Poet, songwriter, Robin Gorn, is releasing her first commercial EP as a preview for her upcoming, full length album. Wild, ripe and true with a heaping spoonful of saudade ( a Brazilian word for happy, sad, passionate longing); these five songs are five worlds in a cinematic universe that moves sinuously through roots and world music from RnB to Brazilian rhythms to Blue Grass. A formidable songwriter, her first commercial release brings an old school musical vibe that transports you to a time and place.
Going deeper to find the light.
Robin is an independent artist living in Montreal, Quebec. Her powerful poetry is honestly delivered by an enchanting voice. At once nuanced and textured, she is capable of knocking you over with her full throated intensity.
"I like the play of opposites. A hard reality sweetly rendered, something melodic that can seriously groove without extra volume, unexpected sonic storms that wake you up."
Robin is rooted in the vibrant arts melting pot of Montreal. She has shared her creative energy in collaborations with artists from home and around the world in music, dance, poetry, art, film and TV. In Bahia, Brazil, she performed with some of the most celebrated musicians of that region. She also performs in poetry festivals. Robin has a special connection to the experimental women's choir Choeur Maha, with whom she has collaborated for more than a decade.
