Bobby Bare Jr.

(Bobby Bare Jr. appears thanks to a generous donation from Alison Weir and John Bric)

Bobby Bare, Jr. could’ve phoned in a career. He could’ve exploited the fact that he’s the son of iconic Country Music Hall of Famer Bobby Bare, was born into Nashville’s Music Row elite, and counted artists like Shel Silverstein as close family friends and George Jones and Tammy Wynette as next door neighbors. Instead, Bobby blazed a path of unique songwriting craftsmanship with a voice that blows through you like an unyielding wind on the desolate prairie.
.
With a big-as-the-room persona, an ability to rock the doors off the most jaded of clubs, the heart to hold a room completely still with just his guitar, and a genius for arrangement, Bobby Bare, Jr. is one of the most unique performers around. He is adept at abandoning common sense in favor of laying at the feet of a rambunctious, freewheeling, unfettered and unhinged muse.
.
In the late 90’s, he fronted the boss hog rock band, Bare Jr. With their two records, Boo-tay and Brainwasher, they memorably rocked out on a Nirvana-on-Skynryd-not-Sabbath groove, more indebted to the homebrew than “The Other H.” He keeps himself even busier by appearing on albums by indie rock heroes like the Silver Jews and Frank Black and My Morning Jacket. Few that we have found can combine humor, pain, and anger in such an effortlessly well-crafted manner. If encountered in public, beware: Bobby is a big, gregarious, good-natured fellow who will giddily talk music (from the Smiths to Roger Miller to Metallica to Dolly Parton–sometimes in one breath) until the bartender is tossing you both out.

Orcas based/Panamanian artist and producer Lilo Sanchez, whose musical career spans more than 20 years is best known for his work with the celebrated Panamanian band, Señor Loop. He now shares with us his solo work which combines that mysterious Latin flavor with haunting melodies, bluesy rock and R&B sounds.
