At the crossroads of Blues, Folk and Americana lies Robinson Treacher. Whether it be in the studio or in live performance, Robinson’s emotionally dramatic songwriting style is matched only by his deeply passionate vocals. Steeped in what can only be labeled as a “traditional” songwriting format, Robinson has taken fibers from all genres. Including rock, country, R&B & folk, and woven them into a distinct tapestry, one that is clearly distinguishable among others in the singer/songwriter genre. Born and raised in New York, his honesty and grit reflect the eclectic musical influences that have shaped everything from from downstate New York City to the upstate Adirondacks. On the heels of his debut release, “Chrome”, Robinson released “Porches”, a purposefully “stripped down” collection of songs that rarely contains more than an acoustic guitar, an upright bass and of course those powerfully distinct vocals. With his most recent effort, “Born”, Robinson employs a slightly broader range of instrumentation while still maintaining the soulfully emotional “space” that has come to define his unique approach to songwriting.
Robinson has shared the stage with the likes of Iris Dement, G.E. Smith, Jorma Kaukonen and Vince Gill to name a few. He has been featured on Sirius/XM’s “The Loft: Live from The Living Room” series, has been a guest with John Platt on New York’s famed WFUV Radio and has recently been awarded Best Artist at Virginia’s largest Lyrics On The Lake Music Festival.. He has even been touted by legendary songwriter Don Schlitz (“Forever and Ever Amen”, “When You Say Nothing At All”, “The Gambler”) as being, “…impossible to follow in concert.” Recently, he has been nominated for a Nashville Music City Award for his song “This Bar” as well as for an NSAI/CMT country music People’s Choice Award and an Independent Music Award nomination for his song “Long Day Good Night” and is currently supporting his upcoming release “Born” with shows in NYC, Nashville, and all points in between. Lately, he has combined his talents with fellow award winning singer/songwriters Brad Cole and Matt Nakoa forming Cole, Nakoa and Treacher. With what Elmore Magazine has called, “Drop-dead harmonies”, they have begun to tour, supporting each other’s music as well as forging a new path together.
