Robin was given her first guitar at the age of twelve and has been playing and singing ever since. In the mid 1990’s she co-founded and spent five years performing both original music and covers with the acoustic duo “Wildwood Flowers”, which entertained at various venues in and around the Toronto area, including Harbourfront and the Women in Country, Folk & Blues Festival. Robin also found the time to pursue her interest in jazz music and graduated as a vocal major from the Humber College Jazz Studies/Commercial Music Program, where she won the Gordon Delamont Award for composition.
Naming such diverse influences as Gordon Lightfoot, John Denver, Patsy Cline and The Indigo Girls, Robin describes her songs as a unique blend of folk and pop. She has been writing songs for over twenty years and draws on the joys and heartbreaks of everyday life for her inspiration. In an effort to continue to hone her songwriting skills, Robin joined the Toronto Songwriters Association in 2009 and enjoys being challenged by the monthly songwriting assignments handed out by the club.
Robin has just released her debut CD "Free to Fly".
