Caregiver basically started when far too late in my life, I feel in love with classic electronic artists and began being a fan of some modern ones as well. I never thought of myself as an electronic music fan until I heard the stuff that made sense to me." (D. R.)

Caregiver - Caregiver (USA 2007)
The debut LP by CAREGIVER from 2007.
CAREGIVER is in fact the one-man-music-project of Darryl Robbins from Dayton, Ohio.
All of the LPs "were recorded in various manners with analog tape in my basement, but primarily to the computer. Some of the stuff used on them include guitars, basses, drums, Moog Modular, Minimoog, Mellotron, Mono/Poly, Poly 6, and small tape recorders. - The official releases are the self titled LP, Letters 1 & 2, and Afraid of Everything. Currently, I'm involved with no record labels at all. - I'd call the music electronic psychedelia I suppose. Influences include Tangerine Dream, Cluster, Neu!, Tim Hecker, Harmonia, Faust, Terry Riley, and Suicide. - Outside of this, I am the sole member of Peopleperson (instrumental guitar rock, like Link Wray meets Adrian Belew meets MX-80 Sound), a member of the Smug Brothers (lo-fi british style pop), the Motel Beds (pop/rock), Big Baby, and I'm also a virtual backing band for singer/songwriter Joe Anderl. The various myspace pages for these projects are...
I hear especially a strong TANGERINE DREAM influence.
