Jeffrey Bowen is a songwriter and record producer, notable for his work at both Motown Records and Holland-Dozier-Holland's Invictus and Hot Wax labels. He is best known for his work with the Detroit male vocal groups Chairmen of the Board and The Temptations. Bowen produced three albums for the Tempts: In a Mellow Mood (1967), A Song for You (1975), and Wings of Love (1976).

In 1978 Bowen met and married singer Bonnie Pointer. He produced her '78 and '79 self-titled LPs for Motown (also known as Pointer's "red" and "purple" albums, respectively, because of their cover art) as well as her 1984 album If the Price Is Right for Private I Records.

In July 2014 Pointer filed for divorce from Bowen, citing "irreconcilable differences."[1]
