Critic darling of the Nature Folk Movement (NFM)

As the king of the "nature folk" genre:

Intro to Singer/Songwriter

His debut album: New Pangaea

The truth is, singer/songwriter Bobby Angel is just trying to get by. Rumor is he may go electric, and/or give up the guitar completely and study water full time. But his fans keep pulling him back in to the nature folk fold, around the campfire, and who is Bobby Angel not to oblige.

Bobby Angel writes and performs songs that strike at the heart of what it means to pursue a more harmonic state with that blue marble we all live on, Planet Earth. The truth about Bobby Angel: He never set out to be a songwriter, let alone a singer. Find out more about Bobby Angel at his website.

Bobby's recent musings

Smash Hit
Homage to the one-hit wonder

Try as they might …

Some artists never break into the mainstream.

Stay on after the song to hear the exclusive interview

Even less make a number one hit, or even crack the Top 10. Then there is the curious case of the one hit wonders. These are the bands that score with one iconic song but otherwise you never hear from again. Unfortunately, as Bobby Angel laments in his song Smash Hit, he’s likely to labor in obscurity. Or is that a blessing in disguise? Enjoying the process is the most important thing.

Tear Down
And why the dream lives on

What happens when your life’s work …

Is all but set to be torn down?

Stay on to hear the interview after the song

There’s no question about it: It’s a heart breaker, both to think about and even worse to see first hand. Probably the anticipation is the worst part. To see all the glamorous mega-houses moving in on all sides all the while knowing its a glimpse into the future of the fate that awaits your house. Then there is the stark reality: the place you worked so hard to maintain over the decades is nothing but a shoebox compared to the new houses moving in.

And so all is lost. Or maybe not. At the end of the day (and one’s life), it’s the memories that mean the most. Or in other words, don’t fret about materialistic things. There’s a saying that you can’t take it with you. The comfort is the memories you left behind in other people’s hearts.

Bobby Angel channels Merle Haggard in this song.

Folk Star Bobby Angel
Balladeer of the Nature Folk Movement (NFM)

More than just a singer/songwriter, Bobby Angel is the self-proclaimed leader of the Nature Folk movement (NFM). His mission? To restore nature and music back to their roots. And what not a better place to do it than around the campfire at night with a guitar. Bobby Angel writes and performs songs that strike at the heart of what it means to pursue a more harmonic state with that blue marble we all live on, Planet Earth. The truth about Bobby Angel: He never set out to be a songwriter, let alone a singer. It just happened. How? By day Bobby Angel is just another person in the crowd, struggling to make ends meet. But at night, around the campfire, the silhouette of the natural resource defender takes shape. Truth be told, Bobby Angel also sings a love song or two (or three). But mostly with Bobby Angel, his songs are about the trees and the earth and what we can do to make it a better place. Bobby Angel didn’t invent the folk song, but he did help rescue it from obscurity in the name of protecting the trees.

Folk star campfire
Balladeer Bobby Angel discusses Nature Folk

What is the Nature Folk Movement (NFM)?

Bobby Angel explains:

Campfire talk in its entirety

Why? Because the Bobby Angel canon strikes at the heart of what protecting nature and getting back to the basics is all about. Or if you don’t believe me, just listen to what Bobby Angel has to say. And yes, he more than likely will mix in a few of his nature folk ballads, too.

Summary: Bobby Angel may only know three chords, and when it comes to finger picking, usually he just settles for strumming chords. But isn’t that what a campfire shanty is all about. The sound of the campfire provides all the accompaniment you need. What’s next for Bobby Angel. Possibly a campfire tour. But first he has to finish up his second studio release: The Green Album.

Thanks for joining the campfire!
