I am an award-winning actor, writer and musician. I've written songs for E4, CBBC (BAFTA nominated show Officially Amazing), BBC Radio 4 and numerous theatre shows in the UK. My company Barbershopera received 6 Musical Theatre Network awards. www.robcastell.com

I love people. I love society, citizenship, social networks, communities. I write music, lyrics and scripts and I'm fiercely political. I think politics is important, but often done in such a dull and depressing way. So I started making music videos - one about the EU Referendum in the UK (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-saz5emRGs) and one about the US Elections in Nov 2016 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIX6vQzMLaU). Both of them got loads of shares and likes and compliments and I felt... inspired. So I'm gonna keep going.

I'm less keen these days on trying to take a side or persuade people specifically to vote for X or Y or this person or that person. I think a more inclusive approach is to provide skilful, witty, illuminating creative commentary on the political, cultural and social world around us.

I hope I can entertain and offer little bits of insight too. Thanks for stopping by.

To make a super slick 2/3min rap music video with my main man Will Kenning. We've done beautiful things together before and we got loads of love for these two efforts:

The British general election is coming up and I have a juicy new rap for everybody. It isn't party political but it speaks about the climate of our politics in 2017. Fun, right?

To make this properly, the money will go towards:

- Director / Cameraman / Editing fees
- Recording Studio Time
- Props / Costumes
- Marketing & Publicity 
- Travel
- Bonus for me if there's anything left over :)

Thank you good people. Let's do this!
