If you like acoustic singer-songwriters and songs about spaces, places and travel on the open road then this is for you. Following the breakup of his long-term band Agent Kooper in Finland, Robin Pahlman cut the strings on his electric guitar and moved to Seattle, WA. By chance, he found an old, beat up acoustic guitar at a flea market. Inspired by the instrument’s quirks and limitations, he challenged himself to step out of his musical comfort zone in order to take his songwriting to the next level.
According to his label, Robin Pahlman currently resides in Vienna, where he is apparently spending his time drinking coffee, recording music in his humble home studio, and regretting the fact that he can’t grow a full beard (Beards are of course a required part of the male singer-songwriter uniform these days). He will be kicking off his European tour with a release party in the Schnitzel capital as well (more info below).
The self-titled debut album will be released on the 15th of November on Monkey Records.
