Robin Beck is an American singer, best known for her 1988 single “First Time” which topped the charts in the UK and in Germany.

Her first album, SWEET TALK came out in 1979 and altogether she has released 9 studio albums, the latest one UNDERNEATH in 2013, and several successful singles including “Save Up All Your Tears”, “Tears In the Rain” and “Wrecking Ball”.

INTERVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

House of Lords is a Californian hard rock band formed in 1987. The band released its self-titled album in 1988 through Gene Simmons record label Simmons Records. The record sold respectably and included hit singles “I Wanna Be Loved” and “Love Don’t Lie”. SAHARA followed one year later and it included another successful single “Can’t Find My Way Home”. At this stage, the band and went through several line-up changes and eventually they split soon after the release of 1992 album DEMON’S DOWN. The original band returned in 2004 with album POWER AND THE MYTH but it wasn’t long after until the band disbanded again. In 2006 vocalist James Christian assembled a brand new version of House of Lords where he was the only remaining member of the original line-up. The renewed band released WORLD UPSIDE DOWN followed by COME TO MY KINGDOM (2008), CARTESIAN DREAMS (2009), BIG MONEY (2011) and PRECIOUS METAL which came out just a few months ago. The album release was followed by an extensive European tour which this time reached also Finland, for the first time ever. I sat down with James before the bands show in On The Rock in Helsinki and we discussed about the tour, PRECIOUS METAL, solo career and other things in life. Read on!

Her brand new album UNDERNEATH was released at the end of August and since the album is amazing I thought it was time to have a chat with Robin in order to hear what she’s been up to. We talked about the album, how it was to work with her husband James Christian (House Of Lords) on UNDERNEATH, about her co-operation with Swedish guitarist/producer/songwriter Tommy Denander and about live shows and touring.
