Somewhere deep in the heart of everything lies a melody. It speaks to our truest selves, binds us together with the ones we love, and brings out the best part of who we are. Bobby Jo Valentine is a singer/songwriter who chases after this particular kind of music.
He writes songs that travel light, but “grow deeper and deeper with each further listen”, as the music publication Soundtrack to My Day describes.
The poetic nature of his stories and songs has resulted in many notable awards and a growing, supportive, loyal following. Bobby seeks to write music that means something good, and speaks hope into the beautiful, sacred, terrifying, mesmerizing world that we live in.
Bobby has been awarded Song of the Year three times from West Coast Songwriter’s Association, is an out gay advocate for equal rights for all and has performed thousands of events around the globe.
His most recent collections, Fox Eyes, Whale Heart and Maybe Stars, are available everywhere music is offered online.
