"US outfit showcase their debut album with this smooth and sweeping pop-rock delight, with hints of The 1975", says Mystic Sons on Social Robot's debut album available on all the digital things. Social Robot is the musical project of Bayard Russell. Bayard grew up in the suburbs of Indiana, influenced equally by The Beatles and Ice Cube. Classically trained in piano from age four, he discovered the guitar in high school and his passion for pop music blossomed. He moved to NYC after graduating from Dartmouth College with a major in philosophy and a minor in music. He has a solo album "Selftitled" available on CD Baby and iTunes, about which Neufutur Magazine has said, "All that individuals need to do is stick the album in and be placed on clouds of indie rock that will float them along for the better part of an hour."
