Welcome to the Robyn Carlsson Main Page
Robyn, who's real name is Robin Carlsson, was born on the southern
island of Stockholm, Sweden, in 1979, and spent most of her early
childhook on tour with her parents' travelling theater group. She wrote her
first song, "In My Heart," in sadness over her parents divorce when she
was 11 years old and has been writing songs ever since.
Since Robyn's parents are divorced, she lives with one of
them each week. She claims it works since they're living so close. She thinks being a
child with divorced parents is hard, though she's not alone; 30% of the children in
Sweden's got divorced parents.
She says that it's good to have idols, but one must have his or her
own style. Robyn mostly listens to American Soul; her idols include
Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Brandy and Janet Jackson.
The recording of the album "Robyn Is Here" began on Easter of 1995, when
Robyn was still in ninth grade. Though she's not currently studying, she'll continue
school in the future.
Robyn is looking forward to her forthcoming tour with pleasure;
she loves to travel by bus and to live with people 24 hours a day.
