Two Sides to This Town

Two Sides To This Town ~ is at it's core, a rock record. It grew from other places and found it's home here. It seems every town is divided somewhat now, I don't have the answers but I'm looking. Maybe some answers are hiding in the grooves of this album. 

"Bobbo's newest solo album, Two Sides to This Town, features Byrnes' on guitar, mandolin, keys, and voice, sits somewhere between alt-country and the Replacements -- Springsteen's storytelling, Paul Westerberg's barroom musings, Ryan Adams' casual command of melody." ~ ZT Amplifiers Artist Spotlight

"The Best Kick-Ass Heartbreakin’ Alt. Country Rock LA Has To Offer." ~ The Rocking Magpie

"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

"New high quality musical building blocks from Bobbo Byrnes who shares solo tours with bands like The Fallen Stars and Riddle & The Stars. Byrnes is on a live stage around 150 times a year, in his own name and together with the two band configurations. It's strange that he is not a bigger name with his secure, flashy and sometimes shabby northern country and Americana accurately described as more like Paul Westerberg than Lynyrd Skynyrd. On the "Two Sides To This Town" (Songs & Whispers), which is the sequel to the solo debut "Motel Americana" which was released in March last year, he continues straight through with ten songs, three covers and seven of his own, showing the exquisite personal singer / songwriter he is."  ~Blues Roots Corner

"Two sides to this town is a classic piece of American Heartland Rock! That was my first thought when hearing the opening cut of this album, Angelia, a fantastic uptempo heartland rocker that is clearly in the style of all those legendary artists that made this genre quite unique within the rockworld. Yes of course Bruce Springsteen, but also Tom Petty, Bob Seger, Dawes, Michael Stanley, Ryan Adams, Drivin’ N Cryin’ and John Mellencamp come to mind when listening to Bobbo Byrnes. This is American Rock at it's finest! Bobbo himself plays in several bands actually and this solo effort seems like an in-between record (correct me if I'm wrong here), but without a doubt, this is a lovely record that hits the right spot here for sure. Besides Angelia, other highlights are Glad, Jealous kind and Vegas, all showing Heartland Pop/Rock at it's best! Here and there we can also hear some calmer ballad ish material and even a bit altcountry, but Bobbo is mostly rocking for us on Two sides to this town, so make sure to check out this release a.s.a.p. in case this is your music style at:"  ~Struttwerzine

"Traveling troubadour, Bobbo Byrnes returns with an engaging new album of Americana singles aptly called Two Sides To This Town. He's got a keen eye for capturing small town life (perhaps because he's lived it first hand) and putting it to song in a way that's universally relatable in the American landscape. His vocals are friendly and convincing as he and wife Tracy Byrnes on bass, Matt Froehlich on drums and Danny Ott on lead guitar weave masterful tales of life and love. Favored tracks include the wonderful sentiment of "Heart Like Mine," the enlightening "Jealous Kind," the noir vibe of "Welfare Cadillac," and the chart topping arena anthem, "Summer Wine." Byrnes will be coming to New England in October. Be sure to catch him live." ~ Metronome Magazine Sept 2018

"This 'Two Sides to This Town' is the successor to the 'Motel Americana' released in 2017 (album report) . This album is immediately food for the real Alt-Country roxkers among us with outliers like ' Heart Like Mine ', ' Massachusetts'and the particularly beautiful' Welfare Cadillac '.  This 'Two Sides To This Town' is well thought-through Alt-Country with a dash of rock in it. An alternation with powerful rock songs and inspiring ballads." ~ Rootsville.eu
