Robert Dupuis (born December 23, 1946), better known by his stage name Robbie Dupree, is an American singer-songwriter best known for his 1980 hits "Steal Away" (#6 on the Billboard Hot 100) and "Hot Rod Hearts" (#15).[1] In 1981, he received a Grammy nomination as Best New Artist, losing to Christopher Cross. Dupree's final single to make the Billboard chart, "Brooklyn Girls", peaked at #54 in June 1981.

In 1987, Dupree contributed the song "Girls in Cars" to Piledriver - The Wrestling Album 2, a collection of theme songs for World Wrestling Entertainment (then known as the World Wrestling Federation). The tag team Strike Force (Tito Santana and Rick Martel) used an instrumental version of "Girls in Cars" as their entrance music from 1987 to 1989.

In 2010, Dupree signed with Spectra Records and released the album Time and Tide featuring former E Street Band keyboards player David Sancious. On May 21, 2010, Dupree performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon as part of Jimmy's ongoing tribute to Yacht Rock, the smooth West Coast sound of the late 1970s and early 1980s.

In 2011, Robbie Dupree toured as part of the All Star Rock concert series. The tour featured John Cafferty, Orleans, David Pack (Ambrosia), John Ford Coley, Jimmy Hall of Wet Willie, Joe Lynn Turner, and Joe Bouchard.

In 2012, Dupree released a new album, an EP entitled Arc of a Romance, a collection of timeless classics spanning five decades.
