Hailing from London, The Robbie Boyd Band release the latest single 'When I Believe' from their well-received debut EP 'Autumn's Flown' on August 27th 2012 through Tawny Owl Records.
The counterpart video shows Robbie performing on a street in London on his acoustic guitar amongst some rather enthusiastic fans both young and old who are dancing and taking snaps on their cameras and mobiles. Although this catchy folk pop track could be described as a ballad, it still has an optimistic sound made obvious by the look of their ardent audience.
The Robbie Boyd Band gained recognition pretty much straight from the off. The release of their EP prompted a sold out launch show in London's The Borderline. It was also massively supported by several presenters on BBC Radio 2 not to mention Absolute Radio, 6 Music, Q Radio and others. As well as supporting the likes of The Kooks, Delays and Johnny Flynn, they have also headlined their own show at Trafalgar Square resulting in several massive festival bookings around the UK and in Europe such as the Peninsula Festival in Greenwich during the London 2012 Olympic Games, the Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire and Kiel's Duckstein Festival in Germany.
