Robin Wynn has been singing since she was a wee tot. From commercial jingles to choir, singing has come naturally to this native rural Virginian since the time she could talk. Picking up the guitar and writing her own songs would come later, however, and when it did, an audience soon followed. Playing at an open mic night in downtown Charlottesville, Robin met Mark Goldstein, the future producer, engineer and lead musician of her first album. Robin describes learning guitar and testing her songs in front of an audience as "the most gut wrenching, vulnerable thing I have ever done, and still do". A few years would intervene before the album would come to fruition. The innate hum of the songwriting beast within her would not cease, however, and so upon the insistence and support of her friends and fellow musicians, Robin set to work on her first album, Oblivion.
Recently asked by a radio interviewer about the dark implications of the title Oblivion, Robin responded that it was not necessarily a darkness that she was implying by the title, but more of a carefree abandonment. Robin has stated on more than one occasion that taking her love of music out into the world has been, and will continue to be, a curious Alice in Wonderland-like venture. "Sure it's frightening to allow the world into your most embarrassing and exhilarating places, places where you fall flat on your face, and places where you feel bigger than the sky itself, but in the end, if it's the place where you feel the most alive, it's worth the risk".
Oblivion is the first release off of OneTrueVibe Records, of which Robin is co-founder and owner.
