â€œAs a child, I strummed the guitar unconsciously. As a young man, I endeavored to strum it consciously. Now, I strum the guitar as I did as a child---unconsciously.
That is to say, Ã¢â‚¬Ëœit plays itselfâ€ through me.
â€œIf someone throws a ball at you, you catch it. You walk into a dark room and without conscious thought, you turn on the light switch. Someone takes a swing at you,
and you side-step away from harm. You donâ€™t stop to think about it, Ã¢â‚¬Ëœitâ€™ just happens.
I play and compose on the guitar as it calls to me'"without conscious thought, yet being fully conscious all the time,â€ admits Robby Longley.
After hearing Robbyâ€™s orchestrated guitar music, categorization becomes irrelevant, thus breaking down known musical borders. He weaves a very distinctive
style indeed; it is a beautifully orchestrated fingerstyle fusion of world music in which Robby uses flamenco technique to produce guitar music that is not traditional flamenco. The listener will instantly discern that Robbyâ€™s approach is both heartfelt and seductive,
leading one on an emotionally filled journey. To date, Robby has produced eight CDs and presently completing this much awaited ninth.
In every generation there comes a musician who defines an era'"one who brings something unique to his musical style. At once it is clear that Robby Longley is
only a recording artist and guitar hero for aficionados, but also a live performer with great mainstream appeal whose capabilities reach the totality of fine musicianship.
