career.
Having trained as a professional, trumpet, cornet, flugelhorn and piano player from the age of seven, Robert made his way into several orchestras and bands including the National Children’s Wind Orchestra
He instantly became a hit on the north of England’s club scene as he freestyled with his trumpet over DJ sets. He was such a success that he went on to play live alongside Grammy-award winner Louie Vega as well as the Utah Saints.
Robert has now moved on from the Rubberlips collaborative and launched his solo career as an independent composer, producer and music maker.
