In the 1960's, Bob moved to Los Angeles, California, and was discovered by a producer in Hollywood. After success in the 60's as a pop singer/songwriter, and performer, Bob became disillusioned with big labels, and chasing hits. He moved to Nashville as a journeyman songwriter, covering lot's of artistic ground with Austin, Texas as his home.
