Little Bobby now sees the
light of day with the new CD "Life Of The Blues". A project that
spent several years in his mind. A man in his studio recording
his songs and playing all the instruments...guitar, keys, bass
and drums. That's just what Little Bobby did (with the exception
of an appearance from his Grandfather on "Me & Grandpa", as well
as sax player Morey Finey and fellow guitarist Rod Bondy on
"Time"). From the first track to the final note, the emotions
released in these songs bleed "the blues"...relatable topics
from the soul of Little Bobby. You may remember guitarist Little
Bobby from the Blues Music Award Nominee Nora Jean's CD "Good
Blues" which was also recorded at Untouchable Productions.
Give "Life of the Blues" a listen...you'll be glad you did!
Little Bobby's music interest is a family affair. From his
father to his Grandfather "Minnesota Music Hall Of Fame" to all
his cousins that all play something. Its no surprise that Little
Bobby is one himself.
Little Bobby's first instrument was the drums. He got his first
set from his aunt and uncle. His passion soon changed and he was
turned on by the sound of the guitar. His first influences were
the blues style of Jimmy Page and Jimmy Hendrix. Of course
there is going to be diversity in this story. Little Bobby was
some what of a wild child partying drugs and the life. Little
Bobby ended up serving time in prison on two different
occasions. That's were the story of the blues begins.
While doing time, Bobby met another Indian brother, who one day
told Bobby, "You have a blues voice". Already being self
taught the improvising style of the blues seemed like a natural
fit. Upon his release from prison Little Bobby started a band
called The Storm. After getting a cheap recorder he laid down
his first blues cut "Hey There Storm" and got his first radio
spin on "the Riverside Blues Show" From there Little Bobby was
hooked on the blues.
In 2005 Little Bobby released his first CD "Before The Storm"
Later that year he landed a spot on the Last Ride Blues Festival
in his home town of Thief River Falls Minnesota. Witch featured
blues legend Buddy Guy. What a way to kick off a blues career.
Since Then Little Bobby has released a hand full of blues music.
