Originally hailing from Amsterdam, hitchhiking traveler Robin Cause has released a lovely new tune called “Bittersweet Love.” As far as guitar-based folk goes this is sure to be one of your favorites of the year! Check it out below:
Robin’s beautiful voice and skillful guitar playing are proof that this lifelong musician has honed his craft perfectly. “Bittersweet Love” is just the first of many new songs that he is gearing up to release. If this is a sign of new music to come, count me in!
Born in Amsterdam, Robin Cause first held a guitar at 12 years old and has rarely put it down ever since. A life of music at home led to him hitting the road at 19 years old with just a backpack and guitar. Robin soon found himself dropped off by a truck driver at a dropzone in northern California. While at The Parachute Center, Robin made friends with Darrel Dier who is a professional gambler that just moved into a tent one month earlier next to the airplane hangar.
A friendship formed in the two weeks Robin spent at the airport that would mold into a kindred bond as Darrel became Robin’s songwriter. Over two cross-country road trips, the two went to Fame Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Plus, another trip to continue writing and recording in Ventnor, Isle of Wight. With the focus being on the creative process, Batshit and Robin Records was born from a vision for the future of music.
