ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Robin Hackett
Ms. Hackett’s song Hard Left was recently featured on the CBS Hit Comedy How I Met your Mother.
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 new genre of music called “urban folk.” Defined as a co-mingling of contemporary, pop, jazz, folk and world music, “urban folk” is as much about the music as it is the musician. 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. Robin’s fans voted 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 songs of the internet community. She appeared on the Rollingstone.com charts along with other notables such as K.D. Lang and Emmy Lou Harris. Robin performed in the world famous JVC Jazz Festival in New York City and was a Lilith Fair Finalist. She’s opened up for Elektra Recording artist Keb Mo’ and Woodstock legend Ritchie Havens. Robin was also featured on CNBC television and has appeared in Acoustic Guitar Magazine, PC Magazine, and Mac World Magazine.
Today Robin’s music is as rich and earthy as the sounds of Sheryl Crow, K D Lang, Sarah Maclachlan, and Alanis Morrissette. There are also subtle flavorings of classic greats Nina Simone and Sarah Vaughn. And while it is hard to pigeon hole her complexity, her songwriting shares a past with icons Carol King, Ricky Lee Jones and Bob Dylan.
Fans say ‘She sings jazz like she invented it and folk as if it was invented for her’
Robin is again back in the studio with Slice aHeaven Records recording her highly anticipated new CD “Perfect World” which is due out 2006.

Robin Hackett ROCKS me into an INSPIRED STATE OF MIND
I love Robin's music because it always leaves me feeling good. Her amazing rich vocals and thought provoking lyrics always inspire me and leave me in an excited state of mind. Each new song I hear feels familiar, like I have heard it before and I can't wait to hear it again. She is just an amazing songwriting talent and so, she creates tunes that you feel like you've known and loved all your life!
