Saturday, September 19th: Robin Grant & The Standard
September 19, 2020 @ 7:30 pm – 11:30 pm
Sensitive storytelling, in the opinion of many, is the most significant test of a singer. If that is the case, then a song has found a friend in Robin Grant.
A native of Chattanooga, Robin has been delighting local audiences for many years. With the recent release of her first critically acclaimed album, “Good Girls” she is now garnering national acclaim. Good Girls is a collection of original jazz songs reminscent of the all-time great standards. The album debuted on iTunes jazz charts in the number four slot! She will be debuting her second album on November 17th, titled “Off Label” that will be streaming on all platforms.
Robin’s soulful stylings take her listeners back to the great Tinpan Alley days of the 1920’s 30’s and 40’s, but it’s with an edgy delivery and sizzle that resonates with the youthful in body & spirit. Her live shows showcase her flaming vocals throughout her diverse repertoire of all-time-favorites mixed with her popular original compositions.
Robin began her music career at an early age. She developed her performance ability through classical training, by earning her Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance and by embracing musical theater. She later transitioned into jazz with the help of her mentor, bassist Wilfred Middlebrooks. Middlebrooks is also a native of Chattanooga and toured for many years with Ella Fitzgerald.
Robin’s meticulously phrased singing and controlled but inescapable intensity is supported by her talented band, The Standard. Over and over they have proven their ability to captivate and move any audience.
