A former leader of San Francisco club band The Luttingers (featuring Camper Van Beethoven bass player Victor Krummenacher), Bob Kannen is now a solo singer/songwriter on the northeast circuit. His new CD 'Receiver' is an inward-looking, eclectic album that was cut with a full band at Brooklyn, NY's Fireproof Recording and produced by Adam Lasus (whose engineering/production credits include Yo La Tengo, Juliana Hatfield and Ex-Miracle Legion leader Mark Mulcahey). It features a stellar cast of players including Joe McGinty and Leah Coloff, supporting Bob's singing, writing and acoustic guitar. Bob's introspective lyrics and unique perspective reflect his work as a poet and novelist and they duly demand and reward repeated listening. Utilizing a personal and eclectic songwriting style laced with pop and country influence, Receiver has a classic rock vibe filtered through an indie sensibility.
