Among the most respected jazz singers in Queensland today, Robyn has delighted audiences and impressed critics with her warmth, grace and natural ability to ‘feel’ and interpret the music. Inspired by the early jazz and blues greats such as Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holliday and with a love of the passion in gospel and blues music, her heartfelt renditions of jazz and blues standards convey subtle moods and tell a story as she sings. From a sultry ballad, to a jumping swing, a latin groove to a romping scat solo, every note is delivered with passion and grace and draws the audience in to the story.
Robyn is a vocalist who is truly a member of the band and plays off the musicians as they all share in the joy of discovery and creativity in their improvisation.
Based on the Sunshine Coast, she is a regular performer at festivals and jazz clubs and has performed nationwide with national and international jazz stars. As well as leading her own bands, writing, performing and recording music she is also actively involved in the disability community and has occasional public speaking roles representing Carers and people with disabilities. These experiences have contributed to her passion for life which comes through in her music.
More than the music, it is Robyn’s smooth elegance, her warmth and passion, her feeling and heart that moves you and leaves its mark on your soul.
