Robert Baxter

Naarm/Melbourne-via-Yorta Yorta Country/Shepparton artist, producer and creative powerhouse artist Robert Baxter (he/she/they) has undergone a beautiful transformation from making beats in their rural hometown to performing at festivals across Naarm/Melbourne.

A true performer at heart from a young age, Baxter makes soft but mighty confessional pop that fizzes over with feeling, evoking the most iconic moments in an early 00s movie – viewed through a queer lens and refracted with the truth of their own experiences. With a wholly organic writing process that often involves “sitting at the piano and dumping my emotions out,” their creative practice is underpinned by a profound respect for artists who speak openly about topics that are seen by others as taboo.

They draw from their rich background as a dancer and actor – having appeared in music videos and ads for Tones and I, Spotify, Nike, BIRDZ (‘Place of Dreams’ ft. Ecca Vandal), Alex the Astronaut (‘I Think You’re Great’) and more – and as a model who recently walked Australian Fashion Week. They’re a member of the Naarm/Melbourne ballroom scene, and a director and stylist across all their music videos.

Baxter now steps into the spotlight to cement their own identity as a musician, something bolstered by their appointment as the face of youth music organisation The Push.

glossy and lush… The perfect soundtrack to escape and get lost in.
