Bob Eike :: happy little songs about futility and despair

Posted: December 5, 2013

Soul Stew Records is proud to share the creative song-writing talent and amazing performance of Bob Eike on his release, happy little songs about futility and despair.

Bob grew up in Texas and is a self-taught guitar player. Throughout his youth, he had a passion for the Blues and Americana music. His musical talents gained him recognition by Guitar Player magazine, featuring him as “an undiscovered great.” He has performed in venues and at festivals throughout the country, including sharing the stage with such notable icons as B.B. King, Johnny Winter, John Hammond, Jr., Taj Mahal, Townes Van Zandt, John Lee Hooker, Lyle Lovett, Leo Kotke and Sonny Landreth.

While in California, Bob had the opportunity to work on recording projects with artists such as Billy Thompson and Dr. John. After moving to Chicago, he discontinued recording and performing live... until now. Soul Stew Records rediscovered this amazing talent and, after convincing him to work on his “studio tan,” Bob put together these amazing songs. We are pleased to present this new release, happy little songs about futility and despair, from Bob Eike… a truly undiscovered great.
