Hypnotism? Folk Magic? Strange Appalachianitis? I'm a stone-cold mamacita With an ex-pat hippie papa We got a lot of terra cotta And we're a long way from home These lyrics from one of Robin Aigner's best-loved songs serve as a good introduction into her world. With a style that's equal parts folk, roots and Americana with an urban kick, Robin's music-featuring her warm, sensual voice, sweetly finger-picked guitar playing and rich imagery-lulls you in, holds your attention and takes you a long way from home. Is it hypnotism? Some kinda folk magic? Whatever it is, it sure works. Her songs, while partly grounded in that old-timey, classic folk tradition, also offer something completely unique and compelling. Her arresting vocals, intelligent wit and wordplay, and hook-y melodies assure that listeners are humming her tunes on their subway rides. Her songs celebrate lost cowboys, cryin' outlaws, lonely troubadours. 'Robin is a well-crafted songwriter and charming performer on the rise. I am interested to see what she comes up with next.' -Lach, NY AntiFolk Founder 'Aigner manages to make the compass needle on a familiar folk song quiver, suggesting that something unexpected-and interesting-lurks nearby.' -Larry Parnass, Northampton Gazette Robin's music has been played on WDVX, SCAD, WETS, WFMU and Radio Crystal Blue (Internet), among others.
