about

With a voice of Jeff Buckley-level virtuosity and an instrumental flair sharpened by afternoons studying Nick Drake’s finger-picking and Bill Evans’ chords, Mcrobin (aka James McGuffie) is the kind of musician you rarely encounter who doesn’t demand your attention; he already has it.

While this brilliant musicality hooks you in at first, it’s his songwriting that truly captures. Mcrobin harvests beauty from the everyday to shape intelligent, slow-burning, alternative-folk tunes that are instantly accessible yet, grow with every listen. This was evident upon the release of his debut single Waiting for the Rain in 2014, which was recognised as a finalist for both the International Songwriting Competition and the Darebin Music Feast Songwriters' Award. Recorded and produced alongside drummer/collaborator Jim Rindfleish and mixed by renowned engineer Matt Voigt (Big Scary, Oh Mercy), Fault Lines is the validation of a decade of songwriting self-education. Mcrobin’s cinematic musical scope, electronic experimentation, and life-affirming lyrical perspective marks him as one of the most unique songwriters to surface in recent times.

Track Name: Side A: Vinegar (Single Edit)
Young man he stands alone, December nights contain no light to stay
Says a, woman, “Is your home near, or far from here, can I wipe your tears away?
Way from your face”

Covert below, She takes him home, deciphers codes to find out what’s inside
Says the, woman, “There’s wise in you, I see it through, all your mother left behind,
A poor vacant mind, poor vacant mind, your mind”

Words like vinegar
Sweet and bitter, you find
Stop and start again,
Amid clearer vision, you find you find

Come man, come child of mine, not of blood line, but our place upon the way
Says the woman, “You’re part of me, not part the, the lands of waifs and strays
Be done with the devils day, day, day."
Track Name: Side B: How Long Will You Run? (Live)
"How long will you run?" I asked the pen
"'Til paper deceive’s me 'til the string finds it’s own end"
Just like that eternity began
I guess that that’s the art
So what better time to start
Feeling like colours on a chart
As we navigate the fault lines of our hearts
As we navigate the fault lines of our hearts

How long will you wait until it’s fair
Another day without her is like breathing without air
But only you can choose love over hate
But I guess that we are born
To appreciate the thorns
Think I’m coming after dawn
As we navigate the fault lines of our hearts
As we navigate the fault lines of our hearts
As we navigate the fault lines of our hearts

And you know
There is no better view
Still you keep on searching for a clue
And a way to start a new
But I’m afraid that day won’t come to you

"How long will you run?" I asked the pen
"'Til paper deceive’s me 'til the string finds it’s own end"
