He can be a lawyer, a doctor or a dentist but Bobby Bones’ dominant creative side is so strong to ever go unnoticed. Gracing StarCentral Magazine’s page as the Upcoming Male Artist of the Month for the month of February, Bobby is of a Jamaican background. This would somehow give you a glimpse of his poetic character that is so vividly present in his music.
The young boy who used to draw and write poems is now a promising music artist. He sources a great amount of inspiration from his parents and strengthens his passion and drive from the people who burn his road with negativity and discouragement. Bobby is a determined, self-motivated artist and any detractors who would attempt to shake his love for his craft are fated to face great disappointment.
When he was in primary school, Bobby surprised everyone when he won a talent show after giving a stunning performance. This has led to the continuous discovery of his talent that convinced his mom and dad to let him flourish in such a creative world. Currently, Bobby enjoys the lavish support and love that stems from his family. Having his loved ones behind him is definitely one of the blissful things in his career. It has given him the opportunity to explore the music industry with a more open heart and free from limitation.
Indeed, music is a liberating avenue of self-expression. Bobby sincerely shares how he loves the freedom of expression that he gets from making music. He loves the rush and the deep connection it establishes with the audience. No one can actually understand the joy of creating music except for artists like him who describes the experience as something even better than sexual intimacy, an emphasis he made as if his dedication is not enough to express his passion.
Yes, Bobby is all about passion and creativity. He was once part of the first Pop Idol in UK and proudly mentions that meeting interesting people like Motown Group’s The Drifters band member and Simon Cowell had impacted him in the most positive way. Bobby fondly recalls how his talent was acknowledged and recognised by these people during his past performances. He adds that he still travels back to those moments whenever he feels down because it always gives him the lift that he needs.
Currently, Bobby is busy perfecting his craft. He has an E.P coming this May and his supporters can expect great musicality from this talent. If there is anything that he would like to share to other upcoming artists, it’s the importance of knowing who you are and staying humble. “If you do this, the people who love you will be happy for your success.” He ends.
