Gordon Robertson is one of Scotland's finest and most versatile vocalists, with over 7 years experience as a performer at corporate events, weddings, parties, music venues, festivals and tribute nights. He is in high demand throughout the UK, having played over 70 gigs in the last 12 months, and he always impresses with his ability to entertain and involve an audience from the outset, regardless of the event or style of music.
His first main act is as a vocalist playing acoustic guitar, and performing a selection of hits and floor-fillers from the 50s right through to the present day chart ... toppers. This includes artists like Johnny Cash, The Beatles, Bryan Ferry, Stereophonics, The Killers, Oasis, Ed Sheeran, Kodaline, Bruno Mars, Stevie Wonder and many more. Some of these can also be accompanied by professional quality backing tracks to fill out the sound spectrum where appropriate, but the acoustic show is equally entertaining on it's own. This makes it a very adaptable show, to fit venues big and small, and suit parties of 10 or 200! Gordon specialises in his ability to capture the nuances of each of the large variety of vocal styles that he performs, and yet still leave a flavour of his own personality too. His long list of vocal training qualifications and years of experience perfecting his vocal technique allow him the versatility to sing a big hitting Rock ballad, and then follow that up with a soft and understated jazz standard, or a Motown hit. Most importantly, as a seasoned wedding band front-man, Gordon understands the set-list required to fill a dance floor and keep it that way.
The second act that Gordon provides is as one of the UK's most authentic Michael Bublé Tribute Artists. Unlike many other 'sung-only' tribute acts, Gordon really becomes Bublé for the duration of the performance, including all of the charisma, charm and chat that you'd expect to hear at one of the Canadian Crooner's arena shows, in his native Canadian accent. This always involves lots of audience interaction and participation, perfect for making a fuss of those celebrating an engagement, hen-do, birthday or anniversary! And of course, Gordon's ability to mimic Bublé's velvet voice, and produce the exciting vocals at the high end of the big-band numbers or the Pop tunes that Bublé writes really does allow audiences to suspend their disbelief and join Michael in having a blast at each and every gig.
Gordon also offers a non-tribute Cabaret show which is perfect for social clubs and hotel entertainment both in the UK and abroad, and also has experience providing a 'singing telegram' or 'singagram' service, specially learning songs to surprise that loved one in restaurants, bars, or basically anywhere!
Finally, at all gigs (except singing telegram), he offers a full professional quality PA system and lighting at no extra cost, with iPod/phone connectivity to play music chosen by clients for starts/ends/breaks. He can also for an extra fee provide a DJ service to accompany any of his acts and complete a night's entertainment.
For a performer who, whatever the act, whatever the event, will give the finest of vocal performances, and leave any crowd shouting for more, you really need look no further than Gordon Robertson.

‘A feel that reminds me of Bublé or Timberlake...taking wee influences from classic jazz and dancing them around modern crooner pop.’ Gordon Robertson is a Scottish singer/songwriter whose jazz-tinged contemporary pop is fast finding fans among connoisseurs who rightly see the connection between Tony Bennett and Jason Mraz, Ella Fitzgerald and Jack Johnson.
“We very much loved the smoothness and ease of his voice” - Jackie Jackson (The Jacksons) and Edele (B*Witched)
25 year old Gordon grew up in Edinburgh in a musical family and started his musical education early. Singing as ... a chorister from the age of 7, followed by stints in musical theatre, Gordon is also a proficient guitarist, pianist, ‘cellist and drummer. Gordon’s rich, warm tenor voice sets him apart from many of his contemporaries, equally at home delivering a stylish jazz standard, and a powerful, belted pop anthem. Also an accomplished songwriter, his song Vodka Lemon Lime won the OE International Song Competition in 2016 and his unreleased third single was a grand-finalist in LUM’s 2018 Songwriters’ Festival. Gordon performs regularly in clubs across the UK with his band, clocking over 100 performances in 2017 alone.
Gordon Robertson is set to release a string of singles with London-based production/management company The Animal Farm. His debut single ‘Vodka Lemon Lime’, is a charming earworm of a debut from a multi-talented young musician. It came out on July 27th. His second, due out on 7th December, ‘As The Batteries Run Dry’, has fairly big soul and jazz influences in places, and it certainly has a chilled vibe, but one you can also tap your feet to and remember instantly.
