Robbie Boyd graduated from the Professional Diploma in Songwriting and has continued with his work ethic of getting involved with as much as he can, displayed in abundance during his studies at the ICMP. Last year he won the ‘alternative’ category of ‘Live and Unsigned’, the largest competition in the UK for unsigned artists, beating 10,000 other entrants and was announced as the winner of the London busking competition. 2012 will see him play the ‘Tour Fest’ festival in Rome, building on a fantastic festival presence during 2011 playing Standon Calling, Nozstock festival, Lubstock festival, Get Loaded in the Park and Beach Break Live. 

Sir Tim Rice is listed as a fan of Robbie after playing his song ‘Oh Alaska’ on his Radio 2 show referring to Robbie as a “very talented new singer/ songwriter with the ability to create original songs without losing the commercial touch”.
