Robbie Williams

Powered by imdb

Robbie Williams was born in Stoke On Trent, England on February 13th, 1974. Having played in school productions of "Oliver" and, obviously showing a flair for entertaining, Williams' mother saw an advert for auditions to be in a new boy band which he applied for and, at age 16, was a member of Take That. After the incredible success of Take That and countless number one hits, Robbie Williams departed from the band in July, 1995. He started his solo career slowly with modest sales for his debut album "Life Thru A Lens" on Chrysalis Records. Record sales exploded after the single "Angels" was released for Christmas 1997 - a beautiful ballad, written within 20 minutes, which recently got voted the second best song of all times by British voters. Since then, Robbie has released 4 more original albums: "I've Been Expecting You", containing the hit singles "Millennium", "Strong", "No Regrets" and "She's the One", the follow up "Sing When Your Winning", where he dueted with Kylie Minogue, the million seller "Escapology" and the live album "What We Did Last Summer", which was recorded in front of 375,000 people at his legendary Knebworth performances. Additionally to his original albums, Williams also released an extremely successful cover album of classic swing songs ("Swing When Your Winning"), on which he dueted with actress Nicole Kidman on the Frank Sinatra cover "Something Stupid", which charted in at Number 1 in the UK, and with digitally added Frank Sinatra himself doing a duet. In 2002, Robbie Williams signed a new contract with EMI worth £80 Million. His "Greatest Hits" album was released in 2004 and his 6th album titled "Intensive Care" was released in 2005, which attracted healthy sales and good reception. His 7th album, "Rudebox", was released in 2006 receiving mixed reviews and average sales but was still Number 1 in 14 countries. He released the single "She's Madonna" in 2007. Williams spent 2008 and 2009 writing his next album, working with producer Trevor Horn. In October, 2009, his latest single "Bodies" was released, receiving positive reviews and good sales. The much expected comeback album "Reality Killed the Video Star" was released in November, 2009.  See full bio on IMDb »
