Broadly deemed one of the finest guitarists of his generation, in 1996 Bobby was judged Fender’s “Irish guitarist of the future” by no less an intuitive opinion than that of Donal Gallagher, brother to the late Rory. (He received his award at Wembley Conference Centre, in the company of such as Hank Marvin of The Shadows and Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac).
Interviening years has seen Bobby collaborate with and support international luminaries like David Gray-Mercury Rev-The Kinks-Ronan O Snodaigh- Liam Ó Maonlaí and Dee Armstrong as well as long time friends and Irish stars Kila.
Bobby’s highlight in 2007 was funkin it up on the chill stage at Electric Picnic 2007 and has just come off a tour with Kila to promote his new album “The Future History”.
Bobby is a soulful, sensitive performer and songwriter,his highly spirited Funky Folk and Soul sound takes his music far beyond the realms of singer songwriter.
His songs carry messages laden with spiritual and social imperative and are delivered with supreme musical and vocal dexterity. He would cite Jesus Christ as influential in his life and work but asked as to his religious preference, he replies, “I am who I am. Its not the branch that matters, it’s the ground its planted in, whether Christian, Buddhist, Hindu,Muslim, They’re all just labels. Its not important what I am, its important that I am.”
Bobby’s album “The Future History” is a collection of beautifully crafted songs that truly capture the soul, treating it with love and care before handing it back to you considerably replenished.
