Bobbo Byrnes from the album October available as a self-release (by Danny McCloskey)
For Bobbo Byrnes, recording October, his latest release, didn’t take a village. October required an ocean between Bobbo Byrnes and his comfort zone to find the song-delivering muse. Bobbo was touring Europe in fall 2022, a man with guitar and mandolin. He also had a batch of songs he packed for the trip and, while overseas, entered Hansa Studios in Berlin, Germany and at Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin, Ireland to capture the tracks. The result is October, a fiercely personal accounting of what Bobbo Byrnes sees as ‘some of the least radio-accessible songs’. A Folksinger for 2023, Bobbo Byrnes incorporates studio technology with the man/guitar model, achieving success with an album that benefits from what modern studios can offer without using gimmickry or mix-fixing for final results.
A sonic overture of seemingly disparate notes opens October, the sound quieting to a strum as Bobbo Byrnes begins the song cycle with “The Cold War”. He introduces “Crooked Jack” with a story told with in an echoed vocal backed by chiming guitar chords as October twists acoustic strums into a revolving rhythm for the story of “Time Enough” while quietly honoring “Heroes” when Bobbo covers David Bowie. Though the man standing at the microphone holds just a guitar, October is alive with sounds, presenting an album more in line with modern Indie music than the Folk of 1960’s coffee houses. Bobbo Byrnes shuffles “House of Cards” in the persona of Little John, wrapping warm guitar notes around the title track, closing out October as man and guitar presenting the tale of “Too Many Miles”.
