Artist History

Born into a family of musicians and artists, it was almost inevitable that Robert Lauri would become involved in the arts in some way. As a young boy he learned to play piano and guitar. Not content with just performing, Robert was soon composing great melodies to accompany his lyrics. Throughout his career, Robert Lauri has always been ”an original”, remaining true to himself and his creative drive, unfettered by the ebb and flow of fads and fashion. In 1976, a number of top names worked with him on his first album. Published by Dick James Music “Elton John’s publisher”, produced by Mitchel Hiller and Kay Kaplan, arranged by Robin Miller, this LP was recorded at the Olympic studio in London and distributed in Britain and Italy. Back in France, Robert Lauri signed with WEA Filipachi in 1980. A very fine album came out of his work with JP Bourtayre, B. de Bosson and D. Rousseau. The lead song, Je jure, marched up the hit parades and soared quickly to number one, where it stayed for several weeks. Some years ago, Robert Lauri began a mystical phase and created the band ALEF. This was an original concept that consisted of mixing hard-hitting, topical arrangements with texts from the Torah. Success was immediate on the airwaves. Some great performance venues, such as L’Olympia, Le Zénith, Le Palais des Congrès and others staged their concerts in front of enthusiastic audiences. After winning over audiences in Europe, ALEF conquered Canada and the United States, where their gigs included an appearance on the US Telethon. The album “Liberty” has been recorded in Paris and New York. Two capitals whose cultural richness and musical diversity permeate this new album. The Liberty project is the fruit of the artist's collaboration with Franck Lupo in New York and Alain Pype, eminent French sound engineer, Pierre Cherez, an extraordinary guitarist. The authors that have collaborated on this project are Chantal Allon, Claudine Maroussek-Dornhakl and the son of Robert Lauri, Jessy, JNB. They have translated the different moods by their talent and their magic words. Two compilations of timeless creations about love, emotions and live experience have also been released, Si je meurs par hasard (If per Chance I die) and J'y crois encore (I still believe). The beautiful lyrics have been written by Chantal Allon. A biography about Roberts musical career, Spotlight on Robert Lauri has been released and will soon be available as an e-book on CD Baby, author Linda Adnil-Vranken. In “United Souls”, Robert Lauri offers songs that could be described as “new sound”. He reveals new musical moods that have a “French touch” while delivering vibrant classical, pop and rap rhythms. All songs of the album New Face create a special ambiance in a variety of musical genres that span the range from a dreamy and highly imaginative universe, to a universe filled with excitement and emotion. "For the New Face album I wanted to embark upon a musical journey into different cultures, where I could mix and match all the different harmonies, picking out the different influences and blending them together into a single song, on a single album,” explains Robert Lauri. A duet has also been released by Diane Marino and Robert Lauri “I'm So Afraid“ : Robert Lauri authored the arrangements. The music is by Robert Lauri and Danielle Bennaim. The beautiful lyrics are by Claudine Marousek-Dornhakl. The Marino-Lauri duet is unquestionably successful: Diane's voice complements Robert's beautifully, and the performance by both artists releases a magical harmony. In the album “Western and Country”, Robert Lauri takes us into a world where new and current Western and New Age music blend and complement each other in complete harmony. Each track is unique and opens into a trip through different colors and harmonies. Each song, with original arrangements, stirs our emotions and appeals to our imagination. The moods offered in this album are all captivating. The album "Power in Heaven" offers us a set of spellbinding songs that stir our heart and soul as well as sharpen our sensitivity. The album is characterized by the use of musical instruments from around the world. As a result, the music transports us to distant lands and across different cultures, all within a harmonious and unique blend of ethnic musical styles. Robert Lauri has the capacity for innovation and unending improvisation. His inspiration knows no limits, and this allows him to move from one genre to another, depending on the sensitivity of the moment.
