GLASGOW MUSIC TALENT ROBBI MCFAULDS GETS BIG BREAK WITH THE VODAFONE BIG TOP 40

GLASGOW MUSIC TALENT ROBBI MCFAULDS GETS BIG BREAK WITH THE VODAFONE BIG TOP 40

Glasgow talent and singer-songwriter Robbi McFaulds is celebrating after becoming the next Vodafone Future Breaker, giving the unsigned eighteen year old a fantastic platform to launch his budding music career. The Vodafone Future Breakers initiative, launched as part of the Vodafone Big Top 40 partnership with Global, has given Robbi the money-can’t-buy chance to record and produce his own single with industry professionals, as well as having the live session broadcast online with the Big Top 40.

Before his big break, Robbi, originally from Airdrie, began performing at a young age, working his way up through the pubs and clubs across Glasgow, before performing at larger venues as a support act and building his own fanbase. With inspiration from the likes of The 1975, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Ed Sheeran, McFaulds hopes this will be a stepping stone to something bigger and is planning his first EP release in the summer.

On his experience with Vodafone Future Breakers, Robbi commented; “This experience has been phenomenal, I absolutely love performing live but it’s been brilliant to be given the chance to record professionally and hear new music coming to life- that’s one of the best feelings as a musician. I finally feel like all the work I have put in is beginning to pay off.”

 Fronted by the Vodafone Big Top 40’s very own Marvin Humes, Vodafone Future Breakers is continuing the search for the very best unsigned talent from across the UK to uncover the next big thing in music.  Listeners, budding artists, DJs and band members can enter their tracks/videos through the dedicated hub where they could win a recording studio session with a top industry producer!
