Well known to SA audiences from hits like “All of Woman” and “Baby, You Been Good”, his music, over the years, has evolved from the pop rock sound of his early recordings to the contemporary mix of blues and roots that makes his sound today.
Based in Cape Town, he has performed and recorded in New York, London, California, Glasgow and Nashville.
Born in Lusaka, Zambia to Scots parents, Robin’s childhood was spent alternating between Southern Africa and Scotland; a journey reflected in the African and Celtic influences in his music. He learned to play the guitar by listening to Hendrix, Ry Cooder and Neil Young, also absorbing influences from the various guitarists of Southern Africa.
He has just released his new SAMA nominated album “Back of the Line”, available in record shops and on iTunes. Therese Owen of the Joburg Star has called it “a splendid album of both lyrical and musical depth” and it has been receiving excellent reviews nationwide.
He will be playing tunes from the new album which will be available at the show at Bloo Bistro which starts 7:30pm on Sunday the 8th, tickets R100.
