Robyn Hitchcock, one of England's most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers has announced a date for Cyprus Avenue on June 2nd, 2018
A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician's musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock's father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration). Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in â€˜Storefront Hitchcockâ€™ an in-concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme. Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as â€˜paintings you can listen toâ€™. His most recent album THE MAN UPSTAIRS is a bittersweet love letter to a vanishing world. Produced by legendary folk-rock svengali Joe Boyd (Pink Floyd, Nick Drake) the album was critically acclaimed by MOJO, UNCUT and THE QUIETUS.
"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
"As a performer, heâ€™s as much a wandering bard as a rock star." - The Believer
â€œSome spectral, lingering, emotional thundercloud hangs over The Man Upstairsâ€¦harks back to that infinitely distant yet eternally resonant emotional big bangâ€â€” UNCUT
