Robin’s inspiration comes from her own experiences and her Indigenous heritage. Robin’s heritage takes form in music through her alternative beats and lyrics that challenge the status quo.

These singles received many praises in addition to being played on radio in Canada and internationally.

“Concentric” was released in 2019 and truly showed Robin’s love for metaphors and shows a dramatic growth in her song writing ability. She creates a world all her own.
“Robin goes out of her way to let us interpret her songs as we prefer through her use of lyrical metaphors. Concentric is an adult song in the guise of a child’s frequent switches between being lost and their euphoria of finding their way” … “the manifestation of Robin’s achronistic nature was planned within Concentric. This says a lot of positive things about Robin’s movement into the driver’s seat of her song writing, her ability to communicate what she wants”
