Southernman Robbie, born Robert-Cristian ZSUGYA (January 21, 1987), is a Romanian musician, singer and songwriter. He brings the roots of the country blues music with an archaic image, playing consecrated songs of the blues pioneers, but also his own written music, combining slide guitar, finger picking, vocals and kazoo that will carry you to the land of southern blues.
Throughout the years he has performed at blues festivals, blues stages and has been part of many musical projects. In 2012 he decided to take the road to the west, where he joined the stage with blues pioneers from Austria. He spent almost a year in Northern Germany, where he preached the blues for shipyard workers from cities around northern Germany. With all the experience gained in his journey, he came back home to preach the blues, and, in 2016, on the last day of February (29), released his first album called "Devil Got My Name", which features 14 acoustic blues songs. Throughout the album he offers you a well kept secret from the Deep South Danube wilderness, as an oasis of acoustic blues for souls.
In April 2017 he participated as a contestant at the European Blues Challenge 2017 edition in Horsens, Denmark.
Marty's review: Southernman Robbie takes his blues straight out of the Mississippi Delta and puts his own little spin on it without straying far from the original roots. "Devil Got My Name" is an all acoustic affair with Robbie playing acoustic guitar, harmonica and kazoo. The tracks are a mixture of original numbers and covers of traditional blues like "Love In Vain" and "Sittin' On Top of the World". His vocal delivery is with a slight twang which more than suits his style of country blues. A talent worth discovering.
