Quirky, but self-aware singer/songwriter, most often compared to Syd Barrett - and rightly so: Syd is a self-confessed hero of Robyn's - who inspired, both through his exploits and with collaborative efforts with the Egyptians and earlier, The Soft Boys, many contemporary pop musicians.
He has released over a dozen albums, getting fairly good reviews for I Often Dream of Trains, Eye, and Element of Light.
Personally, I find his music tends to attract over-cerebral people. If you like Italo Calvino, you'll probably like Robyn.
