Though England is his place of birth, the songs Bobby Long writes are redolent with pieces of Americana. Perhaps that's because he now lives in New York City, a place he feels more at home than he did while living in his native country. In 2009, Long made the move to the States after emerging from London's open-mic night scene with a reputation for creating memorable songs inhabited by hauntingly poetic lyrics. A student of songcraft, Long's reverence for American music runs deep, with influences ranging from country greats like Hank Williams and Ernest Tubb to folk singers Woody Guthrie and Ramblin' Jack Elliott, and modern day luminaries like Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith.
