Sounds a lot like The Fallen Stars but a little bit more stripped back, mostly acoustic based but still rocking...

Follows the musical storytelling tradition of Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle and Gram Parsons.”


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”

Been holed up getting stuff done.  Stuff is almost ready to be released into the world - if you're into downloads and not cds - you can do it now!

"Two Sides To This Town" is now available.  Download and enjoy.  CDs are off getting made and t-shirts will be available soon as well as tote bags!

I've even branched out into USB sticks.  I like the format where I put my albums and artwork on the drive and a few little bonus things as well.  Hope you like it too.  These can all be found on the "Shop" page.

Talk atcha soon.

Feb 26, 2018 

It's finally cooled off here in Anaheim and I'm putting on the finishing touches of my new album "Two Sides To This Town" and it's a doozy.  20 songs all together but in a different way!  It's the same 10 songs ~ twice!  The first 10 are full band versions of the songs and tracks 11-20 are the same songs played in a stripped down acoustic format, closer to how I perform them solo. You spoke, I listened. I hope you dig.  

More coming up soon. Tomorrow I'm with the graphic designer and the first 10 are off getting mastered right now.



September 12, 2017 

Hey Everybody!  

So it's been a little while. Sorry about that - Tracy and I have been on the east coast and now we're back west and moved into our new place in Anaheim* and getting used to the Disney fireworks every night at 9 pm. And having a new neighborhood means finding some new venues and keeping up with the old ones as well.**  

Oh! And the OC Weekly! I had an interview this week with the Weekly and it should be in Thursday's paper - so that's pretty cool. I'm becoming a regular interviewee type of person and it's hard to not sound stupid in these things!***  


Wednesday, Sept 13 - Tracy and Bobbo's Anniversary  
Beatnik Bandito Music Emporium  
417 N. Broadway, Santa Ana, CA  
Americana Music Night  
w/ Mario Rojas and Young Valley  
Show at 8 we're on at 9:30  

Now what's cool and unusual about this show is that 1) It's me and Tracy's 20th Wedding Anniversary so we will be bringing cake with us. and 2) Tracy and I will be joined by Kyrie Anderson and Django Rowe, they are friends of ours from Australia - Kyrie plays drums and Django plays guitar. They are just in town for 2 days and they're playing this show and then going to Disneyland. It's going to be way fun.  

Sunday, Sept 17  
Can't Stop The Serenity - Orange County  
AMC Classic Woodbridge Cinema  
4626 Barranca Parkway, Irvine, CA  
2-6 pm - we play before the afternoon matinee of Serenity.  

Now this show will be our Firefly themed music. We'll be playing songs from our two Leaves on the Wind Music Project cds and proceeds from today will benefit Equality Now. We did a rehearsal for it last night and it was sounding amazing. We had Matt Froehlich on the cajon kit, Georgiana Hennessy on the violin and Matt Tonge on mandolin and banjo.  

We're super excited for these shows as they will be unique and lots of fun. Really hope you can make it out to one or both of the shows!  

And this week's free song is "Stronger than Steel" from our Firefly project. It's a song about how we often don't see how strong women are underneath but just see how pretty they are on the surface. It's probably one of the prettiest songs we've ever written and we tried to capture the spirit of a fancy ball where folks would be waltzing - feel free to waltz along with it.  

Alrighty, back to unpacking stuff - I have actually planted some zucchini in the backyard and some flowers out front already! I'm a regular Farmer Bobbo!  

As always, thanks for hanging with us and see you soon.

*Sue: Hey man, you're not from here, alright. You don't know how it is. I grew up in L.A.  
Trent: Anaheim.  

**Looking to book at the Packing House in Anaheim soon. Anyone have the contact there?  

***I'm hoping I was successful in this endeavor.

August 24, 2017 

Well that was a summer.  I think all told I played about 65 shows in 80 days across Europe. All of which I documented in my tour diary.*

I'm writing you from Cape Cod, Dennisport to be more specific. If you don't know where that is, imagine Cape Cod as an arm sticking out of Massachusetts and we are just before the elbow. Tracy and I are sort of relaxing. Well, it is very relaxing here - we can see the ocean as it's only about 50 yards away and there's a nice seabreeze blowing in the windows. I've been hard at work here and staying out of the sun** updating websites, cataloging shows, booking new tours and scheming for the next release.  

It's going to be September when we get back to Southern California and we have a few shows coming up there as well as a run up the West Coast all the way to Portland, Oregon in November and then a benefit I'm organizing in New Hampshire in December.***

Tracy and I are almost done with a new Leaves on the Wind cd and we're playing a Can't Stop The Serenity event on Sept 17 in Irvine, CA.  We are also 4 songs into a new album that we've tentatively titled "Making Wishes on the Satellites".  

This week and a half "off" is the most "off" I've been in a long time and I'm going a little stircrazy.  It's been almost a week since I've played a show and I don't know what to do.****



*No link to tour diary yet but it is on my facebook page
**Never trust a tanned musician.
***Because everyone should go to New Hampshire in December.
****Technically it's been 5 days.

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, and roots. Singer / Songwriter-Americana, who does not need a Plan B.”
