ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
7sleepers is seven songs about seven that might put you to sleep. It was recorded over a period of seven years (or so) in a home studio in Michigan USA.

Full disclosure: It’s not really seven songs about seven, more like four songs about seven and three more about other things.

7sleepers started as a relatively conventional acoustic singer-songwriter project (think Gordon Lightfoot), but things got a little weird when I started mixing (think Brian Eno). It’s mostly ambience and acoustic guitar and vocals, with occasional electric guitar and synth. Almost no percussion at all. I left in a lot of the “rough edges” because I thought they helped to create a sense of space. Or something like that.

So what’s the deal with the number seven? Fair question. I don’t think anyone knows for sure. The number just keeps showing up in all sorts of mythological and religious contexts pretty much all over the world. It seems to be mostly centered on the Middle East, but it also shows up in Hindu and Buddhist and Native American cultures. Most notably here

By the way, 7sleepers is me. My name is Robin. I have a dayjob.
