Whether he’s performing in front of a crowd of thousands or laying tracks in an intimate studio session, Robby Bright is at one with his sax. Growing up in a small town in Southwest Ohio, no one ever knew that his first recording at the age of 5 would not be his last. His amateur musical career was peppered with numerous awards and honors for Outstanding Musicianship. He even earned a scholarship to the prestigious Berklee School of Music at the age of 15. But it wasn’t until after the release of his debut album Risin’ 2 the Top in 1999 that Robby was sure that Music was his calling. His debut album hit the Internet charts hard, with each song peaking in the Top 50 and staying there for quite a long time.
This success segued quite naturally into his sophomore release Sometimes You Just Know in 2001. Robby teamed up with R&B / Jazz producer John Howcott to create an album that hit Smooth Jazz radio just as hard as it hit the charts. The album earned “Most Added” album in Smooth Jazz radio for 3 consecutive weeks in 2001. It then moved into the Smooth Jazz Top 40 where it resided for 18 consecutive weeks. The success of this album has afforded Robby the opportunity to perform with many of his Musical idols, a few of which include legendary artists Gerald Albright, Boney James, Jeffrey Osborne, and Oleta Adams.
