Robyn Hitchcock

DESCRIPTION

Robyn Hitchcock is one of England's most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician's musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock's father figures and the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration).

Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starring in Storefront Hitchcock, a concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme. Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as 'paintings you can listen to'. His most recent album, The Man Upstairs, is a bittersweet love letter to a vanishing world. Produced by legendary folk-rock Svengali Joe Boyd (Pink Floyd, Nick Drake) the album was critically acclaimed by MOJO, UNCUT and THE QUIETUS.

Special guest Emma Swift, a native of Australia, has a voice that is equal parts wit and heartbreak. Her songs have the grit and power of the best of Nashville.
