Robin Bessier

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. ~Brent Black, Critical Jazz

Robin Bessier is a standup lady who knows her stuff and who is completely able to share all of that with us

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
