FROM THE PRESS

“Performance artist The Dark Bob stylishly crossed over into the role of pop singer.”
– Gregg Wager, Los Angeles Times

“There is a combination of sensitivity and romance in DB’s performance of this material that is utterly gripping. Many in the audience around me clearly felt moved.”
– Linda Frye Burnham, High Performance Magazine

“The Dark Bob makes intense music that draws from myriad schools – country, rock, Middle Eastern, surf, avant-garde, industrial, and more – and comes up with a fascinating hybrid…you should listen.”
– Natalie Nichols, L.A.WEEKLY
