Bobby Pennock is an accomplished singer/songwriter whose style, albeit unique, is reminiscent of those celebrated folksingers of the 1960s and 70s, like Paul Simon and Harry Chapin (with a heaping helping of The Beatles thrown in), crafting songs that catch you off guard with lines like: Don’t try to reason – a little thought might give you heed/You don’t need to be wise when pleasing all your wants/By disguising them as needs... Listening to him perform is like watching a good magician. When it's over, you can't help but ask: How did he do that?
Bobby's first album, 10,000 Stories, is packed with such lyrical tricks - a blend of humor, caged emotion, suburban zen - delivered innocently enough inside smooth vocals and fetching guitar work.
Currently working on his second album, Bobby is finishing out the year with his partner in crime Terry Birkett on a few select stages in Southeastern Michigan.
