Toronto-based Canadian/Australian musician Robert Graham is an award-winning pianist and singer/songwriter, as well as a Music Director, accompanist (vocal, instrumental and dance), choir director, vocal/repertoire coach, entertainer, educator, and social justice activist. Robert writes for and performs with his six-piece band "The Fairest and Best".

Growing up in Gibsons, British Columbia and Perth, Western Australia Robert graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor of Music Education. A very short teaching career ensued - which came to an end when Robert decided - at the age of 25 - that high school teaching was not for him.

Since then Robert has been on an amazing and beautiful rollercoaster of a musical journey. Together with his songwriting and performing, Robert has been Music Director on numerous Theatre productions across Canada and Australia - most recently "Seeking Refuge" at the 2017 Toronto Fringe Festival.

His musical collaborations have also included several multi-genre bands and ensembles - touring the UK with Canadian roots supergroup "Tanglefoot" (Winner - Best Vocal Group - 2007 Canadian Folk Music Awards) and performing with Australia's "Los Chasquis".

Robert started his songwriting career relatively late in life - but music from his debut solo album "Storm in a Teacup" and the debut EP from his Toronto band "The Fairest and Best" elicited three all-network sync licensing contracts (The Discovery Channel, Fox Sports and The NASCAR Network) as well as contracts from thirteen individual shows - including I Am Cait, The Real World, Bad Girls Club, Total Divas and three Kardashian shows - none of which Robert has ever watched!

It was also added to the playlists of over 100 radio stations across North America. Two songs garnered runner up placements (in two categories) of the 2015 Dallas Songwriters Association Song Contest, as well as a semifinal placement in the 2016 "Song Of The Year" contest.

For a taste of Robert's songwriting listen here to The Fairest and Best's debut EP - "When I Feel Like This":

 

Here is the first video from the EP - "One Little Sign" and some live rehearsal and performance footage - featuring Robert's soon-to-be released single "Celebrity".

 

 

In 2016, together with The Fairest and Best, Robert released a new single and video called "It Could Be You".  All proceeds from the sale of the song go to the International Red Cross for their work with refugees worldwide. The song placed 4th overall in the 2016 Dallas Songwriters Association Song Contest and was also featured at a Multicultural Conversations Project forum held on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia.
