Bio

Born in Montreal, singer/songwriter Bobby Dove planted her country music roots singing and picking acoustic guitar and mandolin at The Wheel Club’s infamous Hillbilly Mondays, where she found a mentor in the resident lap steel player Bobby Hill: songwriter, educator, and pioneer of Canadian country radio in the 1950’s.

In 2013 Bobby released 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 Mary Gauthier, Richard Thompson and Justin Townes Earle. 

Thunderchild, Bobby’s debut album was released in 2016 and she has since been touring Canada, winning the hearts of diverse audiences with her powerful songwriting and performances.

The Dove is currently wrapping up her newest album to be released in 2020, recorded by Tim Vesely (Rheostatics) at the Woodshed in Toronto, On, with an all-star cast of musicians including Bazil Donovan (Blue Rodeo) and Jimmy Bowskill (The Sheepdogs).

Bobby plans to tour her upcoming singles and new record across Canada and beyond.

“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
