My real name is Robin Hishinuma and my music name is Robbie Numa. I was born in Ewa, Hawaii, a little sugar plantation town on the Island of Oahu. I am of Japanese ancestry and Hawaiian by culture... 32 years of it! Since then, I've lived in Connecticut, Ohio and Texas. Currently, I am a singer, songwriter and acoustic guitarist playing in smaller venues in Dallas Texas. I decided to share my original songs by recording my first CD called \'Love is Blind\'. I decided to do an all acoustic sounding CD a year and a half later called \'Acoustic Treasures\'. All songs on both CD\'s are written and sung by me. Here in Dallas, I'm currently playing for private parties and in smaller venues playing golden hits of the past under the name of \'Flashback\'. I enjoy singing, songwriting, and playing the acoustic guitar. While growing up, I was strongly influenced by the Beatles, Eagles, Hall & Oates, CCR, Rolling Stones, Elton John, Billy Joel, Steely Dan and Rod Stewart. Most of my sets include music from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. I'm having fun and hope one day, you get to hear and experience my music! Music was a big part of my childhood and past. Since my dad played the guitar and my two older sisters and I loved to sing so much, it doesn't surprise me that I decided to pursue a music career at this time, much later in my life... Music was a big part of our family gatherings, thus, I've been a music fan ever since. I loved and still love all kinds of music, from Hawaiian, rock, blues, folk, pop and jazz. I would just hang out and jam with my friends who played all different kinds of music back in the good old days. I guess taking bits and pieces of all the different kinds of music influenced my style of playing and songwriting today. My singing and songwriting today, is a reflection of my past, so eclectic in style and a mirror of my personality. For most of my career I pursued the arts. Currently, my music is a "snapshot in time" of what I do and how I got there. I really believe that it's never too late to go for your dreams! I still want to be a rock star!
