Robbie McDonald (Music & Lyrics)
Robbie McDonald (Music Director) With nods to Damien Rice, Hedwig, Sondheim and Black Sabbath, singer-songwriter Robbie McDonald pens torchy pop gems on piano, guitar, banjo and ukulele. A Los Angeles native, Robbie cut his teeth in indie rock bands on the Sunset Strip but his years spent in Ireland defined him as a songwriter with his critically acclaimed Mighty Quiet. Since returning to the states, Robbie has worn hats as club promoter (Fabaret!, Party of Four), talent booker, chat show host (Afternoon Delight), actor (Othello at ZJU, Frida at TU) and journalist. Robbie’s a regular on LA’s performance circuit at such venues as The Broome Room, Planet Queer, GayDD, Montalban, Highways and the Hotel Café. EP due out in January. www.robbiemcdonald.com.
