Robin Meloy Goldsby grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and attended Chatham College. She studied piano with Bill Chrystal and performed as a musician and actor in many Don Brockett productions. Robins father is Bob Rawsthorne, Pittsburgh drummer and percussionist for the Mister Rogers Neighborhood show.
While living in New York, Ms. Goldsby also served as the musical director of the critically acclaimed international tour of "Sesame Street Live with Luis and Gordon."
In 1994, the Evergreen Music label released Goldsbys lovely solo recording debut of standards and popular classics, "Somewhere in Time." This recording is currently available through Amazon.com.
Shortly after the release of "Somewhere in Time," Goldsby moved to Cologne, Germany, with her husband, world-class jazz bassist John Goldsby. During the next five years, she stayed at home with their two small children, studied the German language, and began composing fifteen new piano solos for "TWILIGHT,"a recording produced by Spielberg and scheduled for release in Spring 2004.
"TWILIGHT" contains songs inspired by Goldsbys journey to Europe ("One Womans Journey"), the birth of her daughter ("The Light in Julias Eyes"), of summers spent on an island("Nantucket Solitude") as well as dreams, hopes and love ("Following Your Light," When Stars Dance," "Miss You Most of All"). The winning team of Spielberg and Goldsby promises to make this newest realease an enduring acoustic piano classic.
Goldsby collaborates regularly with singer/guitarist Peter Fessler. Together they have written many of the songs heard on Fesslers latest recordings. "Blue Summer," climbed high in the European Jazz charts in 2002. "Landscape Tapestry," the newest Fessler/Meloy Goldsby collaboration was released in April 2003. Their third recording of original material is in post production in Berlin.
"Hobo und die Waldfeen" ("Hobo and the Forest Fairies"), Goldsbys musical radio play for children, was produced by the WDR,, Europes biggest radio/television station and was broadcast on Christmas day, 2003, to the delight of many young listeners.
