  • And now friends, with that being my last show of the year, I leave you for a while. This has been a very tough year for me personally and it’s not only time for some deep soul searching, but also time to let go of this unhealthy relationship I have with social media (and my phone) and find the real world again.. .
.

I’m putting down this life-sucking device for the summer, heading to a place where I don’t know a soul or speak their language, and I’ll be back just in time for Halloween, hopefully...
.
.

To give me something creative to focus on so I don’t lose my god damn mind, I will however be (for lack of a better word) “journaling” about the inner workings of my weird brain on my blog (bobonomo.com). There are likely people out there who can relate and I will be exercising some healthy vulnerability in the name of human connectivity.

Thank you for always supporting me you sweet humans. Talk to you soon ✌🏻

  • Teaching and mentoring is not something I ever 1) thought people would want me to do or 2) ever thought I’d want to do. But it keeps finding me this year so I’m rolling with it. 
If you’re interested in learning more about the craft of songwriting, or just improving your art form, consider joining myself, @make_hit_waves @toferbrown and other amazing professional writers/producers this November in San Pancho, Mexico for an incredibly intimate week by the ocean. We’ll be sharing our knowledge and expertise in a non-formal, hands on songwriting setting where you will be with us 24/7.

For more information visit makehitwaves.com, maybe we’ll see you in Mexico! 🇲🇽

  • Since I got home from tour I’ve fallen into a little bit of a creative bromance with @seanvanvleet. He’s an exceptional writer and an even more exceptional dude. I took this shot of him right after we’d both gotten all emo over a song we’d written. It was 3pm and we were half a bottle of wine deep. Making good music with good people is what gets me out of bed every day. More to come from me and this guy I reckon 🤘🏻

  • Just a handful of the incredibly inspiring people I’ve had the honour of spending the week with. The @hawaiisongwritingfestival is one of the most special events I’ve been a part of and I’m leaving the big island right now with a heavy but very full heart. What a special place, filled with very special people.

  • Someone in this world believes I am worthy of going to Hawaii to teach people my songwriting ways. I am grateful for that person.

  • Making a solid attempt this year to live a more analog existence (excuse me while I twirl my mustache and judge you). I’ve really found that stepping away from digital forms of creativity pulls me back into the reason I’m doing it in the first place. I think about it more, instead of just firing off a bunch of words or shots that I can then delete or edit later. I’m not knocking digital, because it’s an incredible tool we’re all lucky to have, just embracing the slightly simpler medium and all it’s magic. Found these old cameras for next to nothing the other day and I’m very excited to load them up and try them out. Also, the irony that I’m talking about this online is not lost on me.
