Originally from England, now residing in Chicago, I'm a singer-songwriter operating under the not too imaginative nom-de-plume Steven P. Robinson. Once described in some strange backhanded compliment as 'The King of Oxfam Folk' by now defunct musical website Angry Ape for my beg, borrow, steal attitude to songwriting, I create mainly lo-fi tunes that I release as EP's. They are available for streaming in the music section of this site. As well as my solo stuff, for an iota I had a musical comrade in arms and recorded an EP as 'Adam & Steve' fusing my folksy sounds with a healthy dose of chaos, also available for streaming.

  • Got a show at Transistor Records in Chicago this Friday the 22nd with David Anthony Marshall and Scott & Odie, details here and cool poster here.
  • Performed a solo show at Uncommon Ground on August the 28th, 2014. Video of my Ron Sexsmith cover Childstar available here. And fairly poorly recorded audio of the whole shebang is available for download here.
  • Re-designed this site, patience as I iron out the kinks. The site still needs love to be completely mobile friendly and the scroll functionality isn't working in all versions of Firefox. For posterity purposes the old site can be found here.


Here is my collection of releases over time. Click on any of the below for streams and more details.
