Music audiences around the world have seen and heard Janet Robin’s incredible guitar work as a former featured touring member of the Lindsey Buckingham Band (Fleetwood Mac), Meredith Brooks Band, and most recently Air Supply.
Her abilities as a guitarist have garnered the admiration of many in the music industry including Michelle Shocked who called Robin “one of the best guitarists in the country: male or female.”She has shared the stage most recently with the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, Colin Hay (Men At Work), Monte Montgomery, Maia Sharp, Heart, Kelly Joe Phelps,Catie Curtis,Leon Russell, and many more to name a few. With the help of her dedicated fan base, Robin was able to raise the funds completely from her fans ($20,000)for her latest studio effort, “Everything Has Changed”, produced by John Carter Cash, son of Johnny Cash and June Carter at Cash Cabin Studio outside of Nashville.
Having already self-released four previous solo records, this new album from the talented songwriter/guitarist bridges the gap between passionate acoustic music and gutsy rock n’ roll showing off her steller guitar playing. The 10 song collection showcases the stunning range of this gifted songwriter, singer, and guitarist and includes 2 co-writes with Maia Sharp (Dixie Chicks, Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood) and a mesmerizing cover of Roy Orbison’s “Dream Baby.”
Introduced to Hypertension Music in Germany by friend and fellow musician Colin Hay (Men At Work), Robin recently signed a European licensing and booking deal with the German company who released Everything Has Changed all over Europe. The cd was released in the USA through Big Fish Media.
Ever the road warrior, Robin plays upwards of 150 per year, focusing on the East Coast, Texas, West Coast and many tours in Europe. In addition to being an artist, Robin is also a respected clinician for Line 6 and is endorsed by Taylor Guitars, Martin Guitars, Fender Guitars, Seymour Duncan, Audix,Dunlop,and Alfred Music Publishing among others.
