Palmer, Robert (1949 - ) UK / Music star / TI

The English singer has lived in Switzerland since 1987. Born Alan Palmer in 1949 in Batley, Yorkshire, he spent the majority of his youth on the island of Malta. At the age of 19, he returned to England and sang with the Alan Bown Set. The following year he worked with the group Dada, which later became Vinegar Joe and released three albums, including Rock 'n' Roll Gypsies in 1973.

Robert Palmer began his solo career in 1974, which was an immediate hit with Sneakin' Sally Through the Alley. The singer moved to New York, and then to the Bahamas. He released Pressure Drop and Clues, which shot him to stardom, especially in England. In 1985, he collaborated with the group Duran Duran on the album The Power Station.

That same year, he refocused on his own career and released Riptide, a rock album that gave him his greatest success with Addicted to Love at the top of the American charts. The English singer had touched on all styles, from rock to reggae to blues.

In 1987, he and his family left the Bahamas for Switzerland. He settled in Lugano, in the canton of Ticino, where he enjoys a Mediterranean climate and reasonable taxation. He continues to work on new albums at Logic Studios in Milan, only a half an hour from Lugano. Robert Palmer enjoyed further international acclaim, with Heavy Nova in 1987 and Honey in 1992.
