Seduction comes in many forms. Those who can seduce with style make it seem
effortless, unintentional, irresistible. Robin Stine's music seduces with a
whiff of subtle perfume and a casual graze of her hand as she walks past,
leaving the listener powerless to do anything but follow. As a singer, her voice
floats on the stylish edge of contemporary cool-light, but never lightweight. As
a songwriter, her enchanting originals set her in the upper echelon of today's
Born and raised in Kansas City, Robin began her musical journey as a child
singing in school groups and church choirs. When she left for college she had no
idea that music would take her around the world. For three of her collegiate
years she performed with gospel groups, traveling across the U.S. as well as in
Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Hong Kong and China. She then moved to Miami
in 1996 to begin her graduate studies. During this time she performed with "Mike
Suman's Swing City" and her own band "Simply Stellar" at festivals, hotels and
clubs throughout South Florida. In 2003 she moved to Pensacola to focus on the
next phase of her musical career-writing and recording her original music.
Under the guidance of producer Mark Bingham, who's worked with everyone from Dr.
John to the Blind Boys of Alabama to the Black Eyed Peas, she's assembled an
enviably experienced crew including pianist Warren Bernhardt (Steps Ahead, Jack
DeJohnette, Gerry Mulligan), drummer Gary Burke (Joe Jackson, Bob Dylan),
trumpeter Steven Bernstein (Roswell Rudd, Medeski Martin & Wood, Don Byron), and
her fellow Kansas City native, guitarist Steve Cardenas (Norah Jones, Madeleine
Peyroux, Paul Motian, Mark Isham).
A lifelong love of performing inspired by family and further fueled by the
completion of her album, have culminated in a desire to return to the touring
stage after a rebuilding period in the post-Hurricane Ivan year. Now based in
Pensacola, Florida, Robin is ready to follow the release of Daydream
with a festival and club scene tour in a way that will also leave the world
powerless to do anything but follow.
