Mansfield, MA, USA
BOBBY KANE was born in Brooklyn, NY, and was immediately immersed in music. Some of his earliest memories were of being moved to tears just hearing his mother sing in the other room. By the age of three, he was already banging cacophonously at his favorite uncle's guitar. At times he could be heard picking out tunes - with one finger - on any piano he was allowed to play. And with every trip to church he was drawn more and more to the rich tonality of Gospel music. It was clear that music was in his blood. Though at school he started out in the horn section, Bobby now specializes in guitar and vocals - plus he'll dabble in drums or keys for some compositions. His own music is mostly secular, but the influence of Gospel can be found hidden deep within his songwriting. It mixes seamlessly with Jazz, Blues, Classic Rock, Alternative, and Soul stylings to create a cohesive body of work that some have referred to as "Alternative Soul."
