“Dress”, a track from Robinson’s 2012 release Intentions, was produced by Copeland’s Aaron Marsh at The Vanguard Room and has already garnered great success for it’s music video. It’s a hauntingly beautiful ballad, dark and somehow charmingly hopeful.

You can catch the song track tonight on MTV’s AWKWARD, airing at 10pm PST tonight on MTV. Robinson had this to say when asked for an explanation behind the track:

When I was 13 I had a terrifying dream in which I sat on the shore of an empty beach and watched a beautiful bride swim in the ocean-eventually she tired and the weight of her beautiful, long, ornate dress is what caused her to be pulled under to drown. Years later while writing “Intentions” in 2011 I was reminded of this nightmare. The song is about love and loss and is based off of this hauntingly beautiful aesthetic.-Joshua Michael Robinson

About Joshua Michael Robinson:

“Having someone let me know that my song has impacted their being in a positive way gives me perspective and meaning…there is no greater feeling than to know that I provided for someone in a time of need…” – Joshua Michael Robinson

When asked about the songwriting behind his first full-length album, Intentions, Joshua Michael Robinson recognizes the creative mind’s ability to turn heartache into healing for both the artist and listener.

A Lakeland Florida native, 21-year-old singer/songwriter Joshua Michael Robinson remembers growing up with 8 brothers and sisters and how he developed an affinity for music and his family’s antique piano at an early age. “I grew up with a diverse love for music, from soulful singers like Ray LaMontagne and Ryan Adams to more edgy rock, especially Radiohead,” says Robinson. “Working with Aaron [Marsh] gave me the ability to take my varied influences and transcend the simplicity of a song, creating something I was never able to before.”

Produced by Aaron Marsh at The Vanguard Room, Intentions gracefully moves through experiences of restrained love, deep loss, and docile introspection. Intimate and delicate, Joshua’s voice is hushed against organic soundscapes. The debut is slated for release on August 21st.
