He finally sold his shop in 2000, taking very early retirement. Bob was a late starter in the song writing game, but within a few years of retiring he had over 100 songs written and recorded; songs about life and everyday events, drawn from personal experience. Bob's unique blend of country, blues and rock 'n' roll effortlessly reflects the formative events of his life. No stranger to grief, Bob lost his first wife to cancer when, his younger brother in a car crash, and his daughter also in a car crash. For Bob, sad songs seem to come easy, but through it all he never lost his sense of humour. Bob's first three albums, 'Memories', 'Images' and 'Only You' sold well and his fourth 'Norfolk Heroes' is available in shops throughout Norfolk incluing Jarrolds in Norwich and Cromer as well as Roys of Wroxham.
Since featuring on BBC Raio Norfolk's Sunday afternoon slot 'Maggie's Brew', sales have soared. The fourth album, provisionaly entitled 'Summer Time' is well in production. Bob's website is www.thesongfactory.co.uk. Here you can listen to nearly all Bob's songs absolutely free. You can also download selected songs or purchase CDs. Read more on Last.fm.
