On March 13, Grounds and Sounds Café welcomes Robinson Treacher, a NYC acoustic singer/songwriter whose music spans folk/country/gospel/blues/rock/soul and more – often all in one passionate and gritty song. Robinson was recently featured by Acoustic Live, which said of him:
“The first time the voice of Robinson Treacher reached my ears, I knew the folk community had found something special. There will be comparisons to other great singers — David Gray and Van Morrison come to mind — but his approach to his material is unique. It doesn’t matter which song in his repertoire he sings. Like a tent revival shouter, rooted in gospel and blues — a mix of silk and gravel — the sound is coming from a core somewhere deep … There’s a sense of something being reborn when he sings … In live performance, there’s an electric quality, a charge that stretches across the decades, back to the thrill of first hearing certain ’60s folk rockers … At times, in his use of rapid strumming and powerful vocals, he seems like the second coming of Richie Havens … In case it needs restating, we’re really pumped about Robinson Treacher. We hope you’ll join us in seeing him at every opportunity.”
