Fresh from gracing stages at both The London Olympics and Paralympics, Robyn Sherwell is taking her often heart-wrenching music across the capital with a number of shows throughout September and October.
She appeared at the games as part of Emerging Icons and took the time to record a live acoustic video for her track ‘Heart’.
Her music is achingly personal and utterly addictive, and Robyn has always worked hard to write from the heart. The great thing
about the way that she records and performs is that she explores all of the essential and identifiable life themes of love and heartbreak, belonging and loneliness.
She has a range of songs that use this formula, including ‘Mister Mister’ and ‘My Hand’ – which are focused around emotion, love and
affection. The latter is a definite standout (other than ‘Heart’) that speaks volumes about Sherwell’s character and personal strength. ‘Mister Mister’ was also handpicked for inclusion as background music in the 2011 London Film Festival hit ‘Junkhearts’.
Following such an honour, it was recently announced that she will be an international regional finalist in the New Song Contest representing London and the UK.
