Giselle Robinson

Giselle Robinson
When: Friday March 2, 8pm
Where: Heroes, 7402 Greenville Ave.

Giselle was born in “Rock City”, St. Thomas, USVI.  Giselle’s voice and her words, her stories and her style, reflect the deeply ingrained West Indian values and traditions she was raised with. She is as warm and smooth, deep and as vibrant as the Caribbean Sea.

She and her son have lived in Fort Worth for 4 yrs. This is where she was first introduced to the open mic in September 2009.

DFW’s own Island Girl, Giselle is a member of the 2011 Fort Worth Slam Team as well as the 2011 DFW Gladiator Slam Champion.   She has just released her first CD, “Cadence” as she prepares to rock the National stage.

Giselle says she writes because she has to, is compelled to, but she performs for that moment of personal connection; shared pain, shared purpose.  She’s still amused by reactions to her accent; after all, it’s just “Me”.
