Following the success of her recent hit “Mister Mister”, which was featured in the 2011 London Film Festival hit “Junkhearts”, singer-songwriter Robyn Sherwell now has her eyes set on the mainstream.
Her sound sits somewhere in the vast space between the likes of Ben Howard and Ellie Goulding, a sound which she called nu-folk-soul.
Fresh from performing at the Olympic Park this summer as part of Emerging Icons, her catchy melodies are now being showcased on the international stage as part of the New Song Contest.
Robyn is representing London and the UK in the contest which looks for the best new music in the world with the winner being crowed in the live final in New York towards the close of October.
After impressing industry professionals with her quirky songwriting abilities and refreshingly original collaborations, covering SBTRKT’S “Hold On” and Ben Howard’s “The Fear”, Robyn entered the New Song Contest performing her latest single “Heart”, which she also performed backstage at the London Olympics as part of Emerging Icons:
If successful in the New Song competition, Robyn could get the opportunity to record an album with producer Lestyn Polson.
