From The Weekly Review
Pearce found film shoots the perfect place to write songs: “No dogs to walk, no family to visit”. But it was always done somewhat in secret. Which begs the question; who else is in this secret songwriter society? Who is the best actor slash songwriter too self-conscious to “come out”? “Rob Pattinson,” Pearce says, naming the Twilight megastar he recently acted alongside in The Rover.
“He’s got an amazing voice and his songs are really contemporary.”
The rationale that, like Pattinson’s songwriting, his was a hidden passion and the concealment was for the best, became a story he told himself and others.
