10 MP3 Songs
POP: Beatles-pop, ROCK: Psychedelic
Robertson developed his skills as a singer and lyricist while writing songs with Tim Butler (PSYCHEDELIC FURS) from 1994 to 1997 for their band, Feed. The band recorded enough material for two albums before Robertson moved on to front the New York-based band, Punch Havana, from 1997 to 2001. While recording two EPs and an LP, The Hansa Sessions, in Berlin, Germany, he learned what to expect from working within the confines of a recording studio. After returning from Punch Havana's last gig, the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas, Robertson concentrated more on writing than performing. Applying a DIY attitude to his thoughtful version of pop music, and opting to free himself from recording schedule constraints, he put together a portable home studio. Choosing the tranquility of the old seaside whaling village of Sag Harbor, NY to set up shop, Robertson plays most of what you hear on Here We Are, but also uses the talents of some of his favorite NYC musicians. Guests include: Justin Guip (MARK GEARY), Tom Clapp (ELEFANT, THE FEVER), Jesko Stahl (MELODROME) and Micah Green.
A few weeks into the making of Here We Are, Robertson found the sound and direction he was looking for, and the songs flourished with experimentation. Robertson says, "I discovered that layering different instruments, while playing simple lines or parts, took my songs in a new direction. I can still see a connection to where I left off with Punch Havana, but this solo experience put me in an entirely new place as a songwriter."
Ultimately Robertson's debut falls somewhere between Elliot Smith and Pink Floyd with vague references to Sonic Youth, Jeff Buckley, and 10cc. It combines memorable, tuneful stories with trippy soundscapes that ease into your subconscience without trespassing on it.
Robertson is currently booking shows through the winter. Check https://www.tradebit.com for added dates.
