Interview With Robert Shrigley Woolf


Have you always been interested in music? What is your story and how did you start making music?

I started writing in my twenties after writing poetry. Then I began fitting my lyrics alongside new melodies that often come to my mind. I would say it’s a natural gift being more of self-taught and I can write a whole song in minutes while conveying a complete message to my audience.

What are you working on now? Any future releases we can look forward to?

My next song is in the style of Chic, sortbofva funky dance beat with a message about a computer hacker.

What Is Your Ultimate Goal In The Music Industry?

To write hit songs. I’m more into creating rather than performing and I’m happy to get my songs aired on radio in the hope that greater signed artists can take on my songs.

What Has Been The Biggest Challenge In Your Career Thus Far?

I always challenge myself on making a hit and creating a song that would last as a classic.

How do you go about writing a song? Do you have a melody in your head and then write the other music for it or what’s Your typical songwriting process?

Sometimes I come up with a groove on my acoustic guitar and then I add words. Depending on the style and beats for a particular message to convey in a song. I like disguising a serious message behind a commercial beat. I like to test the awareness of listeners to see if they notice a message in a dancevtune or rock song. At other times I may just get a sound in my head

How do you feel the Internet has impacted the music business?

A lot cause I’ve noticed more open doors and more freedom of expression for independent artists.

List some famous musicians currently on your playlist?

I’m not the kind that would stick to only one genre as I am inspired by a variety of cultures.

Some artists that inspire me are David Bowie, Pink Floyd, Motown, Bob Marley, Stevie Wonder, and George Michael. I’m eclectic in my influences as I like most genres but I’m more attracted to songs with a deeper meaning.

What Did You Do Before You Started Making Music?


Would you have any advice for young people wanting to follow in your footsteps?

Be honest with yourself and don’t sell yourself out to these large music companies. Don’t let them mold you into their demands. Stay independent

If you could change anything about the music industry, what would it be?

I would encourage upcoming musicians to write more meaningful songs especially love song. Secondly, I’m advocating for the fact that there should be more freedom of expression.

How do you feel about originality?

I am totally in support of originality

Is there anything else we should know about you? or Something that you would like to add?
