Bio

    Robin is a fixture in the Montreal’s Independent and World Music scenes and has worked in dance, film, theatre and visual art.  She has travelled and performed with musicians around the planet

Robin Gorn’s SoftWing is highly original grooves, deeply moving lyrics and gorgeous vocals. These 15 songs are worlds in a cinematic universe that move sinuously through Roots and World music from RnB to Brazilian rhythms to Blue Grass; featuring musicians from Japan to Togo. Since SoftWing had its release, this Indie project is creating excitement with airplay all over the world from Australia, Europe, NPR, CBC to Martinique and Jamaica who are currently playing Robin’s Reggae song. Robin’s solid fan base are filling up Montreal clubs to capacity to hear her stellar 4 piece band of multi-instrumentalists who sing beautiful back vocals. This revolutionary album gives old-school care to the soundscapes and arrangements of Robin’s masterful poetry.

               A New Genre of Internationalist Music

Robin is a fixture in the Montreal’s Independent and World Music scenes and has worked in dance, film, theatre and visual art.  She has travelled and performed with musicians around the planet. Robin wowed by playing SoftWing across Canada by train from coast to coast. Robin received special thanks for her production input on the 2014 Grammy Award winning album, Throw a Penny in The Wishing Well  by Jennifer Gasoi and cowrote There is a Garden, a documentary on Iran with award winning filmmaker, Masoud Raouf  that premiered at the Montreal World Film Festival ,2014. She has performed with with Montreal artists like Patrick Watson,  Juno Award winning Mike Rud, Roddy Ellias, Nico Beki and Paulo Ramos  and was a member of Kalmunity Vibe Collective (2003-2005), as well as the experimental women’s choir Cheour Maha (1995-present)

SoftWing features Juno Award nominee Annabelle Chvostek  as well as young Brazilian guitar sensation, Rommel Ribeiro. In Bahia Brazil, Robin worked with some of the most celebrated musicians like Gerónimo Montserrat  and the spectacular Orkestro Rumpilezz (Who tour with Lenine, Gilberto Gil and Joshua Redman).

Whether it is the spirit journey of Noah’s Arms or Robin’ s nod to the Philadelphia Sweet Soul Sound in Till We Try, or the Capoeira style circle dance of Cheguei Lá or the Afro-CaribbeanDoo-Wap of New Rocksteady, this album will take you from heartache to upliftment.

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.”
