Robert has toured extensively in the UK as a support for artists including Jenn Bostic, Sarah Darling, Nell Bryden and Bob Fox. In June 2017 he completed a joint headline tour with Nashville based singer Kyshona Armstong. Since April 2016 he has embarked on five tours of Germany and in 2018 will visit Holland and Scandinavia for the first time.
Robert was chosen by the LG Arena to perform in the Forum Live area of the arena before concerts by Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, Ellie Goulding and John Mayer. In July 2015 he once again performed at the newly re-branded Genting Arena before a concert by Fleetwood Mac. In August 2013 he was selected to attend a song writing retreat/course with Kinks front man Ray Davies.
Robert Lane attended my songwriting course at Dartington in 2013. Robert responded well to composition and exercises given. As the course became more intensive his progress was excellent throughout. I am pleased to recommend Robert to continue his music and develop his writing so that he can reach his full potential Ray Davies songwriter and frontman of The Kinks
