A vocalist, instrumentalist, songwriter and producer, Larome Powers was born Gerald Robinson on November 21, 1952. Originally from Tupelo, Mississippi, he moved to Ann Arbor, Michigan, when he was five years old. Powers learned to play bass and piano as a youth, and in his early 20s relocated to Detroit, where he spent a decade as a staff writer at Don Davisí Groovesville Productions.

In the 1970s Powers toured the West Coast with such artists as Harvey Scales, Millie Jackson and Joe Tex. He became CEO of Super Disc Productions, later known as SGH&R, and also wrote songs for the April-Blackwood publishing division at Columbia Records.

After releasing four singles over the years, Powers issued his debut album, "Somebodyís Chasiní My Cat" in 2003. He was subsequently offered a contract with Malaco Recordsí Waldoxy subsidiary, and "Whatís Life Without Love" appeared on the label in 2006. This record featured  the hit dance track "Shake & Shimmy".

"Stepping Out" followed in 2014.
