Hailing from the small town of Innisfail in Far North Queensland, award-winning singer/songwriter Robert Cini’s deeply melodic songs infusing multiple genres accompany a truly unique aura on stage and ability to capture audiences and passes by with his astonishingly powerful soulful voice.
Fresh from the long-awaited release of his debut album ‘Imaginary Fun’, Robert embarks on a new beginning after overcoming serious health issues including Thyroid cancer along the way to making the album. But just like his long life battle with a Vision impairment nothing can stand in his way! The album testifies to a new authentically raw-earthy sound showcasing Robert’s prodigious song craft.
It follows the success of his self-titled EP which included Australian Songwriting Award winning song ‘Haven’t You Noticed’. Robert performed the song live in Sydney at the ASA Awards and like his new singles ‘Time Machine’, and ‘Different Road’ receive regular airplay rotation on radio in Queensland, interstate and overseas.
He’s been a top 5 finalist/nominee in other major Australian song competitions such as the ‘MusicOz Awards’ and the ‘Glenn Shorrock Music Scholarship Award’. His music was recognised amongst thousands of artists from around the country by Australian music legend Glenn Shorrock ('The Little River Band') who was quoted talking about Cini '"Great voice, engaging commercial sound, fabulous".. Robert performed along with the other finalists, The Little River Band, and James Reyne at Lyndoch Uncorked Festival in the Barossa Valley. He’s also supported Kim Churchill, The Acoustic Guitar Spectacular and recently played Tanks Uplate after the Hoodoo Gurus.
A live film clip of his song ‘Running’ was featured as an Editor’s choice on Balcony TV New York late last year racking up 19k+ views. More international recognition has come about with Finalist spots and Honourable mentions in 'The Billboard World Song Contest’, 'We Are Listening' (Nashville), and 'The UK Songwriting Contest’.
You can find Robert playing festivals and events all over North Queensland.
