Robert Swinton is a talented musician and recording artist of American Scottish heritage and lives in sunny Stuart, Florida. His lifelong musical journey started in the suburbs of Minneapolis at the young age of nine. Here he began seven years of classical guitar training and study under Phillip Velasco. Robert was interviewed by Sonya Swinton, national radio host and publisher of the Internet Celebrity Magazine and Radio Show.
Robert later moved to the San Francisco Bay area where he studied jazz guitar and music theory. While in San Francisco, he formed his own band Loose Change. This group soon became one of the hottest Southern Country Rock bands in the Bay area. After twelve years in California, Robert came east to Florida’s Treasure Coast. It was here that Robert was motivated to share the music he has loved through the years. The result is ‘The Soothing Sounds of the Classical Guitar’, a collection of personal favorites that Robert has performed live for many audiences.
