Singer-Songwriter Bobby Long Sets First Shows of 2014

British singer-songwriter Bobby Long, who now makes his home in New York City, has scheduled his first live appearances of 2014, beginning with a hometown show at New York's Mercury Lounge on January 25.
 
Long, who first emerged by way of London's folk revival movement and a song he wrote that found its way onto the soundtrack of the first "Twilight" film, has built a strong international following for his poignant, finely-crafted songs. He has made two full-length albums along the way-the critically-acclaimed A WINTER TALE (2011), which paid homage to his acoustic roots, and last year's more rock-oriented WISHBONE, a harder edged showcase for his sorrow-filled vocals and stellar guitar-playing.
 
He is currently writing new material for what will be his third recording and will showcase some of the new songs during his upcoming shows. A consistently engaging performer, Long has toured extensively on his own and as the opener for such diverse artists as Steve Winwood, Iron and Wine, Brett Dennen and Rodrigo y Gabriela as well as appearing at the Bonnaroo, Bamboozle, Dave Matthews Band Caravan and Austin City Limits music festivals. Music Connection Magazine, in a review of his SRO show at The Troubadour in Los Angeles last summer, wrote: "While he is equally adept at singing and playing the guitar, perhaps his greatest asset is his authenticity. In a time when the airwaves are dominated by auto-tune and studio wizardry, Long's refreshingly organic sound hits listeners' ears like a breath of fresh air."
