Biography

ROBIN BECK first came to prominence singing the Coca-Cola theme tune ‘The First Time’, scoring a major international hit in the process. Although this was to be the general public’s inauguration into the lady’s work, Beck had in fact been plugging away on the music scene for quite some time, having issued her debut album, the heavily Disco orientated ‘Sweet Talk’, in 1979. This soon forgotten opus, featuring backing vocals from no less a figure than Luther Vandross, included a cover version of TODD RUNDGREN’s ‘Hello It’s Me’.

The 1989 album ‘Trouble Or Nothin’ was produced by DESMOND CHILD and boasts guest contributions from TOTO guitarist STEVE LUKATHER, GUY MANN DUDE and backing vocals from KISS front man PAUL STANLEY amongst others. The album also features a version of the KISS track ‘Hide Your Heart’ and a plethora of other outside contributions from the pens of Child, Diane Warren and ALICE COOPER. ‘First Time’ was contributed by former OZZY OSBOURNE bassist PHIL SOUSSAN. Arguably the best track on the record, ‘Sleeping With The Enemy’ features a credit from Robin Beck herself. Beck also turned up sessioning the same year guesting on Norwegian artist OLE EVENRUDE’s ‘One Size Fits All’ album.

Robin’s second album, ‘Human Instinct’, was released on the D.S.B. label in 1992 and features a host of top session players. Included are TOTO’s Jeff Porcaro, erstwhile CHOPPER keyboard player Kim Bullard, guitarists Tim Pierce, MICHAEL LANDAU, Lee Ritenour and Michael Thompson and Myriam Valle (ex-DESMOND CHILD AND ROUGE) on backing vocals. The Lennon brothers of VENICE fame also contribute backing vocals to several tracks.
