Poet singer/songwriter, Robin Gorn is releasing her first commercial album.
These fourteen songs are worlds in a cinematic universe that move sinuously through Roots and World music from RnB to Brazilian rhythms to Blue Grass.
A formidable songwriter, Robin’s immense emotional range is heart shatteringly intimate while she is capable of knocking you over with her full-throated intensity.
Going deeper to find the light
Robin is an independent artist living in Montreal, Quebec. Her songs go deep beneath the surface to embrace the joyous and painful inconsistencies that transform our lives.
"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. She also performs in poetry festivals
In Bahia, Brazil, she performed with some of the most celebrated musicians of that region.
Robin recently worked on the production end of the 2014 Grammy Award winning album," Throw a Penny in The Wishing Well"
She also cowrote "There is a Garden", a documentary on Iran that premiered at the Montreal World Film Festival in 2014.
Robin has a special connection to the experimental women's choir Choeur Maha, with whom she has collaborated for more than a decade.
SoftWing, as Robin explains it means; “The wings that take flight from the revolution within”.
“I want this music to awaken people to who they are in their own deepest desire for connection to the source. Then meaningful change can happen."
