Robin Hackett


It’s more than just the distinctive, silky voice that has won Robin Hackett acclaim. She’s also a respected musician and accomplished songwriter brazenly paving the road with a genre of music she calls "urban folk/progressive country". In a world where creativity is not always at the forefront, Robin has been creating music as eclectic as her upbringing.

It’s more than just the distinctive, silky voice that has won Robin Hackett acclaim. She’s also a respected musician and accomplished songwriter brazenly paving the road with a genre of music she calls "urban folk/progressive country". In a world where creativity is not always at the forefront, Robin has been creating music as eclectic as her upbringing. Born the only daughter of an Air Force sergeant, Robin grew up along the Rhine River in a small German village.

With no American television and too much time on her hands, she quickly gravitated toward an old beat up guitar and the book "Learn To Play the Guitar in Ten Days." It was then her creative journey was launched. "Not a day went by when my parents weren’t playing the likes of Joni Mitchell, John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery, Crosby Stills & Nash, and Nancy Wilson records, I just soaked in those sounds". Once Robin returned to the States she set her sights on New York City and immediately following college graduation moved to the Big Apple. It was in those first years that time seasoned her voice and experience seasoned the artist. Since making her musical debut with an acclaimed collection of songs in her first CD One Foot Barefoot, she’s won the hearts of Internet listeners worldwide.

Her song Hard Left debuted on the CBS hit comedy "How I Met Your Mother". Most recently, her song "More" was the title track on a Grammy Nominated album by fellow singer Bregette Rideau. She also appeared on KDFW’s Good Morning Texas. In addition, the internet community voted Robin's song Sayin Goodbye as the #1 Jazz song on mp3.com and tunes Jimmy Dean and Come On Love as the # 2 and 3 best folk /country songs of the internet community.

She appeared on the indie Rollingstone.com charts along with other notables such as K.D. Lang and Emmy Lou Harris. Robin was also a Lilith Fair Finalist. She has opened up for Elektra Recording artist Keb Mo’ and Woodstock legend Ritchie Havens.

She studied songwriting with Roseanne Cash at the Omega Institute in New York. Robin was also featured on CNBC television and has appeared in Acoustic Guitar Magazine, PC Magazine, and Mac World Magazine. Read more on Last.fm.
