Robin Lent: guitar, harmonica, vocals, writer Jan Hollestelle: bass Jan Akkerman: electric guitar Kees Kranenburg: percussion Thijs van Leer: piano, flute. Cuban born, Robin was raised in a family that traveled regularly - living in the US, Asia, and Europe as a child. In 1969, after dropping out of the University of California at Berkeley, Robin returned to London to play in the folk scene. There he auditioned for the musical Hair that was to open in Holland. In 2006, Tull on Wildlife selected the song "Sea Spray" from Scarecrow's Journey to be part of their second 'save the planet' album. Robin toured and worked as a studio guitarist in the early 70's, then landed a deal with CBS for a group he put together with guitarist Hans Hollestelle, Robinson Cruiser. Following this, Robin moved to France where he lives and continues to write and record.

This is a classic 70's album with plenty of atmosphere and a uniqueness that of course has its influences, coming from James Taylor and Paul Simon among others. A seductive voice over simple and straight forward backings. Some brillant guitar work from Jan Ackermann and excellent flute and piano played by Tijs van Leer, two top Dutch musicians. Robin plays acoustic guitar and wrote all of the songs. Check out ww. yspace. com/robinlent for more details on this obscure and talented artist.
