In 2017, post heartbreak, she turned to songwriting as a form of expression, where she realized that her voice was (somewhere in-between etherial and outlandish). Her debut EP, “Lost//Forward”, released under the alias R O B I, is a collection of 6 progressively less-sad break-up songs and was made a few producer friends she had previously worked with as a dancer.
Music has always been an inspiration for her work as a choreographer. By making “Lost//Forward” she realized that working with her voice was equally as intriguing as working with her body. While her career in choreography is expanding, she continues to fall in love with music as a form of self expression and a way to connect with others.
R O B I is polyamorous music project in that she works with a small handful of musical collaborators, most commonly Rahm Silverglade, Isaac Middleton, and Gunner Sixx. Her musical inspirations range from Bjork, Sylvan Esso, Dirty Projectors, Grimes, Billie Eilish, and Julianna Barwick. As a new artist, she creates music that is representative of her own voice.
