This is northern California native, Bobby McDowell,set to light up country music brighter than the sun in those big western skies. Full of energy, rich vocals, and a classic soulfulness, McDowell’s music puts audiences at ease and gives them a show they can go home wanting more of.
Much of his musical passion was evident from an early age as he started out pounding rhythms on a set of drums. However, music wasn’t his only love. McDowell’s family moved a number of times across the Golden State, but racing motorcycles became a steady friend that never failed him. With his first race at age 7, many more years followed on into professional racing that propelled him to events all across the country. Eventually settling down in a small one horse town, McDowell took root with the country fashion staples consisting of an old Chevy truck, t-shirts, and Levi’s
Today, the artist still makes his home in those quiet hills and enjoys taking in the sun with his family, a small cluster of animals, and a Harley for joy rides when he gets the notion. Being back “home” led him to once again turn to a dream he had left long overdue-music! This time, being behind an instrument wasn’t enough, and McDowell decided to push for center stage.
After playing the circuit of smoke filled dives and long forgotten bars, McDowell knew it was time for a transformation and sought out production on a project in Nashville. This first album, “The Climb”, was the audience’s initial look into what more this artist had to offer than just typical cover tunes. However, after nearly 2 years, things were still slow going, and once again change was in the air. Like so many other unnoticed entertainers, this one was giving himself an ultimatum to either get it together or leave music for good.
Fortunately, fate stepped in, and a firm foundation began to take hold. Now, his future is not only bright, but grounded in strong values, hard work, and an unbridled passion to succeed. With nothing standing in his way, Bobby McDowell is once again recording, pressing to get his songs out to radio, and looking to be the hottest new male artist coming out of country music.
