The Smokehouse presents legendary singer-songwriter and former Soft Boys frontman Robyn Hitchcock.
A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician’s musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock’s father figures. Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, he describes his songs as ‘paintings you can listen to’.
Robyn is a true star and has worked with artists such as Gillian Welch, Kimberly Rew, Peter Buck (REM), John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub) and Brendan Benson (The Raconteurs).
“A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings…” – Rolling Stone
