Forget The Girl, Ryness

Robin's interest in drumming can be traced back to when he was 6, after his parents gave him a toy drumset for his birthday. The set didn't last long as it was destroyed very quickly but the seeds were planted and his course set. Robin pursued his musical ambitions at Berklee College of Music and has been active in the music scene ever since.

Currently based in New York, Robin can be found rockin' out behind the set with his various bands which include Ryness, a rock group fronted by current Broadway star Bryce Ryness (Hair/Leap of Faith/NBC's Peter Pan Live) and Forget The Girl, a Boston based rock group. He is also very active in the Broadway scene, having performed with the cast of Hair, Forever Deadward (A Twilight Musical Parody), and assuming the role of drum playing Myron Spoonapple in the Off Broadway production of Dear Edwina. When not behind the kit, Robin can be found engineering, mixing and producing in the studio and running live sound at the world famous Iridium Jazz Club in NYC for various artists.
