The up and coming artist B.o.B. stopped by AMP Studios on Wednesday to discuss working on his debut album B.o.B Presents The Adventures of Bobby Ray and more. Read on to find out more about this rising talent.
It’s really refreshing when a new artist stops by the station and after he leaves everyone is like “wow that dude is
talented.” B.o.B aka Bobby Ray aka just Bob is a 21 year old musician hailing from the streets of ATL.
You know him from his song on AMP Radio “Nothin On You” featuring Bruno Mars. B.o.B is a talented musician who writes his own material, plays the piano, guitar and uses his cool soulful voice to create a collection of music that is sure to appeal to everyone.
After I spoke with B.o.B we took a listen to some tracks off his debut album “B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray.” The first song we listened to featured Rivers Cuomo of Weezer. The song was so good we had to listen to it twice. One of my personal favorites, that we only got to hear about 30 seconds of, featured Hayley Williams of Paramore and the song sounded massive. After hearing other tracks that featured artists like T.I. and Lupe Fiasco, B.o.B busted out his acoustic guitar and performed. A true artist that by hearing his music and just talking to him you can tell he’s destined for great things.
