"We’re particularly using it for vocoded / harmonised style effects and we’ve been able to tweak it to pretty much match the studio sound we’ve been using for the last 3 years so it’s been quite a handy piece of gear!" (Robyn’s technical manager, Gavin Ellis, about the TC-Helicon’s VoiceLive 2)

Swedish recording artist Robyn started her career at the age of sixteen with hits like “Do you really want me” and “Show me love”. Today, she is still going strong and has achieved a status as an international star. Robyn is definitely not “dancing on her own”.

At the beginning of her career, Robyn seemed destined to be the next Swedish pop princess, but over the years she has said goodbye to this sugarcoated image and said hello to a more hard-hitting electronic sound. In 2004, Robyn left her old label, as she wanted to liberate her music artistically.

She started her own label, “Konichiwa Records”, and in 2010, Robyn released her “Body Part Trilogy”, which has been a huge success worldwide. The “Body Part Trilogy’ showed Robyn’s ability to mix electronica and heartfelt pop, and hits like “Dancing on my own”, “Hang with me”, “Indestructible” and “Girlfriend” are great indicators of Robyn’s ability to make pop music that is both creative and catchy.

In 2010, the hit “Dancing on my own” became Robyn’s first number one hit in Sweden, and her fourth top ten hit in both the UK and the US. Later The Guardian and Slant Magazine rated it the best song of 2010, and Pitchfork Media ranked it 4th in their Top 100 Tracks of 2010. In 2011 she won the prizes for “Best Live Act”, “Best Artist” and “Best Song” at the Danish P3 Guld Music Awards. The same year she appeared as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live, performing the songs “Call Your Girlfriend” and “Dancing On My Own”. Robyn supported Coldplay on their 2012 tour, opening the show in Dallas, Houston, Tampa, Miami, Atlanta, Charlotte, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.
