A native of Vancouver, Canada, Robyn’s musical education began with The Royal Conservatory in piano and voice, followed by a Music Degree from the University of British Columbia. Fusing elements of jazz, pop, blues and country, Robyn’s formal training as a classical musician further blends a contemporary pop performance and writing style that is uniquely Robyn. With infectious melodies and grooves performed by her graceful dulcet tones, her compelling messages sing out with heartfelt enthusiasm. Skilled with her signature piano stylings and a vocal richness that performs intimate whispers to dynamic passion, she is very much her own artist: "Her vocals are extraordinary, crisp, clear, filled with color and shadowing" ~ Stu Hamstra, Cabaret Hotline, NYC
Robyn releases Sleep With Angels, her third full-length album of self-penned music. This collection of 12 songs celebrates the mystery and joy of life, always championing to follow your dreams and to believe in love. Drawing from a wealth of personal experiences and the many conversations she’s had with friends around the globe, she expresses her insights in musical poetry. With a career that began singing for one of the richest men in the world, The Sultan of Brunei, her music has since allowed her adventures that include: going behind the veil in Iran; experiencing the magnificent sand dunes in Africa and ice glaciers in Antarctica; walking through the cradle of civilization in Egypt and Israel and much more. The world and the collective wisdom and creativity from people around the world continue to inspire this award-winning songwriter: “A journeyman’s gift for songwriting and expressing the human heart that sets her apart from most songwriters today … an enchanted voice … a winner on every level" ~ John Hoglund, Cabaret Scenes, NYC
Robyn, a versatile artist and seasoned performer, celebrated her new Album, Sleep With Angels in an Original Multi-Media Presentation titled Diary of a Piano Girl. An entertaining and inspiring journey featuring songs, stories and seven continents, this unique concert which Robyn plans to tour, premiered on stage in Downtown Vancouver at the Orpheum Annex, Friday, September 19, 8.00pm: "No one writes and sings uplifting songs as beautifully as Robyn McCorquodale … an exquisite show and experience from start to finish!!” ~ Skyy Powers, She-Boom! CFRO Radio 100.5 FM Vancouver
Robyn's musical journey began with a 60 day adventure singing in Southeast Asia for a notorious playboy Prince and his Harem. This is one of the many engaging stories that Robyn loves to share with her audience. In a world fueled by power and excessive material wealth, her lasting memory of time spent in notably one of the richest places in the world, is the vivid and haunting impression of the many sad eyes she left behind, including her own. This life altering experience defined the direction of Robyn’s music career: to write and share meaningful songs that would uplift, inspire and empower. “Her wealth of talents: a strong yet nuanced singing voice; colorful, jazz-flavored piano work, innate charm, intelligence and good spirits"
