Bobby Long - The Bounty Of Mary Jane
Brooding vampires and hunky werewolves aren't what you think of when Bobby Long walks into the room. Though he's inextricably linked to the teen behemoth that is Twilight, the 24 year-old from Manchester, England has little to do with that world anymore. Already an accomplished singer-songwriter, steeped in American folk and blues traditions, has his sights firmly set on the open road before him. Down that road is a (thankfully) never-ending string of tour dates and the release of his ATO Records debut A Winter Tale. Click through to watch Long perform live at the Street Date studio and listen in as he explains how North American influences like Delta Blues, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan helped shape his musical sensibilities.
