BOBBY WEST meticulously pieces together tracks to paint an authentic depiction of his world.

A dark gritty world of which he ruthlessly laments, yet like a man in the gutter reaching for the stars, Bobby gilds the edges of his world to create something beautiful. His lens is tinted with a sun drenched glow at stark contrast to his surroundings. A sweet juxtaposition that echoes in his music as he sings of terrible things in beautiful melodies, like a council estate Sinatra his golden voice self-deprecates in alluring harmony."

Line Up

Bobby West sings of terrible things in beautiful melodies, like a council estate Sinatra his golden voice self deprecates in alluring harmony. With a collection crooked ballads over which Bobby howls his gritty lullabies, he invites the listener to peer in.

At a glance West's world is one of beauty, shimmering string sections and resonant pianos call to mind the chanson style of Jacques Brel. But in Lynchian fashion, Bobby strips away the veneer to reveal twisted tales of spent love, bad romances and the grim reality's of modern culture. There is a rare, lived in truth all too apparent in Bobby's nouveau croon.
