Cavetown

Robin Daniel Skinner comes from an unusual musical family. Both his parents are classical musicians at a high level. Their son started learning the guitar when he was eight and got into pop music. In 2012, Robin started to post songs on YouTube and Bandcamp. His melodic bedroom pop gained a fanatical following that developed into a global community. Skinner sells out day after day of concerts in London, Los Angeles and New York. Fans queue for hours to get tickets and bring kazoos with which to accompany their young hero. It’s all very authentic and organic, and now very popular too.  Some figures: 1 million subscribers on YouTube and more than 40 million streams for sweet pop tunes such as ‘Boys Will Be Bugs’ and ‘This Is Home’. Don’t forget your kazoo!
