Bobby Pennock is an accomplished singer/songwriter whose style, albeit unique, is reminiscent of those celebrated folksingers of the 1960s and 70s, like Paul Simon and Harry Chapin (with a heaping helping of The Beatles thrown in), crafting songs that catch you off guard with lines like: "Don’t try to reason – a little thought might give you heed/You don’t need to be wise when pleasing all your wants/By disguising them as needs..." Listening to him perform is like watching a good magician. When it's over, you can't help but ask: How did he do that?
Bobby's album, 10,000 Stories, is packed with such lyrical tricks - a blend of humor, caged emotion, suburban zen - delivered innocently enough inside smooth vocals and fetching guitar work.
When not performing solo, Bobby can be seen on stages around and about with a band of songwriters known as Taller Than They Appear. You can visit this great band at www.tallerthantheyappear.com. He is also available for session work and has added bass, guitar, and vocals to recording projects by several SE Michigan artists.
