XPoNential Music Festival 2010 Artist

Bobby Long

Bobby LongBritish 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 Cafe" national broadcast. He released a collection of live performances from the Dangerous Summer 2009 tour, featuring the 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 will release his first studio album-produced by Liam Watson (Grammy´┐Ż-winner for Elephant by The White Stripes').
