Bio

Singer/Songwriter Robin Smith's lyrics not only paint an intimate portrait of her own life, but also of the lives she sees around her. Her keen ability to explain some of life's stickiest situations, of love lost and love found in her lyrics is poetic yet playful. The combinations of her powerful strumming, soulful voice and metaphorical words create a sound that can stop the most important of conversations in mid-sentence.

Growing up in the midwest, Robin got inspired to do music mostly by listening to artists such as Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Ani Difranco and Patty Griffin. At the age of 18, Robin got her first guitar and began teaching herself how to play. Robin has played many local venues in her home town of East Grand Forks, MN and surrounding areas but will never forget her first performance at Urban Stampede; a local coffee house and music venue of that area. " I was so nervous, and forgot the lyrics to a few of my own songs but it was my first real taste of performing and even though it was mainly in front of family, friends and a few locals it brought a sense of strength and determination to my life which has never left. There is nothing more satisfying then reaching for a dream and despite all struggles finding a daily sense of hope and purpose, that was my first experience with those particular emotions."

In 2005, Robin felt a pull South and transplanted herself to the "Live Music Capital of the World", Austin, Texas. She quickly was embraced by the Austin music scene and became a familiar face in the establishments around town. " I had never been to Austin before I decided on moving there but did have many people suggest it. Something about Austin just felt right and when I entered the city for the first time I felt like I was at home there. I just knew it was all going to go alright and that I would have great experiences. Musicians here pull you in and you become a family of sorts, inspiring each other and pushing each other. It's been unbelievable living here!"

Robin's music career is moving at a fast pace in all the right directions. She can found playing weekly at many different local Austin venues including Momos, Flipnotics and festivals in surrounding areas. Her 1st album is do to be released this December. Stay tuned...
