Robert Power Premieres 'intro' Video


Robert Power is an Irish artist, writer, actor and songwriter. He has spent the last period of his life channelling all of his creative energy into writing and recording his debut album ‘1’. The product is brilliant, and has been received extremely well by both fans and industry. Robert has been featured in Record of the Day, he is about to support legendary Irish punk-poet Jinx Lennon at Imagine Arts Festival in Ireland and he also has his debut London show playing for The Boatshed on November 6th (Link below).

‘1’ features the prominent songs ‘Intro’ and ‘Outro’. They serve to contextualise the album, but stand alone as our favourite songs on the record. ‘1’ is a strong representation of Power’s lyrical depth and his ability to create warm and atmospheric sonic landscapes.

The Boatshed is extremely pleased to be the first to be able to show you the video Robert has made for ‘Intro’.

Speaking about the album Robert has said: "Intro and Outro were written towards the end of the making of 1, for different reasons. With Intro I wanted to put the album into context for the listener "I took some time to bring this to you" etc. The meanings are open to interpretation, especially the "I've been sold" line  - perhaps it's letting go of this work and waiting to see what happens with it and that maybe the devil has managed to convince me to "sell my soul" or at least share some of it, but for me it's also an optimistic lyric - I was hoping that someone might buy the album, which, thankfully, is happening."
