Bobcat Rob is an American Songwriter with a voice likened to honey drizzled over burning coals. His songs are as uplifting as they are haunting, drawing on visceral truths and common threads to weave captivating tales. From quiet to loud, reserved to explosive, each song carries its own weight and settles deep into the listener. Off the stage, the music never stops. Bobcat is known for his alternative shows, passion driven musical engagements for whomever happens to be around. From the streets of Santa Cruz and San Francisco to backyard campfires and gatherings all over the country.
After touring the country in a beat up RV with his band in 2013, Bobcat set up camp in the secluded mountain town of Lee Vining, CA where he wrote and recorded his debut solo record “The Cat’s in the Saddle.” An album full of Country Soul and Gritty Folk music, from heartwarming ballads to full fledged barn burners. “Pass Me That Whiskey” is an irresistible campfire ballad. “Shadows” is a haunting number while still maintaining an uplifting message. “The Ticket” is an upbeat number that tells the tale of an unfortunate stranger looking for direction. The story is told and then summed up with, “As the story goes, you never know, who’ll you’ll come across or where you’ll go. But there’s a little bit of comfort in the unknown and I think that’s a good state of mind.”
Now, based out of Santa Cruz, CA, Bobcat continues to tour both as a solo act and with his band, The Nightly Howl. His second full length album is set to be released in 2018.
“In general, Bobcat’s stories are damn straight relatable and inspiring. Bobcat is an artist worth supporting.” – Drew Fisher, Co-Founder, Lost Sierra Hoedown
