Bob Amos In-depth Biography
Bob Amos is a folk and bluegrass musician who is equally skilled as a singer and songwriter, as a guitarist. He can even hold his own with a tin whistle and has on some of his recordings. In 1999, he finished work on a debut album, Wherever I go. He had a little help from some other artists on this first offering, including banjo picker Ron Stewart, guitarist Glen Zankey, bassists Bob Dick and Marshall Wilborn, drummer David McLaughlin, and mandolin player Chris Thile.
On Amos' debut album, fans will find terrific numbers like "Say What You Mean," "I Know Where You Live," "Fields of Home," "Baby's Got the Blues," and "Be Thou My Vision." Amos mixes hints of country flavor, blues soul, and even a little rock & roll sprit into his melodies.
During the last decade or so of his career, Amos has toured through both the United States and Europe as a lead member of Front Range, a bluegrass and folk group that has released a number of albums under the Sugar Hill Records label. ~ Charlotte Dillon, Rovi
