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 three 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; and the critically-acclaimed Ode to Thinking (2015, Compass Records), which applies his varied musical influences to a new collection of compelling songs. The vinyl version called Ode, comprising six tracks from the CD and three previously unreleased tracks, is also available. In addition, Long has published two volumes of poetry—Losing My Brotherhood (2012) and the newly released Losing My Misery, both available from amazon and other retailers.
According to WXPN Folk Show Host Ian Zolitor, Philadelphia-based Kalob Griffin is a “talented and insightful local songwriter that harkens back to the folk musicians of the 70’s who influenced his style.” Griffin is preparing to release his debut record “We Can Be Stronger” in summer of 2017.
