Robin Skinner makes music by himself, in his bedroom under the name Cavetown, but his songs belong to the world. Since 2013 he started covering his favourite artists and sharing this content online via YouTube. Cavetown’s fourth album, “Lemon Boy”, puts Skinner’s effortless, calming collection that displays a songwriting craft far beyond his years.
Music is how Skinner copes with the challenges of the world, a way to funnel his frustrations into a healthy output: “I speak about very genuine things and very personal things that I personally find hard to say,” he explains. “That’s why I write a song about it. I think people relate to that. Sometimes they can’t put things into words, but when they hear a song about it, they can point to that.”
