Singer Robyn Akelah is aiming to inspire and provide healing through her music. Her latest single Drunk Calling is a joint production between Aye Bone, Clepto Beats and herself.

Drunk Calling was created around Christmastime after me and two friends got together for a collaboration. I wanted to create a song [that] was fun and had a feel-good vibe and something that people can relate to. Drunk Calling was the end result,” Robyn Akelah told the Jamaica Observer's weekly Splash.

Robyn Akelah's interest in music developed from an early age.

“My grandmother and great-grandmother were both incredible singers in the church. We would sing all day long and that is what started this,” she shared.

Born Robyn Williams, she is originally from a district called Ramble Hill near Bogue, St James.

“I have been living in the United States for nine years now. I spend half of the year there and the other half in Jamaica,” she said.

As it relates to her journey in music, she said: “It has been fun. People will hear my music and feel good, imagine what it feels like creating that magic. I have had the pleasure of working with other great artistes, performing for large crowds. It has been a blast and big thank you to my supporters.”

To date she has worked with producers including Loudbeats (from California), Exotic Muzik Group (a team of producers from Atlanta) and Jamaican Dreek Beats.

She spoke about upcoming musical projects.

“I am working on my album, of which the release date and title will be disclosed later on. Just know that the month of October will be an exciting one.”

Since arriving in Jamaica, Robyn Akelah has been working with DJ Smurf to assist in moving her career forward.
