Robin Stanley BIO

Robin Stanley is a Canadian recording artist and musician from Vancouver Canada, and was mainly inspired by the British new wave/ punk music revival that happened at the end of the seventies.

Although a life long Beatles fan, the examples set by Ray Davies and Joe Strummer motivated Robin to put together his first band, where he fronted a number of groups that played at many downtown clubs during the eighties.

In the early 90's he moved to the suburbs and set up a home studio, where he became a multi-instrumentalist, recording eight track demos in his basement.

Robin is influenced by a wide range of pop, folk, blues, country and rock music.

He's been called the"lost romantic," and his songs reflect life's mysteries, heartbreak and rewards.

Robin contributed a song each to Unsound Vol 1 in 1998 and Burnt Marshmallows and Teeny Bikinis in 2000, both international indie releases.

He released his first album in 2004, MAD KINGDOM, and began reaching out to music fans around the world.

He also resumed live performances at smaller music venues in and around the Vancouver area.

2007 saw the release of his second album, CHRONIC EMPIRE, which was heard by a wider audience and received good reviews.

Robin's third album, COSMOLOGY, was released in 2012 with much excitement and great music press.

The featured single "Make Up Your Mind" spent three months on the American Adult Contemporary radio chart that summer.

Robin's enchanting video performance of "A Heart Without A Home," and the newly released video for "Make Up Your Mind" from COSMOLOGY can be seen on YouTube, the links provided on this website.

Robin's music continues to be heard in many countries around the world particularly in Europe, North America and Australia.
