Miles Robertson's quiet revolution

Although he's not as visible as his compatriots Rihanna, Shontelle or Hal Linton, musician Miles Robertson has been quietly making his mark as the backing keyboardist for British sensation and Grammy Award winner, Adele.

Robertson, who is a producer, engineer, drummer, violinist and musical director, has been performing with Adele since September 2008. He has appeared on popular TV shows such as Saturday Night Live, the View, Dancing With The Stars, as well as at the Grammy Awards with Sugarland.

His breakthrough to the international music stage came in 2005 when he toured as a backing musician for Atlantic Record's soca artiste Rupee. Rupee, who is also Barbadian, is known for his hits Tempted To Touch, which featured on the soundtrack for the Brett Ratner film After the Sunset.
