Grounds and Sounds is happy to welcome singer-songwriter and fingerstyle guitarist Robert Bruey to our stage on Friday, August 14, 2015. Robert grew up in rural New England, and now makes his home on Long Island’s North Fork. His roots are reflected in the original sound of his recently released CD, Carousel.
Robert Bruey’s music is honest and real, raw and meaningful, gritty and naturalistic and his live performances are moving and intimate. His deft, spare and unique finger-picking style – with notes carefully left alone to be heard in the moment – provides a perfect complement for his earthy and soulful voice and the meaningful, introspective lyrics of his songs. As a musical artist, he paints with words – imbuing his songs with imagery that enables listeners to visualize his stories as he sings them.
Although he cites such diverse artists as Dave Matthews, Van Morrison, Waylon Jennings, Jackson Browne and Damien Rice as influences, Robert Bruey is his own muse blazing his own musical path.
