Robert Kerley hails from the American Southwest where he grew up with an appreciation for diverse cultures, food, and music. He has played in ensembles across several genres, including reggae, rock, big band, ska, hot club, and exotica. As a composer he is interested in contemporary chamber music, music for games and media, and electro/electro-acoustic. 

Beginning his musical studies in elementary school orchestra, Robert has focused on jazz piano, and more recently swing and musette accordion. He has studied theory and composition at the College of Santa Fe (Santa Fe University of Art and Design) and the University of Kansas. He has released an electro album under the name of Silostrator, and participated in the 2019 RPM challenge to create and album of new material in 30 days, culminating in a collection of chanson-jazzy-punk-folk music.  

Robert currently resides in Denver, Colorado, and is the accordionist and primary arranger for the Hot Breakfast Club.  He is working on sketches for a subterranean electro-exotica project, and is interested in collaborating with artists in game, visual arts, and media, as well as composing for ensembles.
