Robynn Shayne is a self-made artist. Her brother Shane was the musician in the family and after his passing at the early age of 20 Robynn taught herself how to play the guitar a few years later. With a voice like candy she now had the guitar skills to start writing and performing. Robynn was influenced early on by the likes of Dolly Parton, Merle Haggard, Jessi Colter, and Waylon Jennings.
After moving to Austin, TX, the "Live Music Capital of the World", in 2013, Robynn was inspired to write more of her own original songs and hit the music scene harder than ever. In no time she was playing at some of the most iconic venues in Austin, landed a sponsorship with Lone Star Beer, and opened for Pat Green, Gary P. Nunn, Walt Wilkins, and Cory Morrow. Almost 2 years to the day, after seeing Kacey Musgraves perform at Moody Theater/ACL Live, and dreaming of one day playing that famous stage, she won an iHEART Radio contest and got to step foot on that very stage, opening for Easton Corbin, Jerod Neiman, The Raging Idiots, and Waterloo Revival for the Austin Country Celebration.
Robynn's 4th studio album, "Let's Get This Show On The Road" will be released Spring of 2020!
