He has also collaborated with Jon Anderson of Yes, BÃ©la Fleck, Kirk Whalum, and Phil Keaggy.
Robin is an author, speaker, entrepreneur, and one of the world's most innovative guitarists.
He has forged an extraordinary career releasing seven albums, performing over two thousand concerts, and appearing on dozens of television shows.
Quite simply, there is no one else remotely like him... he is a unique blend of musician, entertainer, and motivator.
In concert he combines his incredible guitar abilities with a powerful message of hope and encouragement.
"It is my mission to help people realize their untapped potential, to break through limiting beliefs, and offer insights that will help transform the quality of their lives."
Robin blazes new trails with an unmistakable musical approach bridging pop, jazz, and world rhythms.
His albums continue to receive critical acclaim from both press and radio.
The Boston Post Gazette says, "Crow is a guitar genius!" The Florida Times Union says, "Crow's music is a rocket launcher for the imagination." Robin has devoted much of his life to understanding what drives human behavior and developing resources for creating lasting change.
His new book, Jump... and the Net Will Appear offers insight to those who are interested in creating an extraordinary quality of life at the deepest level.
He tells how he turned his life around as he began to understand the power of thought... how he went from years on the road spinning his wheels and living hand-to-mouth to creating a life of joy and abundance.
Through humorous stories he shares some of the strategies and tools that have allowed him not only to take quantum leaps in building wealth and a successful career, but also to create a rich and fulfilling life for himself, his wife, and four children.
Robin believes that a natural consequence of personal development is the desire to give to others.
"There is no greater joy than to help those who are in need and know that we have the unlimited capacity to make a measurable difference in their lives." In fact, for years Robin has consistently fought to raise money and awareness for the battle against third world poverty.
In 1996 he received the Harry Chapin Humanitarian Award given by the National Association of Campus Activities.
Other recipients include Jackson Browne, President Jimmy Carter, and Kenny Rodgers.
Fulfilling a lifelong dream, Robin created Dark Horse Recording, an inspiring studio complex on his horse farm just outside Nashville, Tennessee.
It's something right out of a storybook fantasy, with three separate music studios in a series of huge timber frame buildings with towers, steeples, and decks offering magnificent views over the countryside.
Dark Horse has become a haven for some of the biggest stars in the world.
Jewel, Neil Diamond, Michael McDonald, Dolly Parton, Amy Grant, Faith Hill, Alison Krauss, and of course Robin Crow are just a few of the artists who have come to this magical environment to record.
Robin created all this with minimal finances in the beginning, but by sheer determination and desire the results have been no less than awesome.
Robin sees the building of Dark Horse Recording as a metaphor for life.
"If you are willing to focus on your dreams instead of your fears, anything is possible!" Crow, a native of Fort Worth, Texas, cites the Beatles as his first influence.
He joined his first band, The Agitators, in the 7th grade, and from then on there was no turning back.
By the time he finished high school, he was making a full-time living as a guitarist.
He spent the next few years traveling the country playing coffeehouses and ski resorts.
He then performed over 600 high school concerts in two years while living in an old U-Haul truck.
Moving to Los Angeles to attract record company attention seemed to be the logical thing to do next.
Besides working hard to get his music heard, he took a number of side roads such as driving limos and working as a stagehand for some of his rock heroes.
Before his Hollywood adventure was over, he did sign to his first national label and recorded the albums, Legend of a Fool and Finish Line.
Of course, no one in his right mind can stay in Hollywood for too long, and Robin began his love affair with the college circuit.
For the next several years he traveled like a gypsy with no permanent address, performing on hundreds of college and university campuses.
A brief trip to Tennessee left him so taken by its beauty and charm, he couldn't resist setting up home there.
"After surviving music industry boot camp in California, Nashville was a breeze." Within a few short months he signed to Fortress Records and recorded three subsequent albums on that label... Seven Seventy Seven, Creator, and Windows to the World.
He continued to tour and as his popularity grew, eventually he caught the eye of Jimmy Ienner, President of Rendezvous/RCA in New York and signed his biggest recording contract to date.
That release, Electric Cinema, spawned the smooth-jazz hit "Sleep Walking," which led to performances on a dozen national television shows and tours as an opening act with Cheap Trick, Peter Frampton, Spyro Gyra, and others.
It was during this time that Robin's wonderful obsession with the science of personal achievement took on full steam.
He embarked on a journey that changed his life so dramatically he began conceiving ways to combine the message of personal growth with his music.
Robin's evolution as a musician and author have led to this convergence.
Currently, he tours nationwide, mostly at convention centers and arenas, offering a unique blend of speaking and guitar performance.
