RELEASE DAY!!!! FULL CIRCLE OUT NOW

Hey folks,

Today is the day!  My best of album “Full Circle” is officially in stores and online right now!

As I’ve been saying a lot lately in various interviews, I approached the curation of this album as not so much a “best of” or “greatest hits” but more like an introduction to Bob Evans.  I wanted this collection to both celebrate and initiate.  This meant that whilst the more well known songs like “Don’t You Think It’s Time?” obviously have a place on the album, there are also deeper cuts from several albums included that most people would not have heard of.  My hope is that by approaching it this way the album gives a broader and more interesting account of the last five albums and fifteen years of my Bob Evans recorded output.  I also hope that this album may act as an introduction to my work for people who have never heard of me or don’t own any of my studio albums.  Most of all though, like any album I have put out, I hope that it finds a place in people’s days and hearts and stereos and brings a little happiness along with it.

It is also just 2 WEEKS before my tour kicks off, starting in Brisbane on October 19th and continuing on to Sydney, Adelaide, Perth and Melbourne.  Thank you to everyone who has already bought a ticket.  If you haven’t yet you can do so here.  

This tour is unlike any I have done before.  I will be presenting most of the songs from “Full Circle” in special 3 piece mode, accompanied by Clio Renner on piano and Esther Henderson on violin.  We had our first rehearsal last night and from the very first song we played together it sounded SO GOOD!  I really think this is going to be pretty special.  Also, I will be conducting a song raffle, whereby everyone will take a raffle ticket upon entry and if your number is called you may request any song of mine that you like and I will attempt to play it.  This has meant going through my back catalogue and trying to remember a lot of songs stretching way back to the late 90’s.  My first album, “Suburban Kid” was released in 2003 but contains songs that I wrote many years earlier.  The oldest song from that album is a tune called “Boy” which I reckon I wrote in about ’98 or ’99, so barely out of my teens.  Above is a clip I made in my garage rehearsing it up on the off chance someone requests it in the raffle!

Thank you to all of you for supporting me over the years, for buying my albums and coming to watch me play.  Thank you to everyone who has pre ordered “Full Circle” and bought tickets to the upcoming tour.  I appreciate it so much and I’m feeling really excited about these upcoming shows.

CHEERS!   XXXBOBXXX

FULL CIRCLE ALBUM AND TOUR ANNOUNCED!!!

Hey there folks!   It is with great pleasure and feverish excitement that I can announce to you, my staunchest supporters, that your old pal Bob Evans is releasing a best of compilation album called “Full Circle” and hitting the road in October and November to celebrate!   “Full Circle” contains 14 songs from across my 5 studio albums, a mix of popular singles and personal favourites plus 1 BRAND NEW SONG called “Drowning” that I recorded with my touring band in May.  It’s the quintessential Bob Evans collection and it is available for you to pre order from August 7th, before hitting shelves on October 5th.  When you pre order “Full Circle” via a digital retailer like iTunes, you will receive the new song, “Drowning”, immediately!

Of course I am hitting the road to celebrate with shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.  The “Full Circle Tour” will be different to anything I have ever done before.  Firstly, I will be presenting almost all the songs from the record in a special trio format, backed by piano and violin.  I will also be conducting a song raffle of sorts, where everyone who comes to the show will be given a raffle ticket and if your number is called you get to request any song I’ve ever released under the Bob Evans name and I will play it right there and then!  By my count that’s more than 80 songs that I will try and re-learn in preparation for the tour.  It’s quite possibly the stupidest and most ambitious concept for a tour I’ve ever attempted!

FRI 19 OCT | BLACK BEAR LODGE, BRISBANE QLD SAT 20 OCT | LEADBELLY, NEWTOWN NSW FRI 26 OCT | THE GOV, ADELAIDE SA SAT 27 OCT | THE ROSEMOUNT HOTEL, NORTH PERTH WA SAT 3 NOV | NORTHCOTE SOCIAL CLUB, NORTHCOTE VIC

Tickets will be available on this friday the 10th of August!!

I hope you’re able to join me on this very special run of shows celebrating the last 15 years of Bob Evans.    See you out there!   CHEERS!   XXXBOBXXX
