David Buskin & Robin Batteau (Buskin & Batteau)

I’m just starting to work with a great acoustic songwriting duo, Buskin & Batteau. The two have been working together since the late ‘60s, first in a group called PIerce Arrow, then as members of Tom Rush’s back up group. That’s were David Buskin and Robin Batteau ended up singing and writing songs together. Their most famous song is “Boy With The Violin,” which you can hear on myspace.com/buskinbatteau.

They have a lot of tour dates coming up. The duo have just put the finishing touches on their long-anticipated new CD, RED SHOES AND GOLDEN HEARTS, to be released by Nouveau Retro Media on April 1'st. (No fooling.) In their new album and in their performances, they continue to offer their audiences, in the words of The Washington Post, "an irresistible amalgam of melodic, sensual pop, folkie grit and killer wit."
