Rob Milton Born in Hackensack, New Jersey and residing in Richmond, Virginia since his adolescence, singer/songwriter and journalist Rob Milton creates inspirational R&B with influences ranging from golden-age N.Y.C. hip-hop and early-2000s neo-soul to electronic funk and jazz. His inventively produced tracks often feature grainy post-J Dilla textures that verge on chillwave, over which his smooth, soulful vocals sing unabashedly optimistic lyrics. Milton comes from a church background, and while gospel is a formative influence, his lyrics generally refrain from referring to specific religious subjects, instead focusing on universal themes such as love and positivity. Beginning with 2012’s Love Today, Milton has issued a steady stream of online EPs and singles documenting his progress, highlights of which were compiled on the 2014 CD Songs from the Internet. His debut full-length, Rebirth, arrived in June of 2015.
A young creative with one foot in both sides of the industry, Rob Milton is a music journalist and indie soul singer who has managed to make a name for himself through releasing an abundance of quality music and serving as a contributing blogger for SoulBounce and Virgin.com. His passion and presentation have allowed him opportunities such as performing on stage at Washington, DC’s Howard Theatre, New York City’s famed SOB’s venue, recording at Converse’s Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn, New York, and receiving press nods from MTV UK, OkayPlayer, AfroPunk, Solange’s Saint Heron, SoulBounce, and Ebony Magazine. His music can also be heard in Black And Sexy TV’s Rider web series and Centric’s Being.
