Biography

Robert "Southernman Robbie" Zsugya (born in January 21, 1987) is a Romanian musician, singer and songwriter, who can be seen performing on the blues stages. He brings the roots of the country blues 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 performed in blues festival, blues stages and he've been part of many musical projects.
In 2012 he decided to get the road to the west, where he joins 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 the Northern Germany.

With all the experience gained in his journey, he came back home to preach the blues today, for all the bluesy souls.

In 2016 on the last day of February (29) was released his first album, called "Devil got my name", which has 14 acoustic blues songs. Southernman Robbie throughout his album, offers you a very good kept secret from the Deep South Danube wildness, as an oasis of acoustic blues for souls.
