Robb Appleton - a brief biography

Robb originally hails from Southend-on-Sea – the land of Dr Feelgood, The Kursaal Flyers, Eddie and The Hot Rods, to name a few.

It was these influences (and missing the last bus home from the sea front) that prompted him to buy his first harmonica, on which he developed his skills on the many long walks home.

He moved to Cambridge aged eighteen after completing a drama course, to take theatre to prisons and schools. Never letting go of his musical aspirations, Robb developed his harmonica playing beyond his Blues/R&B roots to create his own, very unique sound.

Harmonica is the instrument that he specialises in and he uses it both for session work and composing/recording. He also writes and records for music library and is passionate about films, short film, soundtrack and photography.

At the moment Robb is working on projects recording harmonica with organic and electronic sounds as well as providing his own vocals.

He is also working on a new project with Paula Welham on the Irish Low D Whistle as a duet with Harmonica.

He has completed writing and recording his first solo album ‘The Wood’.
