“Robyn Hayle’s delivery is disarmingly direct and speech-like, so you don’t notice at first how musical her phrasing it, but it gradually dawns on you, just as you notice how good her original songs are. The backing is lively, too, with fine solo spots from trumpeter Bryden Baird and guests Kevin Breit and Toots Thielemans.” Sutart Broomer – Toronto Life / CODA
Robyn Hayle’s, a Montreal-born, Toronto-based jazz singer/composer has worked on Sesame Street and did voiceover work for the acclaimed Today’s Special, an internationally popular series on which Robyn played the computer TXL Series Four. She has worked with musical heavyweights Elliot Randall (Steely Dan) and Nick Mason (Pink Floyd). But after a hiatus she is back with a cd titled an Arms Full of Roses.
“The roses are a metaphor for the sweetness of life,” said Robyn in a recent interview. “I’m grateful. I’m grateful for the opportunity to do what I love again. As long as I can keep doing that and I have the chance to share it, I have arms full of roses.”
