Bobby Long
Bobby Long
British singer-songwriter Bobby Long emerged from London’s club scene with a reputation for creating memorable songs inhabited by hauntingly poetic lyrics. He relocated to New York in 2009 and has since released four CDs inhabited by powerful original material: A Winter Tale (2011)—an homage to his acoustic roots; Wishbone (2013)—a gritty opus that showcases his sorrow-filled voice and stellar guitar playing; the critically-acclaimed Ode to Thinking (2015, Compass Records), which applies his varied musical influences to a compelling collection of original songs, and the latest, Sultans, arriving on March 1, 2019.

Of him, one writer recently wrote: “Bobby Long is a British-born singer-songwriter who wraps his voice around the truth without judgment, melancholy without tears. His gentle guitar style allows for his plaintive and honest lyrics to crash like thunder. It's the blues with a solution. There are many comparisons to be made, but toss those aside for a moment won't you and leave it to the man, his guitar, and you.”

Additionally, Long has published two volumes of poetry—Losing My Brotherhood (2012) and Losing My Misery (2016), both available from amazon and other retailers.

Raised in the southwest corner of Missouri as a child of a nurse and a metal maker, Luke was warmed by the voices of Bruce Springsteen, Jim Croce, and The Doors.. The passing of the seasons brought on influences from The Counting Crows to Tom Waits. Luke’s love for music matured over time from fan to writer to performer.

With a batch full of poems turned into songs, Luke recorded his first of three albums in less than 18 months, It Won’t Last Forever, A Fading Frontier, and Love, Laura and The Bomb. In 2012 Luke harnessed his landscape storytelling in his fourth album, Winter Kissing on the Spring ...

In the Spring of 2015, Luke released his 5th album, For You, I Built a Mountain, with one of his most influential inspirations, Joshua James, as producer.

Luke is currently working on several creative projects to include an indie film based on his album, For You, I Built a Mountain, his first collection of short stories, and his next full length album, A Heart Full of Wolves (TBA).
