When Bobby Long released his debut album ‘A Winter Tale’ I don’t think many people expected it to be this good. The 24 year old from West England will remind his listeners of an early Bob Dylan. Bobby generated popularity after writing the song ‘Let It Sign’ for friend and actor Rob Pattison to perform in the twilight film. Long has continued to produce musical gold and has captured the true essence of folk perfectly on his first album. He is one of the few artists that don’t get the recognition that they deserve.
The thing that drew me into the album was the simplicity of it, just raw music at its best. Each song tells a chilling story and no two sounds the same, my personal favourite being ‘Two Years Old’. This is most likely the best album I’ve heard in a few years, and I highly recommend you giving him a listen.
