A survey into talent and creativity in the UK that revealed Robbie Williams is the top musical influence for unsigned musicians, has boosted traffic to The Canopy Channel, the free online digital library that commissioned the survey.

The British think they can sing and Robbie is the main inspiration for their dreams of becoming professional musicians!

More than half of the UK population think they could compose music and sing – and Robbie Williams is their main inspiration, according to the recent survey by the free web image and music hosting service, The Canopy Channel.

The survey of creative talent and ambition in the UK was carried out by the new free online digital library, - a free platform that encourages web users to become musicians and composers by publishing lyrics and to share new music online.

The Canopy Channel has tapped into the public’s love of using the new web-based audio production programmes to produce and share music online – and express their creativity.

Publicity about the survey has boosted visits to the new free online digital library, which is seeing its highest visitor numbers since its launch in 2006.

The Canopy Channel is not only a free online music hosting website, but is popular with writers, designers and other creative types too, who can create a free online digital image library, or publish and share videos online.

Results of this investigation show that 23 per cent of the British population aspire to become professional musicians. Also, among them 13 per cent hold a very strong dream to take up vocal coaching or join a band, before they die.

Author-Composer Robbie Williams was by far the most inspirational musician mentioned by the 3,000 respondents to the survey; the second most influential music star was the indestructible pop queen Madonna.
