Jenny Robson began as a student of classical piano at the East Helsinki Music Institute. After Sibelius High School, she studied
jazz voice at the jazz department of Sibelius Academy. She graduated with a Master's degree in 2003. Currently, Robson is
finishing her artistic doctoral studies at the Sibelius Academy jazz department.

During her studies at the Sibelius Academy, she won the 1st prize in Lady Summertime singing contest and made a big impact on her reputation as a talented singer. The debut
album, Jenny Robson (2003), was a stylish mix of modern groovy jazz and soul, carried by strong soloists and the expressive voice of the leading lady. The texts were written by Robson,while the compositions were co-penned with the pianist, Mikael Jakobsson.

Robson's next project was Jenny Robson Acoustic Band, a sextet, formed by Robson, flutist Manuel Dunkel, guitarist Teemu Viinikainen, pianist Riitta Paakki, bassist Ville Herrala and drummer Jussi Lehtonen. With this band Robson recorded her second album Butterfly Life. Their music could be described as airy, skillfully arranged, rich acoustic jazz, and it has acquired plenty of praise from critics and audiencealike. In March 2007 the band was on a Jazz Federation tour - the first tour for Robson with her own band.

Robson has also been a member of a cappella vocal group JimJamMurMur with jazz vocalists Mirja Mäkelä, Johanna Iivanainen and Mia Simanainen. They have toured with the group in 2002 and 2008 in Finland also in Mexico in 2005. They one the 1st prize in International vocal group competitions in Tampere in 2003. They recorded an album in 2009 with original compositions by all of the group members Robson, Mäkelä, Iivanainen and Simanainen.

As a sidewoman, Robson has sung on guitarist Jarno Kukkonen's album Uni, and on the album More than a Mirror by violinist Ari Poutiainen's band NonAlike, to mention a few. In the
21st century Robson has performed twice as UMO Jazz Orchestra's soloist; first, in a concert that displayed her original compositions and later in the big band's 30th anniversary celebrations.

Her latest band project was inspired by Brazilian music and lately she has been composing new material to the up coming album. Her Brazil Jazz Quartet got inspiration from the doctoral concert in 2011, where she performed brazil jazz repertoir with guitarist Nelson Faria, pianist Kari Ikonen, bassist Alfredo Paixao and drummer Rafael Barata.

Her latest gigs have featured great musicians such as Jukkis Uotila, Severi Pyysalo, Timo Hirvonen and Jussi Lehtonen.

Apart from active performing and composing, Robson teaches jazz voice at the Sibelius Academy and the Pop/Jazz music school Ebeli.
