Biography

Robert Fleischman is perhaps best known as the short-lived lead singer for the rock group Journey in 1977 between the group’s albums, Next and Infinity. He appeared in live concert performances with Journey and co-wrote and recorded numerous studio demo tracks during the band’s early writing sessions for the upcoming album, Infinity. Three of those co-written tracks appear on the album: “Anytime”, “Wheel in the Sky” (reaching #57 on the Billboard charts), and “Winds Of March”.

Fleischman was also associated with the English rock group, Asia, for a short time. Already known to bandmember Carl Palmer, John Kalodner of Geffen Records introduced him to Asia’s John Wetton as the possible new lead singer for the group. After working on new material together, it became apparent to Fleischman that Wetton’s voice was actually best suited for the material; after discussing this with the band, he amicably left the project and returned to America to pursue other possibilities.[9]

He has also been part of the band Channel, along with guitarist Tony Berg, bassist Trey Thompson, and originally with drummer Art Wood (not to be confused with the singer Art Wood) . This line-up of the band wrote the song “The Way I Feel”. By the time Channel’s self-titled album was recorded in 1984 however, Thompson’s former Black Rose band-mate Gary Ferguson had joined as drummer, and would later appear on Robert’s solo album Dreaming in Tongues (2004). (In 2009, after many years out of print, Channel’s self-titled debut album was reissued on compact disc in the UK by Rock Candy Records.)
