Robin Cook is a cutting-edge urban pop artist. Currently working on building her catalogue of original songs to put together the release of her first EP, Robin is sure to turn a few heads; and volume dials up. A mash up of happy pop tunes, aggressive beats, and a touch of what she calls “rhyming,” her melodies will hypnotize you as her lyrics bring you to a whole new world. Born in Bethesda, MD and raised in Fairfax, VA, Robin was the wild child in school who jumped from all heights of the playground: and landed every time. Acting and writing from the age of 6, Robin was a published poet by the age of 12.
Robin Cook comes from an artistic family which encouraged her to pursue the arts from a very young age. She learned to read music as a child when she took piano and cello lessons at the age of 8. As a teen, she enjoyed dancing, choreography, and fashion design, choreographing her own dance routine for the talent show at 9, and creating her own clothing line at 13. She traveled on her own to New York City at 14 years old, going home from the IMTA convention as the 3rd runner up for her monologue performance in her age category. It was at this time Robin began her classical music training, learning to perform in several languages, including English (mother tongue), Spanish, Italian, French, German, Latin, Afrikaans, and Hebrew.
In April 2007 Robin traveled to New York City to record her first song "Kiss Me" with producer/songwriter Mike "G" Guerriero of the Billboard #1 Dance Hit "Kiss the Sky" by Danielle Bollinger. "Kiss Me" eventually became the title track for the independent film A Bitter Kiss, a CineArts International Production. In 2008, Robin earned the title “Miss Capital Area Model” while modeling for the Barone Modeling Agency, for whom she modeled such products as Vera Wang Princess. It was also in this year that Robin recorded two more songs, “Close to You” and “Let Go,” at Cue Recording Studios in Falls Church, VA. Later that same year, she moved to NYC to attend Five Towns College and further her music education and career. She also dreams of opening a storefront to promote her jewelry line, and eventually move into clothing design.
Robin has performed in venues and events in both New York City and Washington, DC, including Jammin Java, the Nuyorican Poets Café, the Village Lantern, and the Delancey, to name a few. She has performed at events such as Sephora’s Beauty Event in Walt Whitman Mall on Long Island in New York, the Suffolk Coalition Against Domestic Violence for their Youth Prevention Film Festival at the Patchogue Theatre on Long Island, and for St. Balderick’s Fundraiser for Kids with Cancer at the Jericho Jewish Center on Long Island. Robin is currently living in Los Angeles, CA working on building her song catalogue to choose songs for her upcoming EP. Robin Cook's first single is titled "Lucky Star." It was from writing this song that she developed a nickname for her fans, "Stars."
