Alt-country singer songwriter Bobby Dove is winning the hearts of music lovers across genres and generations. Born in Montreal, Bobby planted her country roots picking acoustic guitar and mandolin at the legendary Wheel Club, where she found a mentor in the resident lap steel player Bobby Hill – songwriter, historian and pioneer of Canadian country radio in the 1950’s.
Bobby released Dovetales in 2013, a seven song EP heralded by CBC’s Brendan Kelly as “a stunner, repping the debut of an important new voice on our roots scene.” She has since shared stages with artists such as Justin Townes Earle, JD McPhereson, and Mary Gauthier.
Released in October 2016, Bobby Dove’s debut full-length album, Thunderchild, was produced in Peterborough, ON at the studio of James McKenty (Blue Rodeo, Gordon Lightfoot), with a strong cast of Canadian musicians including Anna Ruddick, Sam Weber, Bob Cohen, Laura Bates and Burke Carroll.
“Bobby Dove is a gifted artist, and a brilliant new light on the songwriting scene. Her songs speak to my heart. Her work is a link in the chain that binds the future to the past. A time traveler, Bobby’s songs meld genres with the touch of a master. I am a fan.” Mary Gauthier
“A strong debut from a talented newcomer.” Barry Hammond, Penguin Eggs Magazine
“She invokes a young female Hank Williams with an old soul and a much better future. Thunderchild, her debut CD, is a gem!” Richard Flohil
