Robin Galante Singer/Songwriter Extraordinare!

As I walked in the singer looked up and there it was again, that grin! Different side of the world, but the same grin. Her name I later found out is Robin Galante.

Robin was playing in the front of the coffee shop with a two person audience. I made my way to the back where coffee is served. I ordered a medium coffee, which at Adventure Coffee is a huge coffee, and made my way back to the front of the store. I plopped into a comfy chair against the store-front window and enjoyed.

Robin looked up again, flashed the same smile and continued to play. Her voice was beautiful and rich and true as she played the guitar. All the lyrics hit home. Songs about chasing your dreams, songs about making the most of every circumstance in every day, and songs about the world and everyone in it all rolled into a guitar-backed, mellow performance.

I bought one of Robin's albums which she was gracious enough to autograph for me. Again, it was just excellent. It even included a song about a cat that wished it could fly!
