All Music Guide:
Born in Augusta, GA, soul singer Chuck Roberson and his family relocated to Madison, FL, where Roberson discovered his love of music. Influenced by such artists as Bobby Bland, Little Milton, Tyrone Davis, and O.V. Wright, among others, Roberson began his musical career in the mid-'70s. He issued several singles on the small Albradella record label, including such titles as "Love Affair," "You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone," and "I Feel It Coming," which enjoyed regional success but failed to break through nationally. In the late '70s, Roberson relocated to Philadelphia in hopes of launching a disco career, but eventually returned back home in 1983. Several more singles followed, which led to a record deal with the Ecko label in the '90s, resulting in a steady stream of full-length albums, including 1996's Something Good for You, 1997's Meet Me Tonight, 1999's Love Power, 2000's Love Freak, and 2001's I'm Your Candy Man. Roberson's music and sexually charged subject matter reflects that of such soul/R&B artists as Barry White.
