5 Quick Questions with Robyn & Ryleigh

While we were in London, ON for Canadian Country Music Week we had a chance to sit down with Robyn Gillespie of Robyn & Ryleigh for a little hang out. Unfortunately Ryleigh wasn’t able to make the trip after a car accident at home in BC, but Robyn brought her in “photo on a stick” form, and we know everyone was sending healing thoughts back to her.

Since we had Robyn though, we hit her with 5 quick questions… and here they are!

Q1: If you’re on a long road trip and can only have 1 album in the car, what CD are you choosing?

Robyn: Anything by Miranda Lambert

We know that she didn’t give us a specific album, but we’re willing to accept this answer since Miranda doesn’t have a greatest hits offering, and each of her album brings a bunch of great songs to the table.

Q2: What is the 1st song you remember knowing all the words to?

Robyn: Long Time Gone by the Dixie Chicks

It’s crazy to think that the song is almost 15 years old now… but it’s true, and it’s still a fun track to sing along with!

Q3: What is your #1 hobby when you’re not working on music?

Robyn: Playing guitar

So Robyn kind of failed on this question, but she answered so honestly that we found it hard to hold it against her and make her go again.

Q4: What is the one thing you need to have with you when you walk into a writing session?

Robyn: A Cool Lime Refresher from Starbucks

She was very specific about the flavour of her drink, making sure that we wrote it down correctly… which makes us wonder if Robyn would write with us as long as we showed up with a drink, maybe.

Q5: What artist do you think people should be paying more attention to than they are right now?

Robyn: Chris Buck Band

We met with Chris on the weekend, and we’ve heard some of the band’s music, so we aren’t going to argue. Robyn also added that people should be looking out for and supporting their local musicians as well… and we are all in on that advice too!
