Ask any fan of dance music who their favourite male vocalist is and nine times out of ten Robert Owens name will come back, with more than twenty years as a gifted singer, songwriter, producer and DJ under his belt, Robert has not so much embellished house music as played a large part in defining it. 'Tears', 'I'll Be Your Friend' and 'Ordinary People' are just some of the tunes that have borne his black velvet voice and gone on to become truly classic dance records.
Like many other great vocalists, Robert Owens began his career singing in church gospel choirs. Growing up in the poor areas of Chicago and L.A Robert used music as his inspiration to channel his energy but his entry into the world of house music came originally not through Robert’s singing but DJing at block parties and smaller clubs in Chicago.
In 1985 Robert met pioneering Chicago producer Larry Heard, who invited him into his studio. Together they formed Fingers Inc with Ron Wilson and released a series of excellent singles such as 'Mysteries Of Love' or the instantly recognisable house standard 'Can You Feel It'. In 1989 Frankie Knuckles called upon him to record a track with the Def Mix posse –alongside David Morales, Satoshi Tomiie and Frankie himself. After signing with 4th & Broadway his 1991 single 'I’ll Be Your Friend' finally gave Robert the over ground success he so obviously deserved, climbing the charts to 1 all over the world!
Since moving to London England in 1993 Robert has been kept busy with his own label imprint Musical Directions and numerous collaborations with the likes of Sandy Rivera, Photek, Ron Trent, Coldcut and many contemporary house music producers such as Wahoo, Jimpster, Atjazz, Charles Webster, Simbad, Marc Romboy, Kid Massive, Kirk Degiorgio and Ian Pooley for his “Night-Time Stories” collection.
