“Glow” was conceived on a porch in Algiers Point, New Orleans and born nine months later on Rue du
Faubourg Saint Denis in Paris. Soaking up the sounds, sights, smells and vibes of the Big Easy, Robyn
Bennett and Ben van Hille start writing, recording and documenting their impressions during a monthlong
stay. They discover a joined desire to go back to their roots, to make music together that speaks
from the soul and rings true in the listener’s ear.
« Seeing and hearing people spilling their guts out every night with their voices and their horns,
stripped down and vulnerable, believing in the power of music and plugging away day after day to
connect with people, well that’s a pretty inspiring thing. » Robyn
Back in Paris, Robyn and Ben finish composing “Glow”, drawing on their experiences, writing what
they know and what is close to their heart. They also want to mix things up and give some fresh
blood to the band, bringing in a new rhythm section : Davy Honnet, a young French drummer brings
modernity and drive; Julien Omé, coming from a rock/folk background, adds new depth and sounds;
the Mauritian, Gino Chantoiseau and his double bass create a solid base; and the keyboards of
Laurian Daire complete the rhythm section adding a whole new dimension to the band. The explosive
horn section is comprised of Xavier Sibre on saxophones and Ben van Hille on trombone, who is also
the arranger for the band.
With a strong desire to take the recording process « to the next level » as compared to the bands’
previous two albums, they decide to record at the great Question de Son studio in Paris with Frédéric
Vectol (Babyshambles, Gregory Porter, Elliot Murphy) overseeing the recording and mixing. The
magic is instantly present, and the result meets all their expectations and more. Robyn can best
describe in her own words the essence of Glow:
« This is really a labor of love. These are the songs that I’ve always wanted to write and now I finally
can. You know when you’re with someone and they just make you feel like anything is possible, like
you can say and do what you always wanted to, you can just be you, and there’s nothing more
beautiful than that? Well, that is Glow. » Robyn
