Robin Spielberg is one of America’s premiere composer/pianists, having released 24 recordings, including original work for solo piano and piano ensemble, albums for holiday, Americana music, music from the Great American Songbook, lullabies, and her unique covers of nostalgic love songs.
Spielberg has toured throughout the US and Asia, written an award-winning memoir on the realities of being an independent touring artist, and works tirelessly to advocate for music therapy and educate the public on the links between music and mental health. She has given a TEDx talk on the transformative power of music and dozens of keynote addresses on the subject.
A prolific composer, and Steinway artist, Spielberg also appears on more than 40 compilations around the world. Her discography includes albums of original piano solos, arrangements of American standards, original pieces piano/ensemble, recordings for the holidays, a CD of American melodies, and a CD of lullabies.
In addition to over 200 million streams on the Pandora Radio platform, she has 116,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and has sold over a million physical CDs of her piano-centric music. As a founding member of the Atlantic Theater Company while a student at New York University, Spielberg acted in dozens of Off-Broadway plays, radio dramas, and composed several original scores, at the same time building a career as one of the premiere piano performers in New York.
Spielberg wrote the music for Atlantic Theater Company’s first full musical in 1991, Balloonland (1992 Actor’s Equity Award grant winner), as well as intermittent music for Mamet’s translation of Chekhov’s Three Sisters, The Frog Prince, The Revenge of the Space Pandas, Craig Lucas’ Reckless and John Guare’s Women and Water. Spielberg’s memoir, Naked on the Bench: My Adventures in Pianoland, won the 2014 Gold Medal in the Reader’s Favorite International Book Award contest.
