Bobby Long
Bobby Long British singer-songwriter Bobby Long has been writing his finely-crafted songs since taking up the guitar at age 16. After relocating from the countryside of South West England, he became a fixture at London �s open-mic nights while attending university there. Long�s intensely personal songs resonate with audiences (not surprisingly, he credits Bob Dylan, Elliott Smith and Leonard Cohen as key influences), expanding his fan base exponentially during the massive six-month 2009 Dangerous Summer tour that comprised over 100 shows in cities across the U.S. and Canada.

The 10-song Dirty Pond Songs CD he recorded in his London bedroom is only available at his shows. The CD�s �Left to Lie� topped the iTunes Unsigned chart and climbed to No. 8 on the Folk chart. Other popular tracks are the atmospheric story-song �The Bounty of Mary Jane,� which is also available from iTunes, and the ballad �Who Have You Been Loving,� which has received U.S. radio airplay resulting in his appearance on NPR�s �World Caf� national broadcast. He released a collection of live performances from the Dangerous Summer 2009 tour, also available at his shows. It features the digital single �My Darling Belle,� which reached #2 on the iTunes Singer-Songwriter chart. In April, 2010, Bobby Long signed a label deal with ATO Records (founded by Dave Matthews), which plans to release his first studio album�produced by Liam Watson (Grammy�-winner for Elephant by The White Stripes�)�later in the year. He is always on tour.
