Questions and Answers

Something went wrong, please try again soon.

What is your musical background and wedding experience?

I started singing professionally in weddings when I was 12 years old. Since then, I’ve sung regularly in many types of weddings, both in ceremonies and receptions. I am Catholic and therefore very familiar with the Catholic wedding service; I’ve sung for many religious weddings and am comfortable leading the congregation in parts of the service that are sung. For religious weddings that are held in a church, I typically work with a pianist/organist who accompanies me. I’m equally at home playing weddings that are more secular in nature, as well as receptions. 

I have a master’s degree in Vocal Performance from the top vocal school in the USA: the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. I studied opera and classical art song, but I also have extensive experience singing pop, rock, and musical theater. I have performed in many of the most prominent venues in Los Angeles, both with a band and as a solo artist.     

What is your musical style?

I am a bit of a chameleon. For weddings that are more formal/traditional/religious, I usually employ more of my classical training. In this style, my singing is often compared to Josh Groban’s. Actually, there is a recording on my Soundcloud of me performing a Josh Groban song “To Where You Are.” Listening to that will give you a good idea of what I mean!

When performing during a reception, I often play/sing music that is more contemporary pop. In this context, I’m often compared to Ed Sheeran, Jason Mraz, and Justin Timberlake. The bottom line: I’m happy to talk to couples about their musical preferences and adapt accordingly. 

Do you learn song requests?

Absolutely! In the past, I’ve even “reworked” the lyrics of a song completely to fit the story of the wedding couple. I’m happy to learn new music that is special to the bride and groom. 

Do you provide your own sound equipment?

Yes. I have my own PA system that provides excellent sound quality and sound dispersion. My system works beautifully for smaller and medium-sized venues. For large venues, I work with a sound rental company to ensure I have what I need.

Are you willing to travel?

Yes again. Depending on the distance, my rate may change. Talk to me, and we can figure it out!

If you’re interested, please contact me. I like to call all of my prospective clients and have a brief friendly chat about their wedding plans. After I have a good idea of their needs, I can put together a quote.

We came across Robert Rothko and enquired about covering a few songs (John Legend - All of me, Ed Sheeran - Photograph and Amy Shark - Adore) for our ceremony and entertainment music during the canape for our guests. We knew right away that Robert was the right choice for our Big Day due to his professionalism and the sample of one of the covers confirmed that. Thank you Robert for delivering what you promised and making the whole process effortless, it really added to our special day!!

Robert Rothko really made our wedding extra special. He helped select the most suitable songs and delivered them extremely beautifully. The wedding ceremony took place at the Victorian Marriage Registry which was very busy that day. Regardless of the time constraints, Robert's singing made the ceremony more than just a signing ceremony. He sang "Perfect", "All of Me" , and "I am Yours", better than the original. His voice was so beautiful and powerful, making the atmosphere romantic and joyful. We are truly grateful and fortunate to have Robert sing at our wedding. Robert Rothko is more than an awesome singer and artist. He's also a professional, We highly recommend his service.

Robert was professional yet personable. We had a stress free experience dealing with him as he knew exactly what to do on the day. He also does a one on one meeting prior to discuss your requirements, He has his own equipment which made it easy to set up at the venue. He was also prompt with arrival and we did not have to worry whether he was running late. Robert's vocals are smooth and he sings beautifully. HIs sound was perfect for an intimate ceremony like ours. He also sings a variety of songs from different eras so is versatile. Would highly recommend him for any wedding. Thank you for making our day extra special Robert!
