Biography

An intimate artist "for the people", Robbi writes, plays, sings and produces with the intention of touching the “heart-strings”. She strives to provoke thought and contemplation on such matters as celebration of love, overcoming life's obstacles, and an overall celebration of life. Starting out professionally in the TV music sector, Robbi began her professional career in the television music world, as a singer/songwriter.

Robbi Spencer, a singer/songwriter, dancer, and musician, originally from Dayton, OH began training for a career in entertainment at the early age of three, continuing more formally upon acceptance to the Cincinnati School of Performing and Creative Arts. Robbi majored in vocal music, with a minor in piano, drama, and dance, preparing her for a scholarship opportunity and acceptance into Kent State Universitys Vocal Music Dept. After enlisting into the USAF, with aspirations of joining the Air Forces elite entertainment group, Tops in Blue Robbi was accepted into this prestigious entertainment group. This led her to the world of beauty pageants, where she reigned as the first black Miss Albuquerque, USA while still a member of the armed forces. While Miss Albuquerque, she was asked by the Republican Party of New Mexico, to perform at major political functions, including the governors inauguration ball.

After honorably discharging from the Air Force, Robbi returned to Ohio, where she further pursued her dancing career, as a cheerleader for the NFLs Cincinnati Bengals. She worked as a dance instructor for children, ages 4-14, and choreographing and coaching for various junior high and high school dance teams. Robbi then became a dancer with the World Championship Wrestling (WCW), Monday Nite Nitro, known as Nitro Girls. In pursuit of a career in her first love-music, she ventured to Vancouver, British Columbia, where she joined an international girl band, known as Sweet Taboo. There were four members, coming from Spain, the Philippines, the US, and Canada. After recording a demo, the members gained the attention of Los Angeles based producers, Presidential Campaign. Once arriving in LA, the members soon decided to separate and pursue individual career paths.

To date, Robbi has performed for crowds, both small and large, opening for R&B legend Howard Hewitt, performing alongside Dave Hollister and his band House of Soul, and opened for the Pointer Sisters. Robbi was fortunate to have studied under the tutelage of legendary guitarist Phil Upchurch. You can also hear some of her writings on some of prime-time TVs most popular TV shows, writing under Kurt Farhquar of Farhquar Productions. You can hear Robbis vocals and writings on the UPN show, Girlfriends, and she backed Macy Gray on the title track for the UPN show, Second Time Around. Robbi has also toured with Ali Woodson of the Temptations, as both, a background singer and dancer, gaining a multitude of live performance experience.

Robbi Spencer is now in charge of her projects from top to bottom, handling everything...production, vocals, keys, guitar, editing, and engineering! Finally, she can say...SHE DID IT HER WAY!

Robbi has now started Robbi Spencer Productions LLC, and Arje Music and can now add publisher to her list of titles.

Lyrics

Speak 2 Me

Written By: Robbi Spencer

Chorus

Can you,
Speak 2 me,
Gently,
Guide me, to see,
What the, world just, might need from me.
Speak 2 me,
Gently,
Guide me, to see
What the, world just, might need from me.

1st Verse

I had to take a break,
Take some time to meditate,
Sit and do nothing all day,
Like a mental getaway.
Right now I feel so restless,
Can't seem to find my purpose,
If I just stop and breathe,
Then my soul just might start speaking.

Chorus

Speak 2 me,
Gently,
Guide me, to see
What the, world just, might need from me.
Speak 2 me,
Gently,
Guide me, to see
What the, world just, might need from me.

2nd Verse
Talked to a friend today,
And we spoke on making change,
That's when I thought about everything,
Knowing that I must keep searching
It's just I feel so restless,
Can't seem to find my purpose,
If I just stop and breathe,
Then the world just might start speaking.

Breakdown

Speak 2 me,
Ooooo, ooooo
I'm a just be still,
I'm a just be quiet.
I'm a let the world speak to me
So I can really feel deep
Then I'll know deep inside,
That I learned to be quiet.

Chorus, repeat, fade....

Speak 2 me, (speak 2 me)
Gently, (guide me)
Guide me, to see, (help me)
What the, world just, might need from me. (I'm ready to learn, to learn, to learn)
Speak 2 me,
Gently,
Guide me, to see
What the, world just, might need from me.

He's A Man

Written By: Robbi Spencer

1st Verse
An elder lady,
Sat me down, to share with me,
Her insight, she gave her perception
How if I want a man, must learn acceptance.

She, said young lady,
You must listen very carefully,
I'm so glad she gone share her wisdom,
But what she spoke, stirred deep emotion.

Chorus

She say,
He's a man, he's a man, he can't help but be,
He's a man, he just can't feel that deep,
He's a man, he's a man, got no emotion,
Athough he's just a man, still at least ya got one.

Chorus Lead

I said,
He's a man, he's a man, and still I choose to think,
He's a man and he's capable of loving me,
He's a man, he's a man, got his loyalty,
And if I love him strong, by my side, he'll be.

2nd Verse

That's right I told her,
Man is strong of valor,
She rolled her eyes, stood and looked at me,
She said child you wait, one day you gon see,

I said Ms Lady,
You must listen very carefully,
I shared my own wisdom,
But the only thing she could feel was venom.

Chorus

She say,
He's a man, he's a man, he can't help but be,
He's a man, he just can't feel that deep,
He's a man, he's a man, got no emotion,
Athough he's just a man, still at least ya got one.

Chorus Lead

I said,
He's a man, and still I choose to think,
He's a man and he can love me,
He's a man, he's a man, got his loyalty,
If I love him strong, I know he'll never leave.

Basic Chorus x 2

He's a man, he's a man, he can't help but be,
He's a man, he just can't feel that deep,
He's a man, he's a man, got no emotion,
Athough he's just a man, still at least ya got one.

He's a man, he's a man, he can't help but be, (I refuse to believe)
He's a man, he just can't feel that deep, (That don't fly with me)
He's a man, he's a man, got no emotion, (nooooooooo)
Athough he's just a man, still at least ya got one.

(SHORT ORCHESTRAL INTERLUDE)

Basic Chorus (fade)...

He's a man, he's a man, he can't help but be,
He's a man, he just can't feel that deep,
He's a man, he's a man, got no emotion,
Athough he's just a man, still at least ya got one.

Lead
(I choose to think, he's loving me, with loyalty)!

Intro

You came, to me
Just when I was feeling,
Lonely, woe me,
Now my life is like a smile ya see.

1st Verse

When I saw ya there, yes I stared,
You had me thinking...maybe
Then our eyes met, we connected
Look now, you're my baby
What I got in you, boy is something new,
Refreshing you are, and so real
Do you really care, damn I scared,
Ain't felt this way in many years.

But ya turned my life around you see.
You came, to me

A little anxious here, want you near,
You're such intoxication
Can you tell yet, we're connected,
Now you're my inspiration
Boy ya gotta know
Just how much I really want and need this
Your eyes, voice so cool
Can it be, you want me too!

Bridge
How I love all the little things you do
You're so amazing
There is something, I'm hiding on the inside
I'm feeling you baby
In my life I needed something
You let me be me, be a woman
You show you're here for me
Don't stop, loving me baby

Chorus

You came, to me
Just when I was feeling,
Lonely, woe me,
But ya turned my life around you see.
You came, to me
Just when I was feeling,
