With a vocal style described by fans as “delectable, soothing, angelic, sassy and lilting... Bessier's diverse musical background - which has included singing in Afro-Cuban drumming ensembles, a cappella groups, Latin big bands, small jazz ensembles, gospel choirs, classical and folk groups and musical theater - informs both her vocal choices and her songwriting.
Whether swinging on a standard, floating on a bossa, or offering up a ballad, Robin's crystal clear tones and lyrical, conversational style are delivered within a strong rhythmic groove.
Robin Bessier has a voice that sparkles, clear and lucid as a flowing stream bubbling with vivacity...Bessier's own Right Here, Right Now reminds me of some of Flora Purim's old catalogue, bursting with joy even when wistful.
~Mark Turner, FAME Review
God Bless The Child and Prelude To A Kiss are tunes that can simply eat up a vocalist of lesser talent, Robin Bessier owns these tunes with impeccable phrasing, timing and that special connectivity with the average listener to really seal the deal.
