Biography

Cock Robin, lead by singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Peter Kingsbery, became an international phenomena during the mid to late 80’s.

Raised in Austin Texas, Kingsbery began his career in Nashville Tennessee in 1974 as a songwriter for Larry Henley’s Wind Chime Music/Warner Chappell.

After almost three years in Tennessee, Kingsbery headed west towards Los Angeles to play the clubs (Madame Wongs, The Troubadour) soon forming the band Cock Robin with Anna Lacazio, Clive Wright, and Lou Molino lll. The band’s popularity continued to grow particularly in Europe where the three albums made between ’86 and ’90 all went platinum with the singles "Remember The Promise You Made", "When You’re Heart Is Weak", "Thought You Were On My Side", "Just Around The Corner", "The Biggest Fool Of All", and "Worlds Apart".

The group took a long hiatus from the business in the early 90’s while Kingsbery restarted his life in France recording three albums with Eddie Barclay’s Barclay records under his own name; "A Different Man", "Once In A Million", and "Pretty Ballerina". The last of his solo outings, a french album named "Mon Inconnue" was recorded for Warner Bros Records.

During this time an unexpected success (1992) as one of the vocal performers included in the London version of the French musical "Starmania", winning him a top ten hit in all of the french territories with an operatic performance of the song "Only The Very Best".

Cock Robin reformed in 2006 with the original members to record two more album’s, "I don’t Want To Save The Word", "Song From A Bell Tower", before the final departure of Anna Lacazio from the group.

Kingsbery continued on under the groups name releasing 2016’s "Chinese Driver", with a more electronic sound in partnership with rock super drummer and programmer Mathieu Rabate touring two years with a new formation featuring the vocal/keyboards of Coralie Vuillemin and the drummer Didier Strub (The Moorings, Pixels In A Box).

2019 signals the return to the bass guitar for Kingsbery and a new Cock Robin album to come "Homo Alien", featuring all new original songs within a more pop/rock sound.
In parallel, the group tours in France, Belgium, Netherland, Danemark and more to come !
