Number Seven: O! Robinson


Welcome back. July’s track is called O! Robinson, and is my ode to one of the most intriguing characters ever written into a fictional world. You’ll hear my vocals/guitars/trumpets/percussion and Ana on cello. This one’s fresh from the grinder, recorded last week with Tim Shann (who also mixed and mastered and designed the track’s accompanying drink, the Robinson.

Anyway, Escape Songs is now seven songs done with five to go, and there’ll be more information on the release and touring etc coming as the year draws to a close. We have some interesting stuff coming up.

Also, Pig (April’s track) was included on the Music Alliance Pact mixtape – a collective of 33 blogs worldwide contribute a song from their home nation every month and the mixtape of all 33 songs is available for free download from the various blogs. July’s mixtape can be found HERE.

  1. Hey there,
    I looked through your sites for an email contact, but couldn’t find one, so thought I might drop you a comment here in the hopes that you’ll find it.

    I’m an Auckland based musician, and I’m hoping to play a gig in Wellington in the near(ish) future. I tried to plan a mini North Island tour, but that didn’t work out when I couldn’t find a band to do it with me, so I’m just hoping to just come to Wellington instead. I was having a chat to my friend Graeme John, and he suggested that I ask you guys if you’d be interested in playing a show?

    I was hoping to come down to Wellington either in the last weekend of September or the first weekend of October – would you folks be interested at all in playing a gig then?

    Hope to talk to you soon!

    • Hey Ivy,

      Sorry, just found this. My email is, but I don’t think we can play then anyway… we’re all really busy at the start of October and probably won’t have a new set ready until the end of the year for the release of the album. Maybe later in the year though? Cheers
