"Response from Hayden Dresser re: song"

Thanks for sending over your song about me...
My response would be that you're not missing anything. - Hayden Dresser


Five Year Nap (EP)- 2011
Sunday (EP)- 2003



Robyn Cunningham is a storyteller in the truest sense of the word. Her music turns the mundane into the magical; such as the coming of spring in "All I Want Is Spring" or a chance and awkward encounter with a B level Canadian indie star in "Hayden". Combining hints of blues, pop and folk traditions, Robyn manages to craft whimsical and playful songs that are as charming as they are insightful. Her songs are incisive local fairy tales about neighbourhoods, family life and simple joys.

Produced by Beau Dixon, who has recorded artists such as Greg Keelor (Blue Rodeo) and Willie P. Bennett (The Fred Eaglesmith Band), her laid back acoustic sound is intimate and honest. Harmonies abound, and catchy melodies do too. It's the ideal soundtrack for summer days spent watching people or clouds roll by.

Currently based in Peterborough, Robyn originally hails from Newmarket, Ontario. She honed her songwriting skills at years of campfires in her backyard, under the stars and removed from the lights and noise of nearby Toronto. Robyn began singing at an early age and was headed down the classical road until she found Aretha Franklin, Joni Mitchell and Sarah Harmer. After that, things changed and Robyn found her own voice and musical style.

In the spring of 2011 Robyn released a 5-song EP, "Five Year Nap", available on iTunes. She is currently performing locally in Peterborough as well moonlighting with the country band, "Canteen Knockout" in Toronto.
