Before you go any further - I have a new and improved website here: BobboByrnes.com
There is still lots of stuff on here but the new and improved site is there
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.
“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.”
Nice Things People Have Said About Me
"The Best Kick-Ass Heartbreakin’ Alt. Country Rock LA Has To Offer." ~ Rocking Magpie
"Follows the musical storytelling tradition of Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle and Gram Parsons." ~ BrooWaha.com
“Bobbo writes deeply affecting material and it is delivered with an authenticity that is exhilarating. Even on disc, his blend of roots, rock, country, folk and pop is delivered with the wallop of The Clash” ~ Orange County Register
"While Byrnes has his own strong artistic voice (which includes his stellar skills on guitar, mandolin and keyboards), his songs and passion will appeal to fans of Springsteen, Ryan Adams, Dawes and John Mellencamp. That is some good company to be sure." ~ Rock'n'Roll Truth
“The whole thing is held together by the unobtrusive singing of the sympathetic artist, who feels comfortable with this multi-faceted mixture of country rock, alt.country and roots. Singer / Songwriter-Americana, who does not need a Plan B.” ~ Country Jukebox (translated from German)
“Hold Me' betrays an incredible sense of empathy within its lamentful leanings - Bobbo Byrnes has a sure sense of today's misplaced sensibilities and offers an ingenius remedy.” ~ The Akademia "Americana Song of the Month" July 2017.
"Bobbo Byrnes is becoming one of the hardest working musicians in the Americana community, and his first solo album is further proof of his abilities. Motel Americana is a definite Get It if you love great music." ~ LA Music Critic
"I really enjoyed the new album by Bobbo Byrnes, the charm of his voice on these catching melodies that give the feeling that we already know all these good songs... A very efficient country rock album... The perfect disc for the coming summer... I will air tracks 2, 3, 4, 7, 10...
Merci" ~ Radio ISA, FM France.
"The multi-faceted voice and the skillful guitar playing of the musician provide for a lot of variety and take the listeners from the beginning with the journey. Time added, with the Bottleneck: Byrnes only uses effects when they are really necessary, otherwise his guitar is enough. Or rather, his guitars, because the singer-songwriter always drags several." ~ NWZOnline (translated from the German)
