Singer-songwriter Robert Coyne's website



Robert Coyne's three albums with Can's legendary drummer Jaki Liebezeit - The Obscure Department (2013), Golden Arc (2014) and I Still Have This Dream (2016) - combine cyclical acoustic guitar and drums with Coyne's melancholic lyrics and melodies; a stark but rich sound described by one reviewer as 'a mixture of Krautrock repetition and pastoral English psychedelia.' Solo albums Death Is Not My Destiny (2007) and Last Lion (2016) reflect influences ranging from '50's Rock and Roll and Doo-Wop to '70's Hard Rock and Electronic music, while Woodland Conspiracy is an intimate, darkly humorous acoustic LP.

The son of singer, musician, artist and author Kevin Coyne, and a musician himself from the age of 14, Robert has played with the Scientists, Silver Chapter, Venus Ray, The Barracudas, Amy Rigby, Eric Burdon, Sky Saxon, Jon Langford and Chris Wilson, among many others. His solo work also includes a film soundtrack to the Edinburgh-festival-winning 'The Great Happiness Space' in 2006, the Soft Tread Of The Future EP on Marty Thau's revived Red Star label in 2012, and two songs for Karl Bruckmaier's 2015 radio production of Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy.
