Texas based singer/ songwriter, Bob Simpson creates tales of life & love. If you had to put a label on him it would be “Americana”. His songs are a melding of the old & new. Bob’s songwriting influences are a crazy quilt of past and present greats: Hank, Townes and Dylan…Ryan Adams and Cory Brannan. Bob absorbs it all and looks to carry the torch to the next generation with classics of his own. Born and raised in West Texas, Bob remembers when he was just 2 years old and his dad played him a Merle Haggard album. That’s all it took. He was hooked on classic country….Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Bob Wills, Marty Robbins, George Jones, Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn, just to name a few. When Bob was15, he read about Eric Clapton teaching himself to play guitar at 17, so (no money to afford lessons) he taught himself to play guitar. Later on, listening to James Iha’s “ Let It Come Down” and Ryan Adams (writing with Whiskeytown), he was inspired to write. We all have questions and doubts about life and love. Bob’s songs give us an insightful look at the sacrifices, challenges and consequences of living. Bob Simpson’s first cd was released on Aug. 1st on Wayfair Records.

The whole album is FANTASTIC!!! Never before have I heard an Americana album with so much truth in the songs! Bob's CD will take you through a journey about life, love, tragedy, and hope. It's a journey I think we all can definitely relate to. Congratulations Bob!!!

Bob has a certain magic in the way he writes and performs. How you can feel good after hearing these beautiful and sad songs? I don't know how, but I do....

Makes me laugh and cry at the same time. Hasn't happened since Lowell George left us. "A Million Times" is a sure hit in my book. Listen up people!!

I have known Bob as a friend and fellow songwriter for almost ten years now. This cd will speak to your heart and mind in ways that language alone cannot. It is a musical parade of love, loss, and salvation, beautiful in every way. Buy it!
