Bobby Long is traveling once again, reminding us just how far he’s come since ten tracks he recorded in his bedroom emerged as 2009’s Dirty Pond Songs EP.  Of course, there’s the “Twilight” tie-in where the song he co-wrote with Marcus Foster – “Let Me Sign” – was sung by the film’s star Robert Pattinson.

Since then he’s recorded two studio albums for ATO Records – 2011’s A Winter Tale and this year’s Wishbone.

But while Long’s initial break may have come from celluloid vampires, home-taping, open-mic nights and word-of-mouth, his talent is undeniable.  Check him out at one of the following gigs:
