"The spirit of John Prine and Bob Dylan are whisked away to another dimension, and it returns as the songs of Bob Davoli. Over the last decade, I've listened to Mr. Davoli's music mature into a fine edged knife of clear, soul touching expression. His commitment to becoming a current musical force has been a delight to watch. Bob is, by any standard, the real thing. Showcased by exceptional recording and production, his first collection soars. Nice to know that someone is committed to getting it right."
Livingston Taylor, acclaimed singer/songwriter
SINGER/SONGWRITER BASED IN MA
Bob released his first album in January 2021, titled Wistfully Yours. Bob grew up inspired by the folk singers in the 1960s and early 70s. It would be nearly three decades before he wrote his first song, just a few months before his 59th birthday.
In the last six years, Bob has won a songwriting award 41 times, including awards for finalist and semi-finalist, in multiple national and international songwriting contests.
Of these contests, Bob won the John Lennon weekly songwriting contest in December 2021 with his original tune, “Transistor Radio and Me”.
Critical acclaim for Bob Davoli's music:
“Songs like the deeply personal ‘Transistor Radio and Me,’ which was selected as a finalist in the 21st Annual Great American Song Contest, showcases Davoli’s talent as a writer… Davoli’s descriptive lyrics and vulnerable storytelling leave an impression with listeners.” Annie Reuter for Forbes Magazine
“['Don't You Let the Darkness Drag You Down'] flows with the gentle breeze of wisdom. It’s all grace, with no snarls.” Melissa Clarke for Americana Highways
“There is no doubt that a lot of thought went into each word of this song [‘Transistor Radio and Me’], and all the others on Wistfully Yours.” Madeleine O'Connell for American Songwriter Magazine
“Davoli has spent the last seven decades preparing for this album debut…an empathic and fully evolved artist…songs like ‘Transistor Radio and Me’ and ‘What I Remember Most’ run the emotional spectrum, from personal trauma to enduring love. Prepare to open your heart and feel. (8 out of 10)” Eric Harabadian for Music Connection Magazine
