Description

Bob is a touring singer-songwriter from Annapolis, Maryland. He burst onto the singer-songwriter scene after taking hiatus from his Folk-Pop trio Stereopool, and hopping onto the coffee house, festival circuit engaging audiences and quickly gaining a fan-base. Starting as an opener for acts such as Ellis Paul, David Wilcox, Vance Gilbert and Jesse Harris, Bob quickly built his headlining capability with his regional fan base. From a series of high profile song contest successes (Wildflower Grand Prize Winner, 2009, Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist 2008, Kerrville Finalist 2008 & 2009, NewSong Finalist 2009), Bob quickly gained recognition as a newcomer worth watching. There is no way to encapsulate his 2 studio records "Pour It On" and "Periphery" other than his tagline "Good Music for Good People". There is truly magic in these records. Produced in Bloomington Indiana at Airtime Studios with owner/producer David Weber (Carrie Newcomer, Krista Detor, Atlantic Records: Straight No Chaser) with some well known session players including Jason Wilbur (John Prine, Iris Dement). The records are very organic, rich studio versions of his songs, full of life, depth and feel. The records are full of percussive acoustic guitar, rich piano, organs, dobro and highly impressive backing vocals by his musical friend Krista Detor.

The records cover the gamut from neo-folk, gospel, country, blues with the voice of Bob out front painting with a familiar brush. Bob is not a topical or thematic songwriter, and has a knack for attracting fans from all ages and all walks of life, because of the deep connection to the human being through the songs. Bob is as comfortable with a raucous storytelling rambler as he is with a soft mellow ballad and will throw in some alt country now and then. All mind you without pretense or shoegazing. Real stuff, meaty and worth repeating…
