Robert G is a Maltese singer (real name Robert Galea - born 5 May 1979) who first appeared as a solo artist on the local music scene in 2012.
Robert G started his music career playing with a garage band in his teen years. He eventually moved to broadcasting, most notably hosting Xalata Rock on One Radio, as well as a stint doing the breakfast show and drive-time slot on the same radio station.
In 1993, he replaced the lead singer who had been singing with some English musician friends to form the band Mainaxe, which lasted for about a year. After various live performances with this band he joined The Axe and eventually Different Minds. After a couple of years of all this, Robert had enough of being in bands and moved to England. He eventually he returned to music recording a called I Can Change. He has also gigged the club circuit in China.

He has also gigged the club circuit in China. Following the positive response generated by Robert G’s debut single Only On His Way, the singer has now teamed up with Toby, who has produced a dance remix of the tune, reworking it completely and realigning its melodic co-ordinates for the club scene.
The song, which was penned by Ray Mercieca of Characters and Rifffs fame and released earlier this summer, is a flowing melodic number that was not only warmly received, but also gave its singer a vital first step back into the local music scene that he once formed part of as a member of rock band Different Minds. Despite his being a relatively new name on the local scene, music has been a part of Robert G’s life for a long time, starting from early garage band forays in his teen years to a long-running residency hosting various music shows (among them Xalata Rock, on a national radio station) to gigging the club circuit in China.
Robert is also a keyboard player with X-Tend.
