Bob has spent the last six years touring relentlessly in Europe, where he maintains a large fan base in addition to his fans in the U.S. His most recent release of "Texas to Tennessee" in February, 2006, was followed up with a 95 day tour in the UK over that 2006 summer. From an early age, Bob's creative feet were firmly planted in the Mississippi Delta mud and his songs began to feature characters whose lives reflected the life style along the rivers of the South over the past one hundred years. Growing up in Memphis, not only was he influenced by the icons of his youth such as Elvis and Johnny Cash but also from his mother, who was a radio star during the Great Depression performing with the Big Bands of the era. Thinking of his roots, a 100 year photo of his grandmother graces the cover of his 1998 release of Gettysburg to Graceland.
When talking with him, he says his greatest honor and accomplishment is being asked in person by Johnny Cash to join what would become Cash's final tour. As a seasoned songwriter and performer, Bob has found his own voice spinning rootsy, blues-flavored tales of the Delta in a conversational language of the heart. Just as Bob says about his music, "I don't know if these stories are truebut they happened to me." Ringtones for Bob's songs at:
