Under the tutelage of Kômi Hirose (広瀬香美), Hinata debuted in 1998 as GUMI (グミ) and sung the theme song and insert songs for the immensely popular animated series Card Captor Sakura. She changed her solo stage name to meg rock in 2004 and has released music primarily under this name since then. In addition to her solo activities, she had a side project with Akimitsu Honma (本間昭光) from 2000 to 2001 called g.e.m., and another with Ritsuko Okazaki (岡崎律子) called メロキュア (MELOCURE). As a producer and lyricist, she is known either as Megumi Hinata, meg hinata or meg rock. She has produced songs for a great number of singers, the most famous of which include Chieko Kawabe (河辺千恵子), Nami Tamaki (玉置成実), Aya Hirano (平野綾), and Shôko Nakagawa (中川翔子). Owing to her time spent in the United States as a child, Hinata is considerably fluent in English.
Her lyrics often contain whole verses or choruses in English, and she has also written several songs entirely in English. She has also translated lyrics for other artists from English to Japanese (for 河辺千恵子's cover of Hilary Duff’s song “I Can’t Wait”, for example) as well as from Japanese to English.
