Robyn Sherwell is a London-based singer-songwriter. She was raised on the island of Guernsey. Her early musical background was in classical music, singing in choirs and playing a range of instruments before she began writing her own songs. She first attracted attention from record labels after posting covers on YouTube, and her early releases garnered support from Jo Whiley, Lauren Laverne and Huw Stevens. She was quickly welcomed on to the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury Festival in 2015, with her debut album following in 2016. Produced by David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything), the album features the empowering tribal single “Islander”, an ode to her homeland, and her spellbinding cover of Fleetwood Mac’s 1975 classic, “Landslide”. Reviewers declared Sherwell’s eponymous record “The first flowering of a significant new voice” (The Guardian), and “A record of dark beauty buoyed by its pop elements” (DrunkenWereWolf), establishing her as a fresh standout voice in the realm of confessional electro-pop.
After a four-year hiatus, during which time she became a mother, Robyn has returned, rejuvenated, with three stunning singles released in succession in the autumn of 2020: "Where Do We Go From Here", "Two Weeks", and "Sand In My Shoes”, the latest of which is a beautiful musical love letter to her home island.
Her forthcoming EP "Where Do We Go From Here" is out on 11th December 2020, and is available to pre-save now.
