Robyn Harris
Robyn Harris
Robyn Harris is an up and coming Indie Pop artist. Born and raised in Denton, Texas, she made the move to Nashville, Tennessee in 2012. Robyn brings a quirky and unique musical perspective to the Indie Pop genre. She was one of four artists chosen to be a part of the prestigious 2015 Belmont University Commercial Showcase. As a young girl she learned to play piano, and in 2012 she met her soulmate, the Ukulele, which has inspired such songs as "Ghost" and "Doctor."

A confident, radiant Los Angeles native, Kirsten Arian brought her ethereal pop sound from the west coast to the Country Music Capital Of The World, showcasing the sound of Nashville is moving progressively towards a new era. “Moving to Nashville allowed me to fall in love with the art of music and the incredible community behind it. A lot of people would laugh at me for moving to Nashville from LA to do pop music, but there is this huge buzz happening with pop in Nashville. Instead of being lost in LA, I get to be someone who helps build the pop community here, which is a thrill for me.”

She is, put simply, effervescent! “The goal is for my songs to sound like Rose soda: upbeat, light, classy and fun,” Kirsten says of her own music.

In her first Nashville venture, Arian beat out 400 contestants in Nashville’s Music City Breakthrough talent competition, establishing herself in a world of noise as a frequency to tune into. She signed to RareSpark Media Group and hit the studio to record her debut album Higher Than Heaven, most of which she wrote at age 18. Her debut garnered the attention of MTV who promised, “You may not have heard of Kirsten Arian yet, but, trust me, you will soon.” The album led to features on iHeartRadio’s 107.5 The River and Nashville’s independent radio station, Lightning 100. Popdust called the album “…one of the most alluring projects in all of pop in 2015.”

Opportunity knocked for Arian to write a song for The LEGO Batman Movie. She hit the ground running, completing the song “Invincible” in just 3 hours with her Australian co-writer and producer, Lindsay Rimes. “Invincible” comes out on The LEGO Batman Movie soundtrack on February 3, and the film’s theatrical release is on February 10.

Though she’s achieved great success in a little time, Arian remains grateful, counting her blessings, one of the biggest of which is that she gets to be a music artist.

“In the last few years of my life, I’ve felt more alive than I’ve ever been because of the risks I’ve taken and deciding to follow the spirit wherever it takes me,” she says. “It has been terrifying at times, but ultimately it’s led me to the greatest places I could have ever imagined. I want to help take other people to those places and remind them to be free. Life doesn’t have to be boring. Everyday can be some sort of adventure if you let it.”

After a flourishing 2016, filled with Jeff’s move to Nashville from NYC, a sophomore EP release (called Survive), an east coast tour, music video premiere, regular radio rotation, a successful online cover video series, and a handful of local performances in Nashville, Jeff went charging into 2017, performing at SXSW as part of The Nashville House and traveling to Sundance Film Festival for a unique songwriting showcase. The rest of the year was spent entirely in studios, reaproaching and reinventing his sound and songs for a brand new chapter of music. Through months of exploration with renowned Nashville producers, exploring a more synth-based, pop-centered soundscape, Jeff discovered a whole new universe for his songwriting, which brings us to now. 2018 is Jeff’s year to share his evolution from his piano-centric, singer/songwriter roots into a more confident, complete alt-pop powerhouse. First up to bat is his CAGES EP, due March 2018, introduced first by his single “Roam”, perfectly capturing the triumphant push forward in Jeff’s journey.
