Robert New is modern musician at the fore of modern technology. Using the most modern instruments and visually appealing stage gear, he's creating music for a modern generation.
Playing the worlds most advance instruments from WERSI live in the stage, he's had a rollercoaster relationship with music from elation to hatred and back again.
"I started my journey into music at 11 years old when my parents me if I'd like to learn to play an instrument. Of course I did! It was a veyr exciting time. My love of pop music and orchestral music was allowed to develop and through years of practice and tutition, I'm lucky to be where I am today." said Robert.
He added; "In my early years and late teenage years, I was forced into difficult decisions regarding music. Some I regret, some I was well advised on and some I was too stuborn to see the benefits of. But it's all of these things combined that have created the artist I am today.
I've always loved the recording studio. I feel more at home there than on the stage. I think it's the freedom to create something that will be enjoyed by others is hugely satisfying.
With live performances, I love them, but there's a heavy responsibility to ensure that it is as perfect as it can be. This is no easy task and I think many musicians, including myself worry too much about just enjoying the performance. It's something that I've learnt to do in the past few years. The warmth of the audience of course gives you a great feeling that can't be described easilly.
Using the high tech WERSI equipment and gear in the recording studio as well as live on stage is also very satisfying for both myself as the artist, and for my audiences. It is with this in mind that I plan for the coming years to fuse my studio work with the live performance aspect of being an artist and convey this to my audience in a way that is interesting and fresh. Many people think that an organ is an old fashioned instrument for churches and cinemas only. Although it is not my intention to be apart of the movement to show the world that these wonderful machines from WERSI are infact digital orchestras and much more, I'm keenly aware that we are all dogged by this stigma.
I just want to make the music that I love and that it will keep bringing enjoyment to those listening to it."
