Gordon Chambers Biography

Gordon Chambers BiographyGordon Chambers is no stranger to the music industry. In fact, he has been writing songs since the age of 7! The Teaneck, New Jersey native is currently signed to L.A. Reid’s prestigious Hitco Music publishing company where has written for over 60 recording artists, including household names Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah, Brandy, Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan and Marc Anthony. He is best known for his 1994 Grammy- winning hit "I Apologize" for Anita Baker and his 1995 #1 Grammy-nominated smash "If You Love Me" for the trio Brownstone (which was later featured as the theme song of the film "Living Out Loud"). More recently, the eight-time ASCAP winner has written for superstars Yolanda Adams ("Someone Watching Over Me"), Patti Labelle and Ron Isley ("Gotta Go Solo"), as well as penned tunes for superstars Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown ("My Love"), R&B crooner Carl Thomas ("My Valentine"), breakthrough soul singer Angie Stone "No More Rain (In This Cloud)" and pop sensation Beyonce ("After All Is Said And Done"). Over the years, his compositions have been performed at the ESSENCE awards, the American Music Awards and the Goodwill Games–as well as six major motion pictures.

Now in his tenth year in the business, song writing still doesn’t feel like a job to the Brooklyn-based still-single Chambers. It is, instead, he says, "a labor of love and a dream come true." As a way of giving back, he performs for charities and frequently speaks to students all over the country. He has received community service awards from the New York youth organizations Boys Harbor and the Bay Shore Schools Arts Education Fund.

Over the last year, Chambers has been performing up a storm in all over the country, promoting his debut album Introducing Gordon Chambers which features special guests Carl Thomas, Glenn Lewis, Sara Devine, Roy Hargrove and Mike Phillips. "This has been a labor of love," he says. "After working with so many of my idols, the time came for me to work on my own project and express some things that only I could say." Produced by Chambers with Troy Taylor (B2K, Whitney Houston, Aretha Franklin), Barry Eastmond (Yolanda Adams, Anita Baker) and Brian Bacchus (Norah Jones), the album is classic R&B with hints of his first love: jazz.

David Nathan, the British Ambassador of Soul and the author of the Soulful Divas, says of the album: "Plain and simple, if you like your soul music delivered with love, sincerity and passion, don’t look any further; be reminded that the great tradition of soul men like Wonder, Hathaway and other lives on." Chris Rizick of Soul Tracks.com shares similar sentiments: "An excellent debut that straddles urban adult contemporary and smooth jazz while resurrecting some of the pleasant grooves of mid-80’s nouveau soul. A songwriter’s album with not a bad track in the bunch!"

Chambers has recently sold out showcase in New York City at B.B. Kings, Joe’s Pub and, S.O.B.’s. His band has also appeared quite often over the last year in D.C., Detroit, New Orleans (Essence Music Festival), Roanoke, Charlotte–with many more venues planned coming near you.

Now in his tenth year in the business it’s time for Gordon to shine. And shine he does. INTRODUCING GORDON CHAMBERS is an eclectic blend of 14 tunes from the opening tune "Touch Me There", the Grammy award winning "I Apologize, and closing this fantastic recording with "The Only One". The CD features special guests Carl Thomas, Glenn Lewis, Roy Hargrove and Mike Phillips. Produced by Gordon with Troy Taylor (B2K), Barry Eastmond (Anita Baker) and Brian Bacchus (Norah Jones), the album is classic R&B with hints of his first love: jazz.

I have been playing his CD on the radio in Pittsburgh for several months now and I have several favorites. The tune "Slippin’ Away" takes a departure on Spandau Ballet’s "Still" and takes it to another level. I predict the tune "Never Fall In Love" will receive major radio airplay…mark my word. It’s Grammy material. You will enjoy this recording over and over again.

Ok, ok…enough of me talking about him already….

Introducing Gordon Chambers

"Chambers’ tenor is remarkable for its adaptability rather than it’s singularity. It hints at Marvin Gaye on ‘Touch You There’, Babyface in its upper registers on ‘Valentine’–but on "Imagination’, ‘Still In Love’ and his jazzier rendition of the Grammy-winning song ‘I Apologize’ it’s just plain good!’ –SONIA MURRAY, THE ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION
