Born and raised in Denver, CO, Robyn Green spent his childhood playing several instruments in several bands, beginning with a trumpet and picking up the drumsticks at the age of 12. Finding a knack and interest in drumming, he played for various groups and became fascinated in session drumming and jazz along with his love for rock. While picking up a guitar along the way, Robyn completely changed musical directions at the age of 19, founding the atmospheric space rock group The Lavellas with fellow friend and musician, Jason Mathews. The Lavellas released two records in Denver before relocating to Chicago where Green spent the following 5 years playing out and recording with the band there, while completing his degree from Columbia in music composition before again relocating to Madrid, Spain in 2008, where he opened a small studio called Spaceland and would spend time away producing and engineering other artists. Periodically traveling back to work with the Lavellas in Chicago and tour occasionally, the arrival of 2012 brought new inspiration and Robyn recorded and released a solo record entitled Slowdown Deteriorate. Still new and in it's promotional stages, the album has sparked interest among listeners and labels in both sides of the Atlantic and a recent press release was issued regarding the record:
ROBYN GREEN: SLOWDOWN DETERIORATE
(Press Release, Tuesday, February 2013)
Denver-born composer and musician, Robyn Green (frontman for the Denver & Chicago-based atmospheric space rock group, The Lavellas) recently released his debut solo work entitled, ‘Slowdown Deteriorate’, meshing lyrical themes concerning the ever-strong presence of ‘easily manipulated minds in today’s culture’ with an evidently devastating decline in ‘quality-driven rock pop culture musically.’
Slowdown Deteriorate reveals vocals shrouded in effecty guitars, bass, drums, along with hypnotic synth-like soundscapes employing background harmonies reminiscent to late 70's and early 80's New Wave & Post Punk, 90's Shoegaze & Britpop, and modern day Noise Pop and Melodic Thrash, all played, performed, and mixed in favor of those who enjoy the underground musical ambience of psychedelic, spacey, effect-driven dream rock, while dancing among shimmering bluish-green fog-infested shadows and the ghosts in between.

Robyn Green currently resides between Geneva, Switzerland, Madrid, Denver, and Chicago and continues to compose music as well as produce other artists.
