Cavetown distilled his energy on 'Sleepyhead' into what really moves fans: the songs themselves, occasionally lighthearted, largely poignant, but always authentically him. He explains, "Ultimately, everyone has the same struggles when we boil it down, even if the details are different. That's what I'm trying to get across with my music. It's basically just me telling myself what I need to hear."
Since launching Cavetown at age 14, the singer, real name Robin Skinner, has racked up 250 million Spotify plays and 1.15 million YouTube subscribers. He did so not with a viral hit or easy gimmicks, but rather pure heart, filling his YouTube channel with day-in-the-life, behind-the-scenes vignettes and covers that allowed fans a barrier-free inside look at his life. Coupled with his original, self-recorded music, Skinner's unassuming-yet-captivating personality took the internet by storm, catapulting him to millions of streams and subscribers and stages around the world, including recent sold-out headline performances at venues like Los Angeles' Fonda Theatre, New York City's Webster Hall and London's Shepherd's Bush Empire, as well as Reading & Leeds, Shaky Knees, and TRNSMT Festival.
His performances, like his music, are an inspiring celebration of life in all its forms, as fans come from points near and far to laugh, cry and revel in the deep-rooted sense of connectivity found in the songs. Billboard recently profiled the phenomenon around Cavetown in "Welcome to Cavetown's World, A Place That Feels Like Home."
