West Coast Songwriters Association 2013 Songwriter of the Year Bobby Jo Valentine performs his unique brand of hopeful pop/folk in an intimate semi-outdoor setting at a private home in Forestville, CA.
Valentine's lyrics explore the tense high wire between light and dark, but he doesn't always wrap things up with a tidy answer. The singer's sense of realism, charm and infectious melodies and vocals have earned the praises of industry vets like Brian Lucey, mastering engineer for The Shin and The Black Keys, who said, "Bobby writes with a sweetness and honesty seldom heard in acoustic pop music." Bursting with energy and realistic optimism and filled with uplifting, honest messages about hope and life's struggles, Bobby continues to gather new listeners with every show. "Armed with just a guitar and ukulele, Bobby aims straight for the heart." -Bruce Kaplan, Folk Unlimited
Bobby lives north of San Francisco with his partner, and is on tour around the nation 10-15 days every month, developing a strong, loyal following with warm, inviting melodies and lyrics filled with depth and hope.
Doors open at 6pm for mingling and meeting friends; the music begins at 7pm.
