Crystal Robins is a songwriter living on Larrakia country (Darwin NT) in the tropical top end of Australia.

Her songs weave a unique and captivating mix of indie-folk with an alt-country twist, layering loops & lush harmonies to accompany her relatable lyrics.

Growing up within Sydney's vibrant live music scene, her obsession with music has lead her to play with numerous bands around Australia. Notably, she has performed on stage with Karen O ('Yeah Yeah Yeah's') for Vivid Live, and at Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Darwin Festival, Illawarra Folk Festival and more.

With her focus now on her solo songwriting project, she has been mentored by international star Toni Childs and Australian indie artist Sam Buckingham, and has supported the likes of award-winning songwriter Wendy Matthews at the Darwin Entertainment Centre, Bones and Jones at Darwin Festival, and guitar virtuoso Daniel Champagne at his sold-out Darwin shows. 

Crystal independently released her debut EP 'Wildfire' in July 2021, which was recorded & produced in Darwin, and features local & interstate collaborations. She is now busily working on recording her debut full-length album, set for release in 2024.

Her debut single release 'Wildfire' hit No. 6 on the National AMRAP Radio Charts, and was shortlisted in the Australian Songwriting Awards (Country Song of The Year). Recently, Crystal was named as a finalist for an Australian Folk Music Award 2022, and for an NT Music Award for 'Folk Song of the Year' 2022 ('So High') and 'Country Song of The Year' 2023 ('Unravel').

In 2023, Crystal was selected to take part in AIR’s Women in Music Mentoring Program, participating in mentoring and professional development opportunities with top artists in the Australian music industry. She was also awarded a scholarship to attend The CMAA Academy of Country Music in Tamworth in 2024, a 12 day program of intensive workshops, mentoring, songwriting and performing opportunities, preceding the annual Tamworth Country Music Festival.

You can find Crystal performing regularly around Darwin's local spots, and she has also toured her music around the country to Desert Festival (Alice Springs NT), Gulgong Folk Festival (NSW), Tamworth Country Music Festival (NSW) and Tablelands Folk Festival (QLD).

As well as writing & performing, Crystal is also passionate about her work as a music therapist, with the belief that “music is a powerful art form with the ability to heal through songwriting & storytelling, and importantly as a way to connect with others.”
