Singer-songwriter, producer, and recording artist Gordon Chambers is no stranger to the music industry. His No. 1 hits as a lyricist include Anita Baker's Grammy winner "I Apologize," Brownstone's Grammy-nominated "If You Love Me," Angie Stone's "No More Rain (In This Cloud)," the Grammy-nominated theme of Set It Off called “Missing You” (performed by Brandy, Tamia, Gladys Knight, and Chaka Khan), and the Isley Brothers' recent comeback smash "Just Came Here to Chill," among others. He has written for over 75 recording artists including household names Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Beyoncé, Brandy, and Trey Songz, among many others. He is the winner of 10 American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers songwriting awards and recipient of four Dove nominations.
Since 2005, Chambers has been performing globally to promote his debut album, Introducing Gordon Chambers, which features special guests Carl Thomas, Glenn Lewis, Roy Hargrove, and Mike Phillips; his sophomore CD, Love Stories, which features nine-time Grammy nominee Ledisi; his third album, Sincere, which includes tributes to his idols and mentors Donny Hathaway, Phyllis Hyman, and Gerald Levert; and his new album, Surrender, which features duets with five-time Grammy winner Lalah Hathaway and Grammy nominee Eric Roberson. His U.S. appearances include performances at the White House, the Essence Music Festival, the Congressional Black Caucus, the Apollo Theater, and Constitution Hall, among others. He has also toured South Africa, Europe, and Japan.
A role model to youth, Chambers speaks in schools and colleges often. His Grammy-nominated protégée Karina Pasian was signed to Def Jam records in 2008, and her song “Slow Motion,” which Chambers wrote, has been covered hundreds of times on YouTube. Canadian singer and rapper Tory Lanez recently sampled Chambers's “If You Love Me” to create his 2015 No. 1 R&B/hip-hop hit “Say It.” This song has received 250 million plays on YouTube and been re-recorded by Ed Sheeran, Sevyn Streeter, and Chrisette Michele. Chambers also appeared on South African Idol as a vocal coach and mentor in 2016.
