Robyn Springer’s voice -a melodic first alto- is like the heartbeat of Charlotte: never rushed and strumming to its own soothing rhythm. Springer, a native New Yorker, has lived in Charlotte since 2003 and performs regularly as a cover artist at The Ritz-Carlton in Uptown. A graduate of Manhattan’s famed High School of Performing Arts, she began her professional career singing jingles for commercials and doing background vocals for singers. The songstress talks to UPTOWN about touring around the world but first, gives US the deets on what keeps her up at night and who's at the top of her playlist.
