Robert Mehmet Sinan Ikiz

Robert Mehmet Sinan Ikiz was born in 1979 in Istanbul, Turkey. Ikiz's interest in music and drums started at the age of 2, accompanying Tchaikovsky symphonies on pots and pans in his grandmother's apartment in Istanbul. Ikiz moved to Stockholm, Sweden in 1982 as a 3 year-old. In elementary school he played with Straight Ahead, a band formed by the eminent guitarist Lars Dohlon. During 1991-1996 the band toured and played concerts and festivals in Sweden. Straight Ahead played mostly the music of Jimi Hendrix so it is no coincidence that Mitch Mitchell is one of Ikiz's heroes on the drums.

Ikiz studied at the Stockholm Music Conservatory between 1995-1998 in the Afro-American music program. In 1998 he won the annual competition there and received a scholarship to study at the Los Angeles Music Academy....
