We had the good fortune of connecting with Penelope Robin and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Penelope, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
I was born and raised so far in Miami, FL. My dad is a music producer and my house has always been filled with musicians and amazingly talented artists. This gave me huge inspiration to pursue music and singing as an actual career and so far I think it has greatly impacted who I am today.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am so excited to share my new music with all my fans and friends. I started writing and singing when I was 7 years old, and during the past 6 years I have really grown as a musician and songwriter. I feel like my music has grown up with me and this new chapter is all about expressing myself in ways I have never done before. I love music more than anything, and even though getting out there and promoting yourself can be challenging, I know that when the passion and dedication are there the results will come.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Oh wow! That’s a fun one….Miami is so amazing in so many ways! I definitely would take him or her to the beach first…and then we would go get some yummy food. A trip to Versailles in Calle Ocho to experience traditional Cuban food and see the area is a must. A visit to Design District and Wynwood is also in the itinerary πŸ™‚ if we had more time I think a road trip down to the Florida Keys is super fun as well, and if they are into art and architecture we would definitely swing by the Perez Art Museum and have a nice lunch there πŸ™‚

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Definitely my family is my greatest inspiration and motivation. They believe in me so much and seeing how they work so hard to achieve their dreams is a big reason I push myself harder and harder each day!
