I heard a great song and a great voice coming from my studio one day. I went inside, and found one of my engineers working with an Artist named Robert Mackey. I think it’s just a matter of time before he’s discovered by the rest of the world.

Mackey is a gifted talent, creating original music from his heart that touches the human spirit. He will be known as THE composer for the new Millennium.
— Robert J. Buhl President The Film Group, Inc. USA
The production value is excellent...this is music made to be heard by the masses...The “It’s Tonight” CD picks up where Foreigner, Survivor, and The Alan Parsons Project left off and puts it straight into the new Millennium. This is big arena rock with the emphasis on Big! I predict major success for AVM!
— Robert Crane President - Red Dog Music Group, Inc. USA
Robert Mackey is a very talented man. AVM is a very good AOR Band that captures influences of Kansas, Foreigner, Survivor, Roadmaster and even Pink Floyd...without any doubt, the songs “Tired Of Telling You” and “Don’t Take No Chances” are really incredible Pomprock gems that simply can’t be ignored by fans of this lost genre. I haven’t heard a band playing this kind of rock music for a long time!
— Gabor Kleinbloesem Editor of STRUTTER'ZINE Holland, The Netherlands
I think every song has hit potential...Robert is a very talented singer/songwriter with captivating enthusiasm.

Superb songwriting and production... a lot of bands take a shot at the brass ring, Robert Mackey and his band AVM have grabbed it!
— Paul Pollard Songwriter-recording engineer THE RECORDING WORKSHOP USA School for the Recording Arts
Solid musicianship and retro but keen songwriting...Mackey has a voice reminiscent of Foreigner’s Lou Gramm and you can feel the influences of Peter Gabriel, King Krimson and even Steely Dan.
