Singer-songwriter Robbie Dupree began his music career by singing in a cappella groups on the street corners of Brooklyn. His passion for music flourished in the rich, creative atmosphere of the late 1960’s. Moving to New York City during these exciting days, Robbie dedicated himself to songwriting and the pursuit of a solo career. He studied the work of rhythm and blues legends like Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke. Their powerful rhythms and sensual melodies became the foundation of Robbie’s emerging style. By 1970, he was performing his early compositions on the club scene in Greenwich Village.

His first national recognition came in 1976, when his song ‘When You’re Down’ received the American Songwriting Festival Award for ‘Best Rhythm & Blues Song’.

In 1978, Robbie made the decision to pursue a solo career. He moved to Los Angeles and hooked up with old friends Rick Chudacoff and Peter Bunetta. Together, they produced his first solo recording. In 1980, Robbie signed a contract with Elektra Records. His debut album yielded two Top 10 singles, ‘Steal Away’ and ‘Hot Rod Hearts’, and earned him a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. To date, ‘Steal Away’ has been played on American radio almost three million times. It qualifies as a true pop classic.

Robbie has released nine albums over the past 25 years. His latest, ‘Robbie Dupree with David Sancious’ is an intimate recording featuring a piano/voice duo performance. His album, ‘All Night Long’, a live retrospective containing 15 of his most popular songs, has become a major hit. Robbie’s music has been featured in major motion pictures, network television shows, and national sports events. He continues to perform in concert around the world. Robbie’s enduring career has been profiled on VH-1.
