The most memorable and best show I think I’ve seen would have to be Robyn at the Hollywood Bowl right after Body Talk came out — I think it was 2011. I was obsessed with Body Talk and would play it all the time, constantly telling people it was the best and most underrated album of 2010. To this day, it’s one of my favorite albums, in fact. I had just moved to L.A. to start my own music career and Robyn was such a huge influence on me so I remember just standing, eyes wide open, probably a huge smile on my face the whole time, just totally awestruck that she danced incredibly and was able to sing the whole performance! She is a powerhouse of a performer and artist, writer… all of it. I actually got to meet her shortly after that at a Grammy afterparty and completely fan-girled out and embarrassed myself. Got a picture though! I’d like to say it’s one of the only times I’ve been that nerdy around a celebrity.
Jasmine Ash’s “Same Sun” single is out now.
