Dublin born singer & songwriter Roberta Howett has a musical background grounded in classical training with The Royal Academy of Music. She first appeared on our screens in 2004, when she reached the live finals of the X-Factor, and was championed by Sharon Osbourne. With the X-Factor complete, she moved to London permanently and began writing music.
In 2008 Roberta put out a taster to radio called Shadows which gained radio play across Irish national radio stations. In 2010, she decided to release her debut single Beautiful Lies independently which entered the Irish Charts at number 23, and download charts at number 20.
Roberta is a featured artist with Momo, www.tonicastells.com, with whom she has toured throughout Europe, and also features on Bressie’s album Colourblind Stereo, which was released in 2011 and went to number 1 in Ireland. As a backing vocalist, Roberta sings with Nathan Carter, who has had three number 1 albums in Ireland, Beth Ditto (previously with ‘Gossip’) and with new band Boyzlife, with Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy. Roberta has also sung for Billy Ocean, KT Tunstall, The Shires, Sharon Corr and Ronan Keating, including live performances at Oxegen and Glastonbury Festivals, and various television shows. She has performed as lead vocalist with many bands over the years, one of which was the house band on RTE’s prime time Saturday night television show ‘Tonight with Craig Doyle‘.
In 2012, Roberta and 3 other girls, Jessica, Aimee and Anara, formed the singing group FanFair. The group first began performing at major Rugby Union games, including performances to a sold out Twickenham stadium, and went on to tour with The Wanted on their sell out arena tour ‘The Code’, throughout the UK and Ireland. Fanfair became brand ambassadors for Collection make up, and their single ‘Mission’ was featured on Collection make up‘s television advert, in which the girls starred. They travelled throughout Europe and recorded with hit producers Arnthor Birgisson and Cutfather.
Roberta continues to write and release her own music independently now, along with collaborations with DJs throughout the world, and also sings with a variety of established artists as a backing vocalist.
