Robin Beck topped the singles chart in the UK in 1988, and Germany in 1989 with her single "First Time", which had come to the public's attention via its use in a Coca-Cola commercial.
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.
