Robin Bessier 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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
