Robyn Dell 'Unto's New Album Little Lines
Available For Pre-Order On iTunes

   Preparing to release her sophomore album, Canadian singer-songwriter and producer Robyn Dell'Unto continues to evolve as an artist. On January 28th Fontana North will release Dell'Unto's "Little Lines", the prolific and mature follow-up to her 2010 debut album "I'm Here Every Night".
  The album's first single, "Pretty Girls", was co-written with Tino Zolfo (Carly Rae Jepsen), while album tracks "Side Car," "Little Lines" and "Good Day" have already garnered features on CBC Radio 1 programs Fresh Air and Here & Now.

  View the innovative lyric video for "Pretty Girls" by
clicking here, shot in over 50 unique locations across Toronto in the heat of the summer (2013).

  Pre-order "Little Lines" at iTunes

  Mixed at Canterbury in Toronto and recorded in various studios across Ontario, Dell'Unto collaborated with a notable list of producers and writers on "Little Lines", including; Tino Zolfo (Carly Rae Jepsen), Todd Clark (Phillip Phillips), John Critchley (Dan Mangan), Adam King (Good Lovelies), Jon Chandler (Amos The Transparent) and Matthew Montour (Gavin Slate). The result is an innovative selection of well-crafted songs that offer pure and insightful lyrics and provide a glance into her musical journey and experiences in life both on and off the stage – playful and honest.

  "I tend to steer away from sad songs and sad lyrics, that 'songwriter/sad song' stigma that can get repetitive and seem really self-indulgent," says Dell'Unto. "A lot of this record is about trying to be an adult in the city, screwing everything up and not feeling the need to apologize."

  From the laid-back love infused "Sidecar" to the hauntingly beautiful ballad "Waste It On You" to the album's title track, a nod to a suburban notion of Toronto, "Little Lines" is all about Dell'Unto taking charge and growing as an artist Her lyrics, at times playful and sweet, at other times strong and commanding – reflective of the real musicianship one can expect to hear throughout the album.
