It has been said so many times that life is all about the ride and such is the standard for singer/songwriter Livi Robins. Livi was raised in South East Queensland on a diverse diet of Steve Winwood, Paul Simon and Dolly Parton.
“From before I knew I could sing, I would imagine what it was like to sing on a big stage. My mum had a Dolly Parton record that I used to love to play. It was always easy for me to sing with a natural twang in my voice. My sister and I would record ourselves singing, but for the most part my singing was behind closed doors. Occasionally someone would hear me croon and encourage me to sing for them,” says Livi Robins.
As time passed she unearthed her own flavour and taste for music such as the vocal brilliance of Mariah Carey, the blues soul of The Badloves and the stage genius of Madonna. In 2010 Livi scored a spot as a finalist in X-Factor providing her with the chance to explore her musical personality while travelling overseas. This journey left her with an overall sense of achievement and was in perfect keeping with her passion for being around interesting people and her desire to absorb as much as she can.
Three years later, Livi is more musically developed, her range of influences is still broad but more reflective of the direction she is headed. Beautifully presented with a voice to match, Livi will capture you with her sweet sounding vocals. A fusion of Contemporary Country, Pop and R’n’B makes her unique spin on contemporary covers a refreshing change. Having found her style you can see that Livi is channelling her own brand of “Saddle Pop”.
For the Livi Robins Duo, Livi has teamed up with guitarist and musical director of her band, Shaun Wegener. Shaun has been playing as a freelance guitarist for many years for many popular artists in the country music industry. He compliments Livi perfectly in a duo that has become a popular Sunshine Coast act.
