Robert Deeble (born 1966) is an American singer-songwriter originally from Long Beach, California, now based in Seattle.[1] His recordings have been noted for their orchestrated arrangements, a subtle, minimalist style of production, and lyrical content.[2] Robert's newest album, "Beloved," was released on March 30, 2018. His most recent single, "Pleasure to Burn," was released in May 2019 and was inspired by the novel Fahrenheit 451.


Robert's first album, "Days Like These," featured a duet with folk heroine Victoria Williams on the song Rockabye. Subsequent recordings included such music industry veterans as Rachel Blumberg of The Decemberists; Tomo Nakayama of Grand Hallway; cellist Melissa Hasin; vocalists Anna-Lynne Williams, Jen Wood, and Shenandoah Davis; and drummer Stephen Hodges (musician). Robert has toured throughout the US and New Zealand and has shared bills with Low (band), Ida (band), Songs:Ohia, Sam Phillips and Over the Rhine.[3][4]


Robert has released six full-length albums in 21 years. 2018's "Beloved" follows a six-year hiatus, as did the previous release, "Heart Like Feathers."[5][6]
