My name is Bobby Bookout. I’m a singer/songwriter based out of Austin, Texas. I grew up outside of a small town in South Texas called Carrizo Springs. After a stint in the U.S. Navy, I used my GI Bill to earn a degree in Commercial Music from South Plains College in Levelland, Texas (one of the best choices I ever made.) In 2007, I graduated from SPC and moved to Austin to begin work on my full length self-titled debut which was released in June of 2010. Eight long years went by… after a wedding, a couple babies, a few jobs, moving twice, and most recently, opening a new business with my wife, I was finally able to wrap up production on my second record, released in October of 2018 and simply titled: B.  

I still haven’t (and probably won’t ever) commit to a genre. I enjoy free form and getting to create what I want without limitation. As you're listening to either of these records, you’ll quickly notice that each song is a total departure from the last. You may not like everything you hear, but I'd love if you'd at least give everything a listen... (maybe in some headphones??) 

I’m still coming down from the release of B. but we’ve got several irons in the fire… In the next year, there will of course, be more live shows. But we also plan to release at least a couple music videos for songs from B. as well as a live video recording or two. I’m excited to dig back in and finish up some new material as well! Check back here for updates! Thank you for visiting this page at all and for supporting independent music!

"Bobby’s a powerhouse of a singer with an easy to listen to, JasonMraz-meets-Maroon5 voice. (His songs)… as complex lyrically as the wonderful music each track features. One of the top 10 Austin albums of 2010...
