Bio

Gold Coast Music Song of the Year finalist, Rhea Robertson is an alternative pop singer/songwriter. Her music captures audiences with a fusion of melodies that linger in the listener mind, dreamy jazz undertones, poignant lyrics and dreamy alt-pop sounds. She offers hints of influences by Lana Del Rey, Stevie Nicks and Kate Miller-Heidke.

With songs charting on triple J unearthed and 4ZZZ, Rhea has also had airplay with commercials stations 91.7ABC, 102.9 Hot Tomato, 105.7 Radio metro.

Rhea spent a month in LA recording for a new project launching later this year. Writing and recording with Luke Calleja (DJ Kronic), Sean Katrowitz (album guitarist for Ruel, Kelly Clarkson), Phil Simmons (Jessie J Music director). She also embarked on a ghost writing career, working across many genres including soul, RnB, pop, electronic etc working with songwriting legends from across the world. She is set to return to LA in September for more writing opportunities and finalising her unreleased project.

Rhea played the Bleach Festival during Festival 2018, was support for touring bands All Our Exes Live in Texas as well as Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird. Since releasing a “reimagined” version of Destiny’s Child ‘Lose my Breath’, Rhea has catapulted to a new level, with over 38,000 spotify streams.

Rhea has been pursuing the music scene from a young age, starting out as a pint sized busker. Landing her first gigs in 2005, Rhea quickly became a regular face in the Gold Coast Music Scene. 2014 saw Rhea complete an 15 stop European music tour, off the back of her first EP release. Throughout her musical growth, Rhea has continued to be independent.

How did we get past this beauty! There are some really lovely elements to this. The innocence and emotional tenderness in your vocals are sweet and charming. Can't wait to hear more from you xx

RHEA continues to bounce from strength to strength, crafting engaging music, with yet another smooth, sun-dappled, lovelorn synth-pop jewel.
