Tickets on sale Friday July 26th @ 10am from www.shine.net & www.ticketmaster.ie

Robin Skinner makes music by himself, in his bedroom, but his songs belong to the world.

The son of a professional flautist and Cambridge University’s director of music, the 20-year-old UK singer/songwriter—who’s performed under the name ​CAVETOWN ​since 2013—has musical talent literally embedded in his DNA. But that underlying musical theory is nothing without the emotional underpinnings that take a song from technically proficient to transformatively powerful.

Marrying the two is what makes Cavetown so captivating and resonant with fans. They see themselves in Skinner’s music: tales of love and loss, of yearning to make sense of life and all the feelings that go along with it. For three minutes at a time, listeners feel less alone inside his songs, finding comfort in times of chaos and confusion.

The direct through-line to fans’ emotions is the result of the barrier-free relationship Skinner has created with his audience. Outside of his deeply personal music, Cavetown’s YouTube channel is full of day-in-the-life, behind-the-scenes vignettes – along with covers of his favourite songs and other musical treats – that allow fans to get to know Skinner as more than just a voice filling their earbuds.

With a magnetic personality and such universally relatable songs, Skinner is well on his way to expanding that musical family. Cavetown’s most recent full-length album, ​LEMON BOY​, has won over listeners far and wide with effortless, bright melodies and economic songwriting on full display. From the looping folk-pop title track (with an inventive music video that’s racked up more than 7 million YouTube views) to the uke-meets-electronica “Fool” and jazzy “888,” it’s an intimate, calming collection that displays a songwriting craft far beyond his years.

Following the breakthrough success of the ​Lemon Boy​ and worldwide tours – including multiple-night residencies in London, Los Angeles, and New York City – Skinner is venturing deep into the ​ANIMAL KINGDOM​, a digital mixtape series that features new songs, covers and re-imaginings of catalog material each month along with a song from a friend or peer that he’s had a hand in creating.
