Love on the Border
'Love on the Border' is Bobby's third album and perhaps, his most musically diverse. It ranges from the Buena Vista Cuban feel of the title track, to the completely rocking 'Anyway' to the folky/country 'Some Song' featuring friends Sarah Lee Guthrie and Johnny Irion. Bobby's attention to songwriting ties it all together. Bobby is a sixth-generation musician. He began performing at age 7 in his father's band, and left at 17 to pursue his widening musical interests. As a performer, Bobby has shared the bill with some of the top country and folk artists, including Vince Gill, Bill Staines, Bill Morrissey, Deana Carter, Bryan White, Arlo Guthrie, The Neilds, and Jess Klein. As a sought-after lead guitarist he has shared the stage with George Jones, Asleep at the Wheel, Willie Nelson, The Bellamy Brothers, Waylon Jennings, and many others. Bobby has written songs that have aired on the hit television series Touched By An Angel, Walker Texas Ranger, Soul Food, and Judging Amy, among others. Another of his songs was featured in the Danny Devito/Bette Midler movie Drowning Mona. He has performed at the legendary Bluebird Cafe and other venues in Nashville, and his guitar and vocal work have been featured on recordings by Arlo Guthrie, Sarah Lee Guthrie, Bernice Lewis and a host of other album projects. Bobby is a former staff writer with HoriPro Entertainment Group in Nashville. Today he also works as a producer and recording engineer at Derek Studios, where he has shared his knowledge and skills with many artists of varying styles, ranging from folk to Americana to world music. Bobby has spent time in the Andes of Patagonia, Argentina, a pristine wilderness far from telephones and electricity, accessible only by horseback. His encounters with the simple life and beautiful people of this region inspired several of the songs and emotions of Already Home. His travel experiences also encompass sharing music with the chief of a Dogon village in Mali, West Africa, and building houses in Nicaragua with Habitat for Humanity. Back home in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts, Bobby lives in a small-town community where the love and lives of those around him continually provide the wellspring for new songs.
