HER BIG BREAK: While working on everything from a Broadway musical ( Got to Go Disco ) to her premier album (1979 s Sweet Talk, with Kenny Lehman of Dance, Dance, Dance ), she got to collaborate with some of the greatest musicians in the world as part of, of all things, the jingle biz! In fact, it was when her song, First Time, was chosen for use in Coca-Cola commercials in 1988 that her name became a household one! (Not only that, but the song became a huge hit around the globe and spent three weeks at No. 1 in the UK) ALL-STARS: By then officially a Very Big Deal, Beck fielded contributions for her next album, Trouble or Nothin , from such A-listers as Steve Lukather (Toto), Paul Stanley (KISS), Diane Warren, Desmond Child and her long-standing writing partner, Jeff Kent. Human Instinct, released in 1992, again featured the crème de la crème of the session world (Jeff Porcaro, Kim Bullard, Tim Pierce, Michael Landau, Lee Ritenour, Michael Thompson, etc.) and a line-up of blue-chip songwriters (Mark Spiro, Jeff Kent, Journey s Jonathan Cain, Heart s Ann and Nancy Wilson, Sue Shifrin, Glen Burtnik etc.). Two years later, Can't Get Off included songs co-written by everyone from Clif Magness (Avril Lavigne, Steve Perry) and Steve Kipner to Michael Bolton and Marc Jordan. BACK TO THE FUTURE: That same year, Beck was asked by Universal Records to rerecord her megahit, First Time, with the famed Sunblock remixers. Once again, the song took off, hitting the Top 10 on the UK s Billboard charts and selling more than 3 million units (so far!). In 2009, Beck kicked off her new label, Her Majesty s Music Room, with a 20th anniversary Silver Edition rerelease of Trouble or Nothin completely rerecorded. HITTIN THE ROAD: In 2011, Beck put out The Great Escape, which included That All Depends On What You Do Tonight, her duet with Joe Lynn Turner of Rainbow and Deep Purple, and Till the End of Time, her duet with husband James. She then spent 2012 playing arenas all over Europe, starting with 21 glorious performances of Rock Meets Classic, alongside Deep Purple s, Ian Gillian, Toto s Steve Lukather, Survivor s Jimi Jamison and Manfred Mann s Chris Thompson. After an almost 20-year hiatus from performing live, she had been bitten again by the bug and decided to do her own tour of Europe to follow up her acclaimed set at Nottingham s Firefest. WHAT'S UNDERNEATH ?: For her latest album, Underneath, Beck took a chance and allowed some new writers to submit material. When she heard their work, she was blown away. It felt so right, she marvels, I just had to have these songs for myself! So, in addition to Robin and her boys Denander and Christian writing team, she now has Glen Burtnik, Barry Jay and Fiona, Underneath includes songs co-written by Germany s Crush Boys (Daniel Volpe and Thomas Lipp, known for their work with Dutch teen idol Jeronimo and German girl group Monrose), Swedish Eurovision 2013 winners Linnea Deb and Joy Deb (Robin Stjernberg), Charlie Mason (Miley Cyrus), Mark Smith (Cinema Bizarre), Christian Rabb and Frida Molander (Nina Zilli) and more. Plus, with husband James Christian (lead singer of House of Lords) again producing the album (and dueting on Burning Me Down and daughter Liv, herself a star in the making, on backing vocals It s a family affair, says Beck. We just happen to be a family whose foundation is solid rock .
