Bobby Long Plans Dangerous Summer Tour


06/04/2009
.
(PR) Singer-songwriter Bobby Long, whose song "Let Me Sign" is included in the soundtrack the blockbuster film "Twilight," is set for what he's calling the Dangerous Summer Tour of the United States to begin in late July.

Long has independently released a 10-song recording of original material called Dirty Pond Songs that he recorded in his bedroom to make available at his shows and via the internet.

He refers to it as "a big EP" or his "bootleg album" rather than a proper CD ("You can even hear traffic sounds from outside my bedroom window on some of the tracks"), which he has plans to make at the end of the year.

The single from DIRTY POND SONGS, "Let Me Lie," is downloadable from iTunes, where it reached #1 on their "Unsigned" chart and #8 on the Folk chart. The soundtrack from "Twilight," which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and has remained on the chart for over six months, is also available from iTunes. Bobby Long's second single, a live version of "Being A Mockingbird" recorded at Arlene's Grocery in New York on April 14, is now available via digital outlets.
