From 429 Records’ press release:

Music is in Tim Robbins’ blood. Raised in a musical household, both parents met as members of the UCLA marching band. His father, Gilbert Robbins, went on to join the influential folk ensemble The Highwaymen in the early sixties. Steeped in a creative environment, Robbins’ first memories include hanging out as child at the Gaslight in Greenwich Village which his father managed. Says Robbins: “My first desire to perform came from watching him on stage. I remember it as so intoxicating. Audiences were encouraged to sing along and be part of the event. That is a relationship I’ve been seeking all my life, that alchemy between performer and audience.” The years leading up to his recording debut at age 50 were spent finding his voice as a songwriter and performer. Robbins has long written songs and performed in small venues, but has kept it under the radar – until now. “I have too much respect for music to put out something that wasn’t coming from a genuine place.” Before recording his first album Robbins wanted to “understand what my voice was and what kind of stories I wanted to tell. I think I’m ready to tell those stories now.”
