Besides being a singer-songwriter and author, Robin Hackett is a Speaker/Motivator/Influencer. She has led a unique life. Robin was the only daughter of a military family. She spent 8 years of her childhood in Europe, where she travelled extensively with her adventuresome parents. She lived in a small, German village before there was internet, and cellphones. It was during this time, she learned to play the guitar and discovered she could sing. At the age of fifteen, she travelled throughout Europe with 100 other American teens, performing Patriotic and Christian tunes - honing her craft as a performer. Upon returning to the United States. She was hit with immense culture shock when her father was stationed in Virginia in the seventies, thus began her journey of authenticity. She certainly was not any of the labels, or stereotypes that were thrust upon her. The realization that she couldn't really help where and how she was brought up, she stayed true to her upbringing and forged a life that was authentically hers - though not without immense inner turmoil, struggle and pain.
Robin attended Hamilton College, a small liberal arts college in Upstate New York. After graduation, she moved to
New York City, to pursue a career in the music. "Here I was, this Black girl playing the guitar and singing folk songs. At the time, the music business could only see my skin color and wanted me to switch my sound to RnB. That wasn't an innate style for me. I loved Joni Mitchell, and Janis Ian." In a world that wants to put each individual in a box and put a label on it, Robin wanted no part of it. She was compelled to follow her inner voice and inner calling. It could be no other way for her. We all must find our own inner voice and calling, and it may not look like what society might dictate.
