A global pandemic isn’t stopping Robyn
They say country music is just three chords and the truth, and it was Robyn Ottolini’s unabashed honesty that resonated with fans and led to a record deal.
A global pandemic isn’t stopping Robyn Ottolini from getting into the hearts and homes of people around the world. Born and raised in Uxbridge, Ontario, the up-and-coming country singer-songwriter now has more than 60 million global streams to her name. After going viral on TikTok with her hit “F-150,” Robyn’s career as a U.S. major label artist was launched in October 2020 after signing a record deal with Warner Music Nashville. Having recently performed at the 2021 Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Awards, Robyn is looking forward to a new year full of new music and new opportunities.
As Robyn says, “There are people out there who need me to sing songs for them. I’ve always hoped my music could help people, and I’m really glad it’s working. It’s why I write my music.”
