Sisters Robyn (left) and Ryleigh (right) Gillespie are an emerging country/pop duo hailing from Langley, B.C. Their sound is a reflection of their combined musical influences, the energy of modern sounds blended with traditional country elements of acoustic instruments, meaningful lyrics, and sibling harmonies.
Recently signed to Royalty Records (Sony Music Canada) with fresh new music on the way, the girls are primed to break out on an international level.
R&R, as their friends and family lovingly tag them, are true Canadian country girls in daily life, growing up in a serene setting on the family property in B.C.’s Fraser Valley. When not on a stage or in a recording studio, Robyn can be found tinkering on her own car, while Ryleigh loves quadding, and once beat some farm boys in a tractor race at a fair after one of their gigs.
This sister duo is also very passionate about staying fit, eating healthy nourishing foods and sharing their love for health and fitness.
Robyn and Ryleigh are authentic country girls, singing about fast cars, boys, and hot summer nights. Part mud, part makeup, part glamorous, part funny. The perfect recipe for a couple of girls you’d like to get to know better.
