She toured as back-up singer for Cohen in

In 2001she co-wrote, produced, arranged and performed the backing tracks (as well as appearing alongside Cohen on the cover) for his album " Ten New Songs". Robinson also contributed to three tracks on Cohen's 2004album " Dear Heather", and duetted with Cohen on "The Letters".
She was awarded a Grammy in

In 2005, Robinson's new song "The High Road" was performed by

In 2008, Robinson is scheduled to release her debut solo album
Everybody Knows, which will include three songs she co-wrote with Cohen: "Alexandra Leaving," " Everybody Knows," and "Summertime." The set will also include "The High Road." The release was delayed because on May 11 2008, Robinson joined Leonard Cohen and his band for a world tour.
