Bobby Long’s ‘A Winter Tale’ Out Now / Tonight Show Performance on Feb 3rd

It’s only fitting that the release of A Winter Tale coincides with another winter storm here in New York City.  Today might just be the perfect day to sit back with a cup of hot chocolate and take in these winter tales.

Recorded in London, the 11-track album showcases Bobby’s raw vocal talent and poetic acoustic genius as well as Nona Hendryx (LaBelle) on backing vocals, B. J. Cole (Elton John, Sting) on pedal steel, and collaboration with Icelandic singer Lay Low on several songs.

A Winter Tale, is available via full-album streams all this week on AOL Music and Soundcloud – featuring exclusive song introductions by Bobby.

Check out the official Bobby Long Music Store for CD, Digital Download (MP3), and Vinyl (2-LP set w/ 3 vinyl only bonus tracks) plus web-order exclusive t-shirt and 3 song live EP. The album is also available on iTunes.

We aren’t the only Bobby lovers! Here’s what the critics have to say about the soulful British musician taking on American Folk with a fresh, yet deeply rooted sound.

“With raw vocal power and smart, evocative lyrics, Bobby Long is a folk singer with a spirited intensity that puts him outside and above the masses of singer-songwriter roaming our cities, towns, and social networks.” -BLOGCRITICS.COM

“Long is a master…” – DAYTROTTER

“All his songs are like a well-orchestrated ballet of chord progressions and vocals that pluck at the deepest confined thoughts of your soul”

“Long’s emergence as an up-and-coming artist is the stuff Hollywood loves to make movies about. He continues to amaze audiences with a bare-bones sound reminiscent of early Bob Dylan.” -POLLSTAR
