Robert Desmond Band

Robert Desmond Band is an ongoing project  of independent and self-sufficient singer/songwriter/recording engineer from Toronto/Canada.
Our project's ultimate goals are international recognition and touring .
The band’s music is best described as an indie/alternative rock based radio/user friendly , with just enough power pop for the liking..
You can get some good ideas about the project's music and sound by watching our Official Video Promo Collage below:


Robert Desmond is the project's lead singer, and musician, as well as its principal songwriter, lyricist, producer, arranger, recording / mixing engineer, videographer, and photographer. Seems like he is the jack of all trades. Well, he truly is! Robert produces and edits all his material at his home based studio, both audio and video, all at modern broadcast quality standards level.

Boris is the second key person of the project.
In short – he is Robert’s partner who takes care of the project’s “office”. He plays the drums, sings backing vocals, and contributes as a musical and band director. He is also involved in music arranging, and production of the band, yet most of the time as sub-arranger/ sub-producer and on-site adviser.

Alex is a very talented 7 string lead guitar player. He is our newest addition to the lineup. His impecable musicianship brings the band to a higher level and compliments the sound.

Yuri is the core of the band's foundation. He plays 4 & 5 string electric basses and sings back vocals too.
Rock Solid Bottom – what else needs to be said ?!
