Singer-songwriter Robin Lewis has an intoxicating, rich voice that will transport you to a place where your favorite memories and deepest feelings live. After 3 years in Asheville, this Boulder, Colorado native found herself yearning for the place she called home and returned to Fort Collins to be inspired by the people she loves the most, her growing family and friends. Today she shares her latest single, Deep Blue Water, written in the middle of the night in her bedroom on a classical guitar she has owned since the age of 11. “It was a teary eyed, heartfelt moment I will always remember,” Lewis shares.
“I was going through a really difficult time in Asheville, but I felt it was all in my benefit to help me grow and evolve as a human. This song is about finding light in the darkness, welcoming pain and everything in life as a gift for our own evolution.” Lewis not only had a personal development creating this track, but also emerged from a cocoon of sorts as a breakthrough artist sharing her new music, a new brand and voice, a new website, alongside a new team including manager Jeff Swager of Symbiotic Events and Katie Fox, owner of the digital media agency Blooming Footprint.
Spreading her new wings in the midst of a Pandemic was literally just what the doctor ordered. Lewis proudly accepted an in-person, socially distant, COVID compliant gig opening for a private party won in a Conscious Alliance auction featuring Bill & Jilian Nershi at the Boulder Theater. It was a night she will always remember and was delighted to find out this would be a recurring opportunity. She did it again a few weeks later, opening for headliner Todd Park Mohr of Big Head Todd & The Monsters with raving compliments and instant new fans. “Robin is just a breath of fresh air during a time when we all need it. Her voice and lyrics are magic. We can’t wait to see her on the stage again soon.” said Justin Levy, Executive Director of Conscious Alliance. Another Conscious Alliance auction is kicking off this holiday season, and up and coming Lewis will keep warming up the intimate crowds for Colorado best and most well known artists.
In Deep Blue Water we are served up Lewis’s favorite lyric, "How could you find the stars if it weren't for the night", where she reminds us of our link to the greater universe, and the balance of light and dark. This light and dark theme prominently weaves through the track along with the constant connection of the Earth and of course love. This all embodies her notable sound, combining soulful vocals, flowing between styles and moods, layered with elegant, finger-picking. Her music guides hearts to beat to the same rhythm and is centered around vulnerable moments of the human experience.
Lewis’s first full album, Earth & Sky, will drop on December 11, 2020 in advance of the holiday season and true to her aesthetic, will be a deep dive into the big picture themes in life, and the interconnected nature of it all. Lewis has toured the country with Free Range Pickens (with Taylor Shuck of Wood Belly), Earth & Sky (with Tobias of Whippoorwill), Cedarwing (with Hope Medford of Nahko and Medicine for the People) and received an honorable mention in the Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour competition, alongside songwriters from across the nation.
