The perpetually unfolding acoustic guitar style is ethereal and healing, spiritual with a down home twist. A synthesis of things, people, and places that have touched him deeply, Bob's music contains elements of Japan where he spent part of his childhood growing up - then later, solitary years in a quiet rural home with only a handful of albums to listen to, no TV, and a 1936 D-18 Martin that a traveling musician had traded to Bob's grandpa. The calming, soothing effect of Reflecting Pool (Bob's current release) is benefiting local therapeutic practices and children's programs. Listeners feel alive . . . refreshed . . . made new as they drift into a flow of copious visions and melt away with the music. Straight from the ethers, this music is healing and penetrating to the soul.
