Bobby Long is originally from England, but left the open mics of London and has been living in New York City for long enough now that its influence has seeped into his life and music. It’s no accident, as this young songwriter studied American folk music and followed the voices of his heroes Hank Williams, Woody Guthrie, and Elliott Smith to the streets of their homeland — even using the late Smith’s guitar amp in recording his album. Here, we find him playing solo in a park, accompanied only by his faithful dog.
Featured Song: “Yesterday, Yesterday”
