Gorilla on Tour – Performer Profiles: Robin Grey

 

Inspired by the timeless work of Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen and Joanna Newsom amongst many others, Robin colours in his songs about love and life with guitar, banjo, ukulele, mandolin, piano, double bass, organ, percussion toys and any other instruments he can afford and fit into his little studio.

His music has been described as ‘gently experimental nu-folk’ and compared to Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits, Richard Thompson and Harry Chaplin – he is a bit distressed by the misspelling of the word ‘new’ and has no idea who Harry Chaplin is.

His latest video ‘Mariam’s Cake’ was shot with legendary puppeteer Ronnie Le Drew  who worked on the holy trinity of Labyrinth, Rocky Horror, and most excitingly, was Zippy from Rainbow.

We’re super excited to have Robin on the southern leg of the Gorilla tour – you can check him out online here, or come see him live in Leeds, Brighton, Oxford, Bristol or Cardiff
