Catching Up with Robert Burchell

Almost six months into his newly founded career, musician turned singer Robert Burchell has been able to make a soft impact on the local music industry.  The single 'Never Judge a Book" off his D├ębut album 'Agape' has been making radio waves locally while the video rotates on cable and mainstream television.

Robert Burchell has been in Jamaica for over three months promoting his music. His intent is to network with other reggae artistes and create a distinct buzz. Although he's not prepared to say the numbers, sales are encouraging for a first time album of a 6 month old singing career.  That said, the Chicago base singer/musician is about to release another single called 'Welcome to Jamaica' also off the album.  'Welcome to Jamaica' is self explanatory, Robert got the inspiration to create the track from personally being involved in providing hospitality for visitors to Jamaica at his Mountain Top Villas in Mandeville.  
Robert and Sizzla 

Robert Burchell has been a musician almost all his life.  He plays several instruments and is
Robert and Warrior King
very good at playing the guitar.  He has been moving in and around a circle of friends that include artistes such as Luciano, Anthony Cruz, Sizzla Kolanji and Warrior King and hopefully, "I might just do a collaboration with one of them" he said smiling, "anything can gwaan u just have to wait and see."  


Robert's album 'Agape' is his introduction to the music industry as an artiste.  The variety of tracks on the album represents his interest as well as outline the direction in which he intends to go. Robert Burchell is spontaneous and eager to try new things.  He's a successful entrepreneur, loving father and well respected brother in church, "the half has not yet been told, spending some time here at home has really open my mind to so many things and I have already decided what I'm gonna do and how i'm gonna go about doing it, you will see" he said and we certainly look forward to it.
