Robin Stine has performed across the U.S., Canada, South America, Asia and Europe delighting audiences with her personal brand of genre-bending jazz and original songwriting. In Summer 2012 she performed in and acted as Musical Director in France for the original rock opera La Caroline. She then travelled to Sicily to perform in the city of Bivona for the Serata Jazz Program. Joining Robin were Sicilian and Polish jazz musicians in this city's first jazz night. In November 2012 she appeared on stage with multi Grammy award-winning composer and arranger Danilo Perez of Panama in his "Tribute to Latin Jazz" concert as part of the 25th annual Great American Jazz Series. Stine also recently performed as guest artist with both the University of North Florida Orchestra and Jazz Ensembles and at the University of West Florida. Earlier in 2012 she performed at Jacksonville's Celebration of Women in Arts along with special performances with award-winning violinist/songwriter Rebecca Zappen.

Robin launched her self-released album Daydream in 2005 with Piety Street Recording Studios of New Orleans and Millbrook Recording Studios in New York. With producer Mark Bingham, who's worked with everyone from Dr. John to the Blind Boys of Alabama to the Black Eyed Peas, she assembled an enviably experienced crew to record with her including pianist Warren Bernhardt (Steps Ahead, Jack DeJohnette, Gerry Mulligan), drummer Gary Burke (Joe Jackson, Bob Dylan), trumpeter Steven Bernstein (Sex Mob, Roswell Rudd, Medeski Martin & Wood, Don Byron), and her fellow Kansas City native, guitarist Steve Cardenas (Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux, Paul Motian, Mark Isham).

The Independent News described her album as "a truly unique sound infusing traditional jazz with a youthful, bluesy folk vibe". Indie Launchpad called it "an exceptional album from an exceptional artist". Daydream is a sleek collection of a dozen original jazzy, bluesy numbers that immediately sound like comfortable standards. The melancholy title track “Daydream”, the only co-write on the album, was written with Chris Whiteman at the University of Miami. The album's other originals were written over a six-month period while Robin rebuilt her home in the wake of Hurricane Ivan. “These songs are very personal. They were gifts from ‘the muses’ of genuine emotion, faith and hope.”

Her songs have been featured on network television shows such as The Today Show and The Young and the Restless, with an upcoming feature on a USA Network television series. Robin's recent awards include the Just Plain Folks Songwriting Competition and Jazz/Blues Vocalist of the Year for the Independent News. Her music has been featured on numerous radio shows across the U.S., Europe, and Asia including Prezemek Draheim's Blues Radio Show in Poland as he featured female jazz singers, Rundfunk Berlin Brandenburg in Germany, and public radio in Italy. Robin regularly appears in Florida both as a featured guest artists and as bandleader with her own combo.
