Robyn Bennett is an artist based in the United States. She is a Daughter of a university professor, Robyn Bennett grew up in Pennsylvania (USA). Music and dance have always been a big part of her life. She started jazz and ballet lessons at only 3 years old, piano lessons at 6, trumpet at 10 and she sang regularly in different choirs. Her early influences were eclectic, including Frank Sinatra, Michael Jackson, Ray Charles, Fleetwood Mac, Harry Connick Jr., Ella Fitzgerald, Willie Nelson, Billy Holiday, and Billy Joel.

Robyn’s love of music, dance, and the stage led her to musicals, performing in productions of West Side Story, Carousel, and South Pacific. After high school, she left her small, rural town and headed for New York University where she studied in the musical theater program for two years. Having a hard time finding balance in the big city, seeking out calm and open spaces, she then continued her studies at the prestigious Vassar College where she graduated in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts.


Having always been attracted to France and French culture, Robyn packed her bags and went to Paris to get a Master’s degree in French literature at the Sorbonne. In 2006, she settled definitively in Paris and a new adventure began. She joined the cast of the musical Cabaret (Dir. Sam Mendes) which played for 2 years at the famous Folies Bergère theater. Dance captain of the cast, she also played the role of Texas and understudied the lead role of Sally Bowles.

It was during this production that Robyn met the trombone player, Ben van Hille. The chemistry they had together was instantaneous. The energy and emotion they shared on stage were infectious, and they decided that they had to make music together. 

After two self-produced albums comprised mostly of jazz standards Bang Bang (2009) and Live Until You Die (2011), they put their songwriting skills together to create their first album of original songs. The Wait (2013), a mix of blues, funk, country music, and jazz is a real success helping to establish Robyn Bennett in the “big leagues”.  The Song is You (2016) confirms this status. Summer 2019, Robyn heads to Algiers Point, one of the oldest neighborhoods in New Orleans, to write and compose a new opus. Soaking up the soul of the Big Easy, Glow (2019) will be recorded and produced in Paris nine months later. The beautiful redhead spreads her infectious music, catchy melodies, and touching lyrics with her exceptional voice, both powerful and sensual.

Robyn Bennett is really fulfilling a life-long dream to rap with 3 albums and 1 EP under her belt.

Robyn Bennett is inviting you to let it go and reconnect with what really matters, “Take it Slow” is the antidote to this fast-paced world we are living in: chill urban drums, smooth horns and vintage keyboards are the backdrops to a melodic, soaring refrain and a verse that oscillates between rap and spoken-word.

Lift your head up, put it down, take a breath and look around, it’s not really all that bad we just need some time to reconnect, to decompress to take it slow and just let it go ...

Robyn Bennett works best on Funk, Soul Chill, Good vibes, Groovy, Positive.
