Robin Bienemann is a singer-songwriter based in Chicago. His wickedly funny and poignant original songs mix contemporary themes with the earliest forms of Jazz, Blues and Country guitar from Charley Patton to Les Paul. Robin’s performances combine dry humor and sophisticated songwriting with a deep sense of history. At his musical core is a reverence for the guitar as an instrument to accompany songs and as a vessel to express the American psyche in all of its strange beauty and complexity.
Robin has shared the stage with Dan Hicks, Christine Lavin, Junior Brown & Southern Culture on the Skids. He performs regularly solo and as a duo with his wife Jenny Bienemann. With his duo Twang Bang he toured the U.S. and Japan.
