Robin Wilson

| 2023

Robin Wilson is lead singer/songwriter/guitarist for the multi-platinum album selling and Grammy nominated band Gin Blossoms and guest lead singer for The Smithereens.

Robin’s vocals power Gin Blossoms’ signature FM radio hits ‘Til I Hear It from You’, ‘Until I Fall Away’, ‘Hey Jealousy’, ‘Follow You Down’, ‘As Long As It Matters’, ‘Allison Road’ and many more. Recognized as one of the most influential and important bands of the 1990’s, Gin Blossoms’ melodic songcraft and jangly guitar hooks continue to draw enthusiastic audiences to their concerts at venues across the country to this day.

When the late Pat DiNizio of The Smithereens passed away in 2017, Jim Babjak, Dennis Diken and Mike Mesaros invited Robin and Marshall Crenshaw to perform with the band moving forward as alternating guest lead singers.

A long time resident of Valley Stream, Robin is very involved in community activities and events. He has done several benefit concerts for the Valley Stream School District PTA and has hosted – on his front lawn- neighborhood live streamed concerts featuring a mix of  local young musicians along with established performers such as Jim Babjak, Dennis Diken, Graham Maby of the Joe Jackson Band and Willie Nile.
