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!"
Caesar Live 'N' Loud continues to support Robert's work this year with an article about his new single "River".
Speaking to the music site, Robert said: For many years I’ve thought about recording this song - and last Christmas when I was planning my comeback I decided, if the first two singles were well-received, I’d finally do it".
He added: "When I went into the studio to record it, the most important thing was that it wasn’t going to sound like a karaoke cover where I copied every element of the original. There’s enough versions out there with acrobatic vocals and piano, it was time for an alternative approach!"
Music critic Paul Reynolds has given "River" a positive review on his iconic blog MyFizzyPop.
"He's taken the song back to its architectural blueprints and re-built it in a bold, evocative new way. It is a daring take on the classic song and one that pays off, leaving you with your own thoughts and reminiscing as the music fades away".
