Hailed as one of the finest guitarists in rock history, Robin Trower’s career has spanned more than four decades.

Trower spent the early 60’s playing guitar in various London based bands, the most successful being THE PARAMOUNT who specialised in mostly covers, and released several singles from 1963 and 1965. The ROLLING STONES were big fans. In 1967, Trower received his big break when he joined PROCOL HARUM; and remained a member until 1972.

After leaving PROCOL HARUM, Trower embarked on his solo career, formed a power trio that transformed him into a celebrated guitar innovator. His early albums share a tough, explosive guitar style mixed with his trademark “soft psychedelia” that made Robin Trower stand out from the rest of the crowd.

Throughout his solo career, Trower has been regarded as the “White” Hendrix due to his uncanny ability to channel Jimi’s bluesy, psychedelic, Fender Strat playing style.

Trower released his solo debut, Twice Removed From Yesterday, in 1973. The album barely left a dent in the US charts, but that would change soon enough with his next release 1974’s Bridge Of Sighs. The album skyrocketed into the US Top Ten, peaking at number seven selling a million and a half copies. It still sells 15,000 copies yearly worldwide.

Although Bridge Of Sighs was to be his most popular solo release, Trower’s stock continued to rise throughout the mid 70’s, as he became an arena headliner on the strength of such hit albums including 1975’s For Earth Below, 1976’s Robin Trower Live, Long Misty Days and 1977’s In City Dreams.

Further releases followed in the 80’s, including a brief stint with ex-CREAM bassist/vocalist Jack Bruce which spawned the albums, 1981’s B.L.T. and 1982’s Truce.

The 80’s saw Trower expand his audience with several releases that updated his blues-rock style, most notably on 1987’s slickly produced album Passion. During the early 90’s, Trower returned back to PROCOL HARUM for a brief reunion (1991’s Prodigal Stranger), before backing ex-ROXY MUSIC singer Bryan Ferry on a few releases (1993’s Taxi and 1994’s Mamouna, the latter of which Trower earned a co-producer credit). The 90’s saw Robin consistently touring the USA with his power trio.

In 2002, Trower returned to the production role, linking up with Bryan Ferry again, to work and play on Bryan’s Frantic album. In the following years Trower concentrated on writing and producing film music for releases such as Good Humour Man.
