BIOGRAPHY

Here is the most Bob’s personal project, a bit far from classic heavy metal and more focused on an acoustic/folk/prog approach. Influenced by bands from the 70s (Yes, Jethro Tull, Eagles, Led Zeppelin) or the great Ayreon, we deal here with a softer sound where guitars are the central point of it, featuring folk and hard ‘n heavy shades

Bob did record his solo albums between some of his other bands’ recording sessions or live activities. The very 1st album “Between Time & Space”, much more considered as a demo, was recorded in 2005 with a very small budget, but showed the main ideas that define the music mark today. Previously not planned to be released, about 1000 copies were however produced in 2009.

In 2008 he began recording guitars for the second album “Flying Music” but had to slow down the whole process because of all his new other bands and proposals.

With an ideal new line up, they finally did it in 2012 but Bob 1st refused to sing on it. Much more assumed as a Heavy Rock/Metal singer. He admits his solo albums are not his favorites on vocals compared to Debackliner or Quiet Human. “But things will be by far better right now”. Not totally convinced of the whole result, especially on vocals, Bob finally decided to release the album in 2016 after a proposal from the italian label Underground Symphony.

Underground Symphony describes its second album “Flying Music” as a masterpiece for fans of Yes, Jethro Tull and Ayreon.
