Born in Accra as Robin-Huws Barnes, Robin-Huws (pronounced Robin Hews) is an alternative soul artist who is passionate about music and plans to take the world by storm with his versatility, sultry vocals and profound lyrics to give you something to think about and stir up hidden emotions.
Robin-Huws had his talent from childhood but realised he wanted to become an artiste when he was nine years old. Since it was taboo to say he wanted to become a musician, Robin-Huws had to teach himself the rudiments of music and artistry by emulating more established musicians. During that process, he was advised to learn the guitar since it was likely to help him get better at his craft. Once again due to the innate tune in his mind, with no or very little tutoring, Robin learnt to play the guitar.
He takes his inspiration from God since he describes himself as a spiritual person as well as situations in his life (past, present and future) and life in general. People around him (friends, family) also inspire him.
Though very versatile, his music can be described as soul/alternative soul/neo soul/contemporary soul.
Robin-Huws is on a mission to shape minds through his unique musical talent. He intends to be a leading alternative artiste in the world in the coming years, drawing the attention of the globe to his creative sound which he hopes to use to share his thoughts.
