From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Causes was a four-piece indie pop band who were based in the Netherlands.


The band is composed of British singer/songwriter Rupert Blackman (vocals), Jan Schröder (guitar), Simon Boeing-Messing (drums) and Robert Pronk (bass).[1] Blackman moved to Amsterdam from the UK[2] and started busking on the street.[3][4][5] 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.[6][7]

The band’s debut single "Teach Me How To Dance With You" was released in late 2014 in Benelux and proved an immediate success;[8][9][10] first being playlisted on Radio 538,[11] with all other major radio stations soon following suit. It quickly gained Platinum status[12][13] and was followed up by a second, also very successful single "Walk on Water"[14] which was premiered with a performance on 3FM[15] June 4 alongside another RTL Late Night TV performance.[16][17][18] Causes were invited back to RTL Late Night the following week to close the season finale.[19][20] The band went on to sign a deal with Year One / RCA records [21] in July 2015 and "To The River" was released on 9 October, their first release outside Benelux.

2015 held a busy summer of live shows and festivals including Pinkpop[22][23] and Appelpop[24] as well as a headline show at the Paradiso in Amsterdam.[25][26][27] Causes' debut album was produced by Ian Grimble (Bears Den, Daughter)[28][29] and was released in 2016 through RCA/PIAS.[30][31] The band played the Eurosonic and Noorderslag festivals in January 2017.[32]

On 5 April 2019 the band announced that they were stopping as a band [33].
