Indie folk/rock from Finland.
Following the breakup of his long-term band, Finnish songwriter Robin Pahlman stored away his band equipment and moved to Seattle, WA. By chance, he came across an old, beat up Harmony acoustic guitar at the flea market. Inspired by the instrument’s quirks and limitations, he challenged himself to step out of his musical comfort zone in order to take his songwriting to the next level. While studying American literature and mapping out the city and the breathtakingly beautiful nature of the Pacific Northwest on foot, songs about space, place, travel, and relationships were born.
Back in his native Finland, Robin worked at sea, and served as singer, guitar- and banjo player with an acoustic country duo, before once again relocating, this time to Vienna, Austria. He has spent most of 2012 in his modest home studio in Vienna, recording demos with the intention to release his first solo album.
Robin was born and raised in the small coastal town of Pargas, Finland. He has played with various musical outfits and has explored many genres ranging from punk rock to bluegrass. With his former band, he recorded and released albums and toured the world. He plays various string instruments, mainly the guitar and the banjo, and has a passion for melody, vocal harmonies, literature, and languages.
