“Bobby has pursued a passion for the blues all his life. In today’s music scene there are hundreds of talented guitarists vying for the brass ring, and there are many, many great players out there. But there are very few with the heart and soul of Bobby Kyle. Blunt and to the point, Bobby’s singular styling resonates with maturity, talent and inspiration, bringing us a genesis of contemporary music that is characteristically all his own.
Kyle, who now leads his own high-energy quartet at clubs and festivals around the Northeast, spent eight years touring the world with the late guitarist, songwriter and singer Johnny ‘Clyde’ Copeland. Johnny was one of contemporary blues’ more gifted songwriters, breaking new lyrical and thematic ground with each new album he recorded through the 1980s and ’90s. Bobby was backing up Bill Dicey by the late seventies, and the pair later became a duo. In the early eighties, Bobby joined the house band at the Stuffed Pepper, a Tampa Bay blues mecca. There he worked with such luminaries as James Peterson, Johnny Shines, Raful Neal, Mary McClain Smith, and Tabby Thomas. In 1984 Handy Award winner Eddie Kirkland invited Bobby to join his band. After six years with Eddie, Bobby joined the band of Grammy Award winner Johnny ‘Clyde’ Copeland. Bobby performed with this legendary Texas bluesman on major-label recordings, and in concerts, festivals, and clubs worldwide until Johnny’s death in 1997. Between touring dates with Eddie Kirkland and Johnny Copeland, Bobby took his solo act on the road, performing his own material at nightclubs and festivals throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. Bobby’s emotional, soulful voice rings true, and is forged with a raw, distinctive quality all his own. Honest and forthright, Bobby’s original songs tell the story of the everyman, with a passion born of life, love, and loss.” Listen to bobby here –
