A bit about Bob Collum: “Go West young man! And so they did. Except for one guy, Bob Collum. He went East. Trading his home town of Tulsa, Oklahoma for the marshy plains of the Thames Estuary in Essex, bringing with him a country tinged power-pop with a healthy sense of irony. Bob’s songs deliver a wry glimpse at life, love, death and …. Home decorating. All this is ba...cked by the sensational Welfare Mothers. Although only one is a mother and none are on welfare at the moment, they remain the tightest band this side of the Thames Delta. Intrigued? Come to a gig.”
What the press have written about Bob Collum:
“If you want an album that contains excellent vocals, very good songs, great arrangements and playing and also covers many of the bases within the edgier side of country you will be hard pushed to find a finer album than this quite addictive recording.”American Roots Music
“What you get here is engaging small scale, intimate country-ish powerpop ..”The Independent
“Like Elvis Costello, Collum is able to frame scenes and tell stories with vivid and compelling effect. 9/10”Americana UK
“A brand of Americana viewed through an exile‘s perspective. 7/10”Uncut
Support comes from Manchester alt country reprobates Picnic Area (new album “No country for young men”), and one of the UK’s leading new country songwriters, Glossop-based Quiet Loner.
