Profile
Robin Lumley is a British jazz-fusion musician. He started playing drums in a student band at college, and that band entered the finals of the Melody Maker band talent contest in the early 70s. He was a keyboardist with Brand X from 1974 to 1983 (he took a leave of absence during 1978 to concentrate on his career as producer, but rejoined for the band's final albums and tours). He was a leading producer on the UK jazz-fusion scene in the late 70s, including producing Brand X themselves, Rod Argent's solo albums, and albums by original Genesis guitarist Anthony Phillips. He also had a brief spell as keyboard player with David Bowie's Spiders from Mars.
