Robyn Biography

Known primarily in Sweden and Europe, Robyn gained fame as a singer and songwriter with such albums as Robyn is Here (1995), My Truth (1999) and Don’t Stop the Music (2002).

Robyn has accomplished a lot in her long career. As a girl, she was performing at a professional level, and by the time she was a teen, she had attracted enough attention in the Swedish pop music industry to land a recording contract. Between the mid-1990s and mid-2000s, she released four albums: Robyn is Here (1995), My Truth (1999), Don’t Stop the Music (2002), and Robyn (2005). Robyn even started her own label, Konichiwa Records, in order to get the control over her music that she had longed for on her earlier releases.

The closer you get to Robyn’s Swedish home, the more famous she is. In Sweden, she’s widely known and she’s had significant exposure throughout Europe, especially in her early career. Distribution problems with her middle albums, unfortunately, left American music fans thinking that Robyn was but a flash in the late 1990s pan. However, the success of singles like “With Every Heartbeat” from her 2005 album has revived her fame both at home and abroad.
