Born in Pennsylvania, Robyn Bennett grew up surrounded by music. She started learning to play the piano at age 6, thanks to her grandmother who bought her a piano for her birthday, and then went on to sing in various choirs and jazz groups throughout high school. An avid dancer as well, Robyn studied ballet, jazz, tap, acro and modern dance. A triple threat, Robyn continued to study singing, dancing and acting and received a Bachelor of Arts from the prestigious Vassar College (New York) in 2001. Honing her skills in musical theater, she went on to study at New York University and gained experience in Off-Broadway productions such as “West Side Story”, “Carousel” and “South Pacific”.

Robyn moved to Paris in 2006 to join the cast of the musical "Cabaret" which played for 2 years at the famous Folies Bergeres theater. It was during this production that Robyn met the Paris-based jazz trombone player Ben Van Hille who had just finished his first album of original songs, "Suite Parisienne".

In 2010 they went on to join forces to record "Bang Bang", a remarkable first album that mixes post-war swing standards, Broadway classics and even some 60's pop gems, all miraculously reunited by a fresh, atypical sound.
