Hello and thanks for stopping by!  For the majority of my life, I’ve been creating music that I hope will entertain and inform you, the listener.  In fact,  I compose music from the point of view of the listener.    I simply imagine myself entering a hall where I take a front row seat and I ask myself: “Okay what do I want to hear?”  “Wow me, make me think, make me dance, take me places that I’ve never been before”
So let’s relax and take a journey to the many destinations that define the music of Robert Skiles.
