BJV and Dirty Cello

San Francisco based singer-songwriter Bobby Jo Valentine has received numerous recognitions for his work, including designation of Songwriter of the Year by the West Coast Songwriter’s Association, radio appearances on KGO, KSVY and KRSH, and television spots including ABC’s The Morning Blend, Sac and Company, and NBC’s Outlook Video.

Dubbed “The nicest guy ever to pick up an acoustic guitar” by LA Weekly, his unique brand of hopeful Folk/Pop has also recently been featured in a commercial for the 2013 Ford Fusion. Valentine’s sense of realism, charm, and infectious melodies and vocals have earned the praises of industry vets like Brian Lucey, mastering engineer for The Shins and The Black Keys, who said, “Bobby writes with a sweetness and honesty seldom heard in acoustic pop music.” Calvin Turnbull is at the producing helm, who has worked with Sheryl Crow and Five for Fighting.
