Artist: Bobby Long

Title: Ode to Thinking

UPC: 766397465425

British singer-songwriter Bobby Long has built a dedicated fan base around his hauntingly poetic lyrics and catchy melodies. On his third record, ODE TO THINKING, Long Returns to the basics: a guitar, sturdy songs, and his singularly plaintive voice. The album’s 11 tracks showcase a hard-won maturity that belies Long’s 29 years. A Prolific songwriter who has been compared to his own heroes – Elliot Smith, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan – Long’s vision for ODE TO THINKING was honed in a live setting, where each song found its place on the album after being perfected on stage.


His Swaggery growl goes tender in the right places; his tunes are sturdy but graceful, like the curve of something hand-carved.” -Los Angeles Times

Long is a master of getting to the heart of these sad stories of the flesh, of these souls just battling it out with one another, reaching to be touched or touched back.” -Daytrotter
