Originally from Brooklyn,
New York Robin's career started long before anyone had ever
heard of her.
wasn't Robin's fate to be a country singer.
Robin was just a kid when
she left home to find herself in Daytona Beach Florida searching
for her dream to sing in a rock band.
Back in New York, Robin started to work on different projects including the Broadway musical "Got To Go Disco" and finally started a proper recording career with the release of her first album “Sweet Talk” in 1979 with Kenny Lehman of the famed "Dance, Dance, Dance". While living in the Big Apple, she started to become involved in the jingle business and it was during that period that she got to work with some of the greatest musicians in the world. It was thanks to a certain jingle that Robin's name came to prominence in 1988 when the song “First Time” (a Coca-Cola theme tune) became a huge hit worldwide. In fact, the song held the number one chart position for three weeks in the UK, which meant Robin had to make a live appearances on the BBC's 'Top of the Pops' program.
This was the springboard
to a new start in her recording career. The subsequent album
“Trouble or Nothin"
featured contributions from such luminaries as Steve Lukather
(Toto), Paul Stanley (KISS), Diane Warren, long standing
writing partner Jeff Kent and Desmond Child to name a few.
Robin has never stopped being regarded as one of the premier
female AOR singer/artists ever!
A break from the music industry was in the cards and it was during this time that Robin met and married James Christian, record producer and singer with the rock band "House of Lords." Together they had a beautiful daughter, Olivia. Despite her new role as a mother, Robin couldn't stay entirely out of the limelight and in 1998 she recorded a duet with Italian star 'Pupo' which required that she travel throughout Italy and Germany to promote it with nine month old Olivia at her side
In 1999, Robin released the singles "Jewel in my Crown" and "Shut up and Kiss Me" (Vocal producer James Christian, music produced by Chris Flanger and Ingo) which saw her return to recording after a five year hiatus and in 2003 she released the full album "Wonderland". This adventurous new recording with a contemporary sound showcased the passion, power and versatility of Robin's voice better than ever and with a technically bang up to date production, proved that she was able to move with the times whilst remaining true to a sound that her long time fans would appreciate.
Robin's solo career and
writing has always been the most important part of her focus.
However, through the years her talents have been called
upon many times for session work alongside some of the music
greats of 20th century. She has performed with Patty Austin,
headlined with Tina Turner and Richard Marx and recorded
with top artists such as, David Bowie, Michael Bolton, Deep
Purple and Cher to name but a few.
"Living On A Dream" was released in 2006 by Frontiers Records. This record was acclaimed by Melodic Rock Magazine's Andrew McNeice a Rock Classic Album earning 97 points out of 100, and a new status in the Melodic Rock World.
The classic 'First Time' was also back in the spot light and during that same year as Robin was asked by Universal to re create the vocal along with a new dance mix of "First Time" with the famed Sunblock mixers. This too proved to be an instant success and Robin performed on Top Of The Pops. Robin once again topping the chart with a spot on the UK's official Billboard Charts at #9 and selling to date over 3, million units.
