Bobby Cash is a unique musician who has proved to the world that music knows no boundaries and that it is a language that brings together people from different lands and different cultures.
Also, he is literally a ‘ one in more than a billion’ country music singing sensation, being the first and only country music artist from India who bears the honor of being the first Indian ever to release albums of country music internationally. Two of the albums are a collection of great original material sung in classic style with a voice nobody would want to forget in a hurry. His music is a blend of traditional country with a contemporary bent, his voice is a rich light baritone with a warm and velvety feel and his brilliant guitar playing brings in the exciting elements of the likes of Chet Atkins and Jose Feliciano.
A large part of his live action is Bobby flying solo – just him and his guitar - he is one of those performers who can understand what his audience wants, and can cause them to smile or sit back with moist eyes….His entrance is a simple walk in, and perched on a stool, he transports one into the world of his song, with the stage alive and vibrant with energy….
Bobby Cash grew up in Dehradun, a place nestled in the foothills of the Himalayas in India. Being the son of a very wealthy man of his times, Bobby had an unusual childhood with a taste of the best of the East and the West, which included records from Nashville, of which his family were very fond of. Throw in a dash of history, for Bobby’s parental generation went through the turmoil and heartache of the Partition of India, and Bobby had all the ingredients of Country Music right there in his own backyard.
‘Country Music was the sort of music that fitted in with the way I was growing up, the beautiful place I grew up in and my close family. My earliest recollection goes back to hearing records playing that my aunt would send from Nashville,’ says Bobby, and his inspiration for his songs, as he puts it, ‘ have come from within and without’.
‘Also, country is the most natural style of music for me to play…’. Ask him why, and he says, ‘I think country music is very close to the Indian psyche, because it is about life and roots and family and home, and all of these things are very close to my heart.’
His international career began when he was invited to the Tamworth Music Festival in Australia and became the subject of a documentary in 2003. Starting with busking in the street, Bobby became the smash hit of the festival, drawing huge crowds to him. Before long, he was playing to packed houses in Tamworth and for Bobby, an amazing journey began. Soon he was all over media, appearing in numerous television and radio shows.
Since then, Bobby has been touring all over Australia and other parts of the world, and is a top-selling Independent artist….
