Bobbo Byrnes

Bobbo Byrnes is a storytelling singer/songwriter, a throwback to a bygone era of mix tapes and AM Gold. In true Springsteen-ian fashion, he took up guitar to find himself, and because it made him look cool.

"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.
