Canadian prodigy Robyn Ottolini caused quite the stir on Tik Tok with her addictive 2020 single, ‘F-150’. Although it was a break-up anthem that announced Ottolini to the world, her music is usually underpinned by a refreshing refusal to take herself too seriously.
For her Holler Live Session performance, Ottolini packs up her charming, light-hearted outlook and carries it across the pond to The Betsey Trotwood pub in London.
The rising star performs ‘F-150’ and ‘Busy’, along with a special rendition of an unreleased track, ‘All My Friends Are Hot’.
From the moment she introduces her first song, it's evident why Robyn Ottolini has been able to connect so immediately with such a broad audience. She laces her lyrics with an endearing levity - and an occasional playful ad-lib.
Although self-deprecation is prevalent, particularly on ‘All My Friends Are Hot’, it never detracts from Ottolini's central appeal of backing yourself and being your own number one fan. It's a popular mantra in modern country, but one that Ottolini packages up in a unique, heartening way.
As she flits between the sass of ‘Busy’ and the joviality of ‘All My Friends Are Hot’, Ottolini dissipates any hints of timidity in favour of pure, unadulterated charisma.
