Bio

  • Robin Skinner, the 20-year-old UK singer/songwriter — who’s performed under the name CAVETOWN since 2013 — makes music by himself, at home, but his songs belong to the world. As the son of a professional flautist and Cambridge University’s director of music, Skinner's own musical talents were apparent at a young age when he began making music as a teen, posting original songs and covers on his self-made Youtube channel. As a result, listeners see themselves in Skinner’s honest songwriting and effortless melodies: tales of love and loss, of yearning to make sense of life and all the feelings that go along with it. Fans around the world have built and nurtured their own underground, grassroots community centered around Cavetown: they line up for hours ahead of Cavetown shows, coordinate homemade art projects, and bring the own kazoos to play along with him. It’s an unbreakable, authentic bond that’s earned over 800K Youtube subscribers and nearly 70 million video views, the result of the Skinner’s tireless and whole-hearted optimism taking roots amongst his listeners. Following his most recent full-length album, Lemon Boy, which saw breakout success with its title track that’s racked up nearly 8 million YouTube views, and resulting worldwide tours – including multiple-night residencies in London, Los Angeles, and New York City – Skinner is primed to make his major label debut on Sire Records later this year.
