Tareya Green

Autumn Hill was a Canadian country music duo composed of Mike Robins (from Toronto, Ontario) and Tareya Green (from Calgary, Alberta).[1] Their debut single, "Anything At All," entered the Canadian Hot 100 in January 2013.[2] It is included on their debut album Favourite Mistake, released September 10, 2013.[3][4][5] The record's three subsequent singles experienced diminishing returns on the Canada Country airplay chart, through third single "Fire" became the group's highest-charting entry on the Canadian Hot 100 at number 73. "Blame" was released in March 2015 as the lead single for the group's second and final album, Anchor. Reaching a peak position of four on the Canadian country airplay chart, it remains the group's only top ten hit. In total, the group has landed seven singles on the chart.

With two of their singles gaining substantial airplay on both country and adult contemporary formats, the group has been touted as the first Canadian country act to successfully crossover to pop radio since Shania Twain.[6][7] The duo has been on an indefinite hiatus since 2016, with Tareya now pursuing a solo career.[8]

Band members

Mike Robins

Robins grew up just outside Toronto and listened to his father's classic-rock collection. He gigged throughout high school and university as a singer/songwriter. He eventually landed a spot in 2010 backing up with singer/songwriter Hope on a year-long tour through North America and Europe. He then worked with producers on his own solo songs, L.A. and then in Nashville. He found a passion for country guitar led to the 2011 solo single "No Mercy", which topped the adult contemporary chart on iHeartRadio.[9]

Tareya Green

Green studied multi-media at Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Calgary, Alberta and was developing websites for famous entertainers. She had a passion for songwriting and playing the piano. She began posting homemade performances on YouTube, where Wax Records co-founder Jamie Appleby heard her talented vocals online. She was asked to travel to Toronto to explore her musical talent further. In January 2012 she moved to Toronto. Following the end of the group's promotion for Anchor, in 2017, she adopted the mononym Tareya and announced her intention to pursue a solo career.[10] Her debut solo single, "Summer Wheels", was released in June 2017.[8]
