Tad Robinson


Tad Robinson could have easily fit into snugly using the blue-eyed spirit singers from the 1960s. His vocals practically reeking of spirit, he’s with the capacity of delving right into a straight-ahead Small Walter shuffle or providing an antique O.V. Wright R&B ballad. Add his songwriting abilities and remarkable harp technique and you also have quite the full total bundle. Robinson was raised in NEW YORK on a healthy diet plan of Stax, Motown, and Best 40, digging everyone from Otis Redding and Arthur Alexander to Eric Burdon and Joe Cocker. He matriculated at Indiana University’s college of music in 1980, fronting a good little combo privately known as the Hesitation Blues Music group that managed to get as much as Chicago occasionally (where he shortly relocated). Long reputed locally, his popularity outside the town limitations soared when he had taken over as vocalist with Dave Specter & the Bluebirds. Their 1994 Delmark disk, Blueplicity, was an uplifting relationship of Robinson’s soaring vocals and Specter’s delicious, jazz-laced acoustic guitar and presented the impressive Robinson-penned originals “What’s Your Angle,” “Dosage of Actuality,” and “Externally Searching In.” Delmark granted Tad Robinson his personal album later on that year. Someone to Infinity escorted him even more into spirit territory (guests for the arranged included Mighty Flyers guitarist Alex Schultz, the mystical Robert Ward, and Specter).
