Robert Hart

Robert Hart (born in Poole, Dorset) is considered within the music industry as an outstanding, multitalented rock vocalist / hit songwriter from the UK.

Performing since the early 1980's when he joined the Distance, he co-wrote and recorded their first album "Under the One Sky" that gained success in a worldwide market with particularly high sales in Japan. Robert moved to Atlantic Records as a solo artist, writing and recording his first album "Cries and Whispers".

Robert then got signed by Disney-owned Hollywood Records and with Bernard Edwards wrote the soundtrack for the Whoopi Goldberg film "The Burglar" and then recorded his second album, self titled "Robert Hart" which charted in more than 18 countries.  He followed that up with several more 3 track singles including "Heart and Soul", "Boys on the Corner", "Fooled Around and Fell in Love" and the first "Angel", all of which charted or topped the charts in 20 countries around the world.

During the early 1990's, Robert was sought after by several major bands for his singing, stage presence and song writing abilities; in 1992, Bad Company founder Mick Ralphs with Simon Kirke asked him to replace Brian Howe (former Ted Nugent vocalist) who fronted the band following the reformation in 1986.

Robert performed with Bad Company on a trial basis, becoming popular with both the band and public especially in the USA and Canada, A contract was drawn up in July 1994 by Alliance Artists and Legend Management, Inc. signed by the Bad Company line up of the time: Mick Ralphs, Simon Kirke, Robert Hart, Rick Wills and Dave Colwell, giving Robert the right to perform, write and record songs, albums and receive royalty payments as a full Bad Company member.

Robert co- wrote the Bad Company albums 'Company of Strangers', 1995 and 'Stories Told and Untold', 1996. Between 1994 and 2001, Bad Company performed at great venues, such as Madison Square Garden and The Superbowl to crowds of up to 100,000 people, during seven world tours.

After Bad Company, Robert became the frontman with the Jones Gang forming the trio with Kenney Jones in 2001.

In March 2011 Robert joined the Earth Band as the new singer, replacing Pete Cox.  He has performed with the Earth Band since.
