Bobby’s love for music itself began when he was young. Growing up in Arlington, Texas, and listening to the country stars of the time (such as Garth Brooks and George Strait), he decided early on that he wanted to learn how to play the guitar. During his eight years of playing and studying, Bobby discovered his true love: Texas music and the likes of Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Cory Morrow and Walt Wilkins.
Inspired by his musical mentors, Bobby decided to start writing his own songs. Listening to bands like Cross Canadian Ragweed, Kevin Fowler and The Randy Rogers Band also helped him craft his own compositional “voice,” which bears strong similarities to old-school Southern rockers like Lynyrd Skynyrd and Creedence Clearwater Revival.
However, it wasn’t until only a year ago that Bobby finally began performing. After feeling the adrenaline rush from the applause and positive feedback from other singer/songwriters during an “Open Mic” night in Plano, Texas, Bobby decided to pursue a musical career seriously. Playing multiple venues across the D/FW area eventually led to a meeting with Walt Wilkins, one of his idols – and one of Texas’s best singer/songwriters. Along with Walt’s longtime producing partner, Tim Lorsch, Bobby and Walt decided to collaborate on a record. The supply of singer/songwriters in Texas grows every year, but Bobby has already made the connections and produced the material he needs to break away from the crowd and make a big impact in a short time. Having started his career recording an album with a music legend, Bobby is set for a long and fulfilling career in the Texas music industry.
