Midwest native and Army Veteran, Robbie Robinson, is a singer, songwriter, producer and manager in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. In addition to writing and producing his own music, he has also managed artists such as The Phusion, Tru Soldier, and The Wordologist. He also served as a personal manager to the inspirational artist, Michael Trotter, Jr. and Robbie’s daughter, Female Drummer Girl.
Robbie developed his singing voice by singing in church at a very young age. After seeing The Beatles perform on the Ed Sullivan show in 1963 and then seeing James Brown perform at the Apollo in 1965, Robbie knew the music industry is where he wanted to be.
As a young adult, Robbie taught himself to play the piano and drums he began studying at Eagles Roost Recreation Center in Ft. Campbell, KY; the same place where the late greats, Jimi Hendrix and Elvis Presley studied.
In addition to singing, writing and managing, Robinson also owned and managed a DJ company, Zrocks Mobile Disco, with his partner and friend, Richard Hill in Honolulu, Hawaii for three years.
Lil’ Redd Robinson came about in 1981. The clever breakdown of the name comes from his family; Lil’ (his kids) Redd (his wife’s maiden name) and Robinson (his last name).
Robbie’s first single, Win, was released in 2004, followed by his first album, Whenever in 2013.
