Causes are a 4 piece indie pop band composed of British singer/songwriter, Rupert Blackman (vocals) Jan Schröder (guitar), Simon Boeing-Messing (drums) and Robert Pronk (bass). Blackman moved to Amsterdam from the UK and started busking on the street. He regularly sold out of homemade CD’s and interest quickly garnered. He signed a record deal in Benelux with Play It Again Sam. Soon after he met guitarist Jan Schroder and Causes was swiftly formed.

The band’s debut single ‘Teach Me How To Dance With You’ was released in late 2014 in Benelux and proved an immediate success; first being playlisted on Radio 538, with all other major radio stations soon following suit. It quickly gained Platinum status and was followed up by a second, also very successful single Walk on Water which was premiered with a performance on 3FM June 4 alongside another RTL Late Night TV performance. Causes were invited back to RTL Late Night the following week to close the season finale. The band went on to sign a deal with Year One / RCA records in July 2015 and To The River was released on the 9th October, their first release outside Benelux.

2015 held a busy summer of live shows and festivals including Pinkpop & Appelpop as well as a headline show at the Paradiso in Amsterdam. Causes' debut album produced by Ian Grimble (Bears Den, Daughter) will be released in 2016 through RCA/PIAS. The band play Eurosonic & Noorderslag festivals on January 15 & 16.
