Robert was a guest on Dublin Daoine this week, chatting to Larry Skynt about forming his live band, experimenting with EDM producers, and his plans following the release of the "Real Good Fight" Remix EP.
Robert caught up with Emma Mages of UK pop blog Essentially Pop recently to talk about the process behind his "Real Good Fight" remix single, his hopes to make a live record, plus the things he'd change about the music industry.
LGBTQ Music Chart critic Ephram St. Cloud has had his say on the Skynem GT Remix of "Real Good Fight", and it's another positive review!
"I got the chance to take a listen to "Real Good Fight" (Skynem GT Remix), and you really got a great treat waiting for you later this August. It’s catchy and tropical with a touch of Irish charm and very addictive! Looking forward to listen to the whole remix EP in the end of August".
The recently announced Skynem GT Remix of "Real Good Fight" has received its first review from music blog Pop, Rinse, Repeat, and it couldn't be better!
"It takes skill and a mastery of your instrument to not overshadow the original work and Skynem GT has done just that. It's a much easier interpretation to the track all the while building and swelling into a hopeful anthem that just makes you feel good. Music has a way of reaching those parts of you that you didn't know you needed to be touched until it happens and Robert is doing a damn good job at that".
UK music blog Essentially Pop has written a glowing review of "Real Good Fight".
"The song hits hard for those who see themselves stuck in a rut and not feeling truly happy with where they are in life. With its highly relatable yet inspirational lyrics, O’Connor describes perfectly what it feels like to not feel satisfied with the path that you’re on and changing direction to something that makes you happy.".
"Real Good Fight" has received a glowing review from music blog Pop, Rinse, Repeat.
"You can hear that he does this because there's no where else he'd want to be and nothing better that he'd rather be doing. He's not doing it because it's going to bring him fame and fortune, he does it because it's part of who he is. I wasn't familiar with Robert before this video but I've stepped back through his other works and it's just honest songwriting and the world needs a whole lot more of that".
UK music blog Essentially Pop has given "River" a favourable review!
"His voice is pure and soft, and moving – if this song doesn’t bring a tear to your eye, especially at this time of year when we’re all thinking of what we’ve achieved and what lays ahead, then I’m not sure what will!"
