Robbin Kapsalis was born on the Southside of Chicago and soaked up the sounds of the legendary blues city before moving to be raised in Atlanta, Georgia.
Featuring a powerful and commanding voice that is steeped in the greasy and dirty but still emotionally affecting side of blues, 
Robbin has all the understanding of the classic phrasing, textures, rhythm and attitude of the music. 
She adds something fresh and sassy to the mix too - so is very much rooted in our time.
And as a charismatic front woman, she is second to none with an energy level that is unrivalled in the blues scene today.
Think Sharon Jones of the Dap Kings meets Koko Taylor and you might have an idea of the talent level on display here.
