Ottolini Gears Up for the Second Leg of Her “All My Friends Are Hot Tour” Tickets Available HERE

In a whirlwind of life changes, Canadian-born country sensation Robyn Ottolini navigated significant transformations in 2023, including a move to a new country, the end of a long-term relationship, and a transition to a new team in her career. The result is a poignant EP that serves as a snapshot of the artist’s life, resonating with the universal human experience of growth and self-discovery. Now, emerging stronger than ever with the release of her eagerly awaited EP, Growing Up To Do, Ottolini invites listeners into her world as she candidly reflects on the challenges and triumphs of adulthood. The six-track musical journey, available now on all digital platforms, visit HERE.

Known for her gut-wrenchingly honest storytelling, Ottolini’s lead single on the EP, “Heartless,” captures the pain of leaving a relationship that, while kind and supportive, hindered her pursuit of a music career. Ottolini gets real about “Heartless” and what events inspired the song admitting the single is “super emotional for me.” 

Otollini explains, “Ending my relationship to pursue my career felt selfish, especially because my ex was so kind to me. There was nothing really wrong with our relationship, but I felt I couldn’t throw myself into music the way I wanted to while prioritizing our relationship, traveling back to Canada, and touring. He is truly so lovely, my family loved him, my friends loved him, I loved him — it was hard. The lyric ‘you didn’t hurt me, nobody’s screaming, I’m simply putting a box in a backseat’ really sums up how heartless it made me feel. It’s still so sad when I think about it because it’s just timing I guess. I’m still processing that one.”

“Heartless”, co-written by Ottolini and Emily Reid, is sure to resonate with a wide, heartbroken audience. The lyrics hold both tension and delicacy within an expertly delivered vocal:

“And I’m so heartless, I’m so selfish,
For saying I’m making a mistake and can help it,
Maybe I should stay, maybe I’m crazy,
For trying to push myself out of my limits,
You didn’t hurt me and nobody’s screaming,
I’m simply putting a box in a backseat,
But holy shit, just cause I’m leaving,
Doesn’t mean I won’t have regrets,
Or that this breaks my heart less.”

Growing Up To Do is a standout addition to Ottolini’s discography, showcasing her remarkable growth as a platinum-selling artist while remaining true to her unique style and heartfelt storytelling. Produced by Cameron Jaymes, the EP features six thought-provoking tracks encapsulating the rollercoaster of emotions that come with navigating life and growing up.
