Life and career

Nevil began playing guitar at age 11 and played in a series of cover bands. He began performing his original music and signed a publishing deal in 1983, writing songs for the Pointer Sisters, El DeBarge, Alison Moyet, and Earth, Wind & Fire.

In 1986, he obtained his first recording contract, signing with Manhattan Records, for whom he recorded his debut album with the producers Alex Sadkin and Phil Thornalley. His debut single "C'est la Vie" reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, propelling the album into the Top 40 on both the US pop and Billboard R&B chart.[1] His second single "Dominoes" hit #14 on the Hot 100 and #22 on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, while the third single "Wot's It To Ya" peaked at #10 on the Hot 100 and Dance Club/Play charts, and #69 on the R&B chart.[2]

In 1988, Nevil released his second album, A Place Like This (#118), and hit the Top 40 a fourth time, with the single "Back On Holiday" (#34). A second single, "Somebody Like You", failed to build on that success, peaking at #63.

In 1991, Nevil's third album, Day 1, was released to fewer sales, although the lead single "Just Like You" became his biggest hit since 1987, and his fifth and final Top 40 single, peaking at #25 on the Hot 100. Second single "For Your Mind" stalled at #86, effectively ending his chart run in the US.

Nevil turned to writing and producing for acts such as Babyface, Jessica Simpson, Destiny's Child and Japanese pop singer Seiko Matsuda.[3] In 2006, he collaborated with Matthew Gerrard on the Smash Mouth album Summer Girl. Gerrard had been writing for Disney for some time and their work led to a partnership working on Disney projects including The Cheetah Girls, High School Musical, and Hannah Montana franchises. Nevil shared ASCAP Awards for his work on High School Musical and Hannah Montana in 2008, 2009, and 2010. [4]

From 2011 on, Nevil has been creating, writing, and producing music for Extreme Music, part of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. [5] [6] [7] Several of his Extreme Music compositions appear on the 2015 Sony compilation album Party Pop.

Robbie Nevil is married with two children. [8] He is the older brother of actor Alex Nevil.
