Bio

Robbie Patton is an English singer-songwriter, first arrived in Los Angeles in 1975 on a solo production deal and he found the place he wanted to launch his career. He co-wrote with a series of Chappell writers such as Kerry Chater and landed a position of the U.S. staff writer for Elton John’s Rocket Records/Publishing Company. He quickly started getting covers with such artists as Dolly Parton, Dionne Warwick, Nona Hendryx, Leo Sayers . Robbie Patton met and worked with Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac who introduced hime to her fellow band mate Christine McVie. The creative working relationship with McVie blossomed into a successful writing and recording collaborations, producing hits. His first major exposure as an artist came in 1979 when he was selected as the opening act for a Fleetwood Mac tour. Mac member Christine McVie would go on to produce both of Patton's solo albums and played keyboards on them; Lindsey Buckingham played guitar on Patton's hit single, "Don't Give it Up", and Stevie Nicks sang on "Smiling Islands". Patton returned the favor by co-writing the hit "Hold Me", which appeared on Fleetwood Mac's 1982 album, Mirage. Patton wrote songs for Jonathan Cain and Santana later in the 1980s.
