He is a true follower of the Kerouac philosophy of hitchhiking and storytelling. He's been singing and strumming most of his life and these days he's inspired by a Brene' Brown Tedtalk, a Calvin Coolidge quote about persistence, a sixteen word poem about a wheelbarrow, and a PBS documentary on country music.
“It only takes a cursory listen to ‘Two Sides To This Town’ to recognize the fact that an important and essential new artist has indeed arrived.”

Bobbo & David Lindley at the Coach House 

I'm pretty excited to be opening for the legendary David Lindley at The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on Friday, Jan 10, 2020. 

This should be a fun night and I hear David always puts on an interesting show. 

Please if you are planning on going to this show - buy your tickets from me. It's not a pay-to-play type of thing but they are charging $20 at the door and they gave me tickets to sell so they would know people were actually coming to see me and continue booking me these gigs. And my tickets are…

"At that point, however, opener "Angelia" hits everything: that is pure Mellencamp-in-a-pondering-town: how things are going in the US today: everyone and everything seems to be divided and nobody is sure of anything, except for your own Big Equal. Someone had to say it clearly and that is what Bobbo Byrnes does, albeit that this record is absolutely not a political pamphlet. No, this is particularly good, sturdy, contemporary Americana, particularly suitable for long, preferably nocturnal, car journeys!"
