Hard work and talent
They say that no matter where you travel, you’ll find a Bajan – and last year that would have included on stage at the Royal Albert Hall when Miles Robertson played keyboards for British sensation (and big-time Grammy winner) Adele.
In the above video Miles talks about his career and how he ended up becoming Adele’s music director and keyboardist. You can see Miles on stage throughout the DVD ‘Adele – Live at the Royal Albert Hall’
So here’s another highly successful Barbadian that we’ve never seen featured on the CBC or showcased by the Barbados Tourism Authority. Yamaha seems to think enough of Miles Robertson that they signed him to a worldwide advertising campaign for Yamaha keyboards, but hey… maybe the BTA blew the entire budget on Rihanna.
The Yamaha campaign mentions that Miles is a Barbadian and talks about his musical family, Caribbean jazz and a host of wonderful little facts that make his story interesting. Why is the Barbados Tourism Authority never able to move quickly to capitalise on current events? When Adele took SIX Grammys in one evening and won in every category in which she was eligible – that is BIG NEWS that ties in with Barbados.
Maybe we at BFP missed it, but at the moment Miles Robertson with his Adele connection sure looks like another opportunity missed by the BTA at a time when our country needs all the positive vibes and publicity we can get.
Wake UP CBC and show a few Adele and Miles Robertson videos on TV8!
You can start with this one of Adele and Miles on stage at the Royal Albert Hall…
