Bob Malone

Award-winning pianist/singer/songwriter Bob Malone´s new CDFreedom release, Like It Or Not, distributed in the states by Redeye, shows a restless artist expanding his musical palette. Along with the usual razor-sharp songcraft and funky New Orleans grooves we´ve come to expect from Bob´s first two albums, there are also some sweeping, Randy Newman-esque orchestral moments as well. Island music strains are heard from time to time, and some of Bob´s finest ever ballad singing and writing are featured on this release. Through all of this musical travelling, Bob´s sly lyrical wit, virtuoso piano chops, and whiskey-soaked vocals are always along for the ride.

A real indie success story, Bob Malone´s previous two Delta Moon/Chartmaker releases, The Darkest Part Of The Night (1996) and Bob Malone (1998), introduced him to a national audience and vast critical acclaim. With no advertising budget and nothing but continuous grassroots solo touring and live radio performances to spread the word, Bob has sold over 10,000 copies of these CD´s. Selections from Darkest Part Of The Night won the Great American Love Song Contest, and appeared on the Performing Songwriter Magazine Best Of The DIY´s compilation disc. By the time Bob´s self-titled CD was released, he had been voted one of the "Best Unsigned Artists In L.A." five years in a row by Music Connection Magazine, and had been featured on NPR´s Acoustic Cafe "Best 5 Unsigned Artists In America" special. Bob has won songwriting awards in Boston, Texas, California, New York, Florida, and Michigan and has been featured on NPR´s Car Talk, Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour, Acoustic Cafe, and Rock & Roots as well as The Travel Channel, and the ABC television series Cupid. Bob has opened for The Neville Brothers, Rev. Al Green, Boz Scaggs, Vonda Shepard, Average White Band, Manhattan Transfer, and Eric Burdon, among many others.

In addition to Bob´s day-job as a touring musician, he has also has success as a writer with his unique style of gonzo-journalism. One of his essays will appear in the book Working Musicians, due out on HarperCollins next year.

Born and raised in New Jersey, Bob Malone currently resides in Los Angeles, where he lives with his girlfriend Karen Nash, and their two cats, Bacchus and Zulu.
