Robin Skinner makes music by himself, in his bedroom under the name Cavetown, but his songs belong to the world.

Fans see themselves in Skinner's music: tales of love and loss, of yearning to make sense of life. For three minutes at a time, listeners feel less alone inside his songs, finding comfort in times of chaos and confusion.

Cavetown's fourth album, Lemon Boy, puts Skinner's effortless, bright melodies and economic songwriting on full display. From the looping folk-pop title track (with an inventive music video that's racked up 1.2 million YouTube views) to the uke-meets-electronica "Fool" and jazzy "888," it's an intimate, calming collection that displays a songwriting craft far beyond his years. Most importantly, it's from the heart.

"I speak about very genuine things and very personal things that I personally find hard to say," Skinner explains. "That's why I write a song about it. I think people relate to that: Sometimes they can't put things into words, but when they hear a song about it, they can point to that."

Mother Mother
https://www.mothermothersite.com

Comprised of Ryan Guldemond (vocals, guitar), Molly Guldemond (vocals, keys), Jasmin Parkin (vocals, keys), Ali Siadat (drums) and Mike Young (bass), Mother Mother are best known for their deep connection with their fans, and for bringing stadium-sized energy to their live show, no matter the stage. Singing about themes of alienation and enormous longing for self and societal acceptance, the band's mission is to be a home for souls that feel they don't fit in anywhere else.

Mother Mother were recently catapulted into a new stratosphere of universal success following the release of their critically acclaimed studio album INSIDE. Their explosive follow-up to "Hayloft," "Hayloft II" connected with fans around the world and is now certified Gold in the US and approaching Platinum in their home country of Canada. A string of #1 radio hits in Canada, 6 billion global streams, and multiple Billboard chart appearances cement their newfound global success.

The quintet spent most of the last year touring the world playing to sold-out audiences in theaters to stadiums, with multiple sold-out headline tours in Europe, UK, Canada, Australia and the U.S. as well as past and upcoming festival plays at Reading + Leeds, Lollapalooza in Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Berlin, Corona Capital in Mexico, Pukkelpop Belgium, Frequency Festival in Austria, Lowlands in The Netherlands and more.

"Their willingness to go topsy-turvy with instrumentation and song structure and keep the listener guessing has made them big stars" - CMJ

Vancouver indie rock band Mother Mother's eighth full-length album Inside takes its inspiration from self-reflection, something band frontman and songwriter Ryan Guldemond was forced to do in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. "The world stopped, and all of sudden I had a lot more alone-time on my hands, which isn't necessarily conducive to songwriting," Ryan says. "Usually, I like to venture out and find guidance from an external, interactive narrative - travelling, people, serendipities etc. I love that process - it's almost like you're in collaboration with the world. But since that wasn't an option, I set about a different kind of travel, one more inward and personal, exploring different types of therapies, meditation, and journaling as a means to unearth songs from a deeper, interior place."

After several months of writing and recording demos in his home, Inside was recorded with Howard Redekopp, who produced the band's first two albums. In many ways, the album both expands on Mother Mother's prolific career, and connects them back to the origins of their success. In the summer of 2020, the band began to notice that fans were flocking to streaming services in unprecedented numbers to listen to songs from their first two albums. It was revealed that these songs, including "Hayloft," "Arms Tonite" and "Wrecking Ball," had become recent Tik-Tok hits connecting them with an entirely new generation of fans, resulting in a Rolling Stone feature, multiple appearances on Billboard's Emerging Artist Chart, and millions upon millions of streams and followers on streaming services and social platforms. It was a welcomed reinvigoration ahead of the release of Inside. For the band, who have toured extensively over the years, regularly selling out shows in New York, London, Los Angeles and Toronto, finding new fans with old music is simply part of the journey. "It feels like a big, surreal gift from the universe," says Ryan. "For us, it's always been about the joy of music, and sharing in this joy with others, so the more the merrier, and it doesn't really matter if it's an old or new song someone is connecting to. Songs don't understand the concept of time. They're eternal."
