ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bob Paltrow is a classically trained pianist, singer-songwriter, composer and producer whose eclectic style of music could best be described as modern pop rock gone askew. Paltrow has a knack for catchy hooks and lyrics; memorable melodies, dynamic arrangements and a wry sense of humor, interweaving a broad pastiche of musical styles and genres including: rock, blues, classical, folk, ragtime, gospel, hip-hop, celtic, middle-eastern, funk and jazz. Listen to Paltrow's music, and you will experience an unlikely confluence of musical undertones reminiscent of Broadway musicals; ragtime carnivals and roaming gypsies; jazz, classical and hard rock; children's nursery rhymes and terminators; monsters under the bed and the Dalai Lama. With the commonality being: fun.

Not one to shy aware from comparisons, Bob's music has at various times been compared to Neil Young; Foster the People; Red Hot Chili Peppers; Beach Boys; Led Zeppelin; U2 and Elton John, Stephen Schwartz (Broadway musical composer  of Godspell, Pippin and Wicked) among others.

Paltrow is widely known for his unique, self-described neoclassical style of acoustic piano performance and composition. During performances, Bob often embellishes his compositions with spontaneous improvisational flourishes and ambient jazzy detours, taking the listener on unexpected journeys through ragtime, jazz, ambient, boogie-woogie, blues and rock that are mesmerizing and satisfying.

Bob has produced several original music recordings as either solo artist or band leader, including:

ALWAYS HERE FOR YOU (2013) - Bob Paltrow and Burning Clover; modern rock
LUCKY (2010) - solo piano (instrumental; neoclassical
P.O.T. LIVE @NORTHSHORE TERRACE (2007) by The Patriots of Tomorrow; modern rock
NOTE TO SELF (2006) - solo pop-folk-rock
TO THE FUNK (2005) - solo pop-rock
CAROUSEL (2002) - solo piano instrumental; neoclassical

In January of 2012, Paltrow launched a recording project, his latest release "Always Here For You," an album of catchy, modern rock pop by Bob Paltrow and Burning Clover, a collective of talented musicians featuring talented multi-instrumentalist Jeffrei Willson on lead guitar, bass guitar, keyboards and drums; Brett Steelhammer and Blake Cisneros sharing drum duties; Kelly Grotke on vocals; Chuck Kitterman on percussion; Phil Heaven on electric viola; and 2 sparkling lead guitar cameos by Scott Greene (on the title track) and longtime musical collaborator and friend Cheri Nunamaker on "Heavenly Body."

As much a fan of music as he loves to perform, Paltrow's influences are clearly evident and permeate his material in myriad ways. Its music that is both of this time - and yet strangely familiar and resonant with shades of classic rock. The music on "Always Here For You" is fun, positive, rocking and danceable, and marks s a dramatic departure from his previous band project, The Patriots of Tomorrow (P.O.T). Featuring Cheri Nunamaker on electric guitar; Bill Sterling on bass; and Chuck Kitterman on drums, P.O.T.  performed a rock-pop hybrid of songs themed around political and social issues, albeit with Paltrow's trademark cheeky humor and provocative lyrics.

MUSICAL PEDIGREE

Prior to BURNING CLOVER and THE PATRIOTS OF TOMORROW, Paltrow honed his musical chops performing with a variety of musical ensembles in the Pacific Northwest, including:

AKARAKA, a popular folk-fusion band fronted by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Burke Mulvany, and featuring Jason Darling on percussion; Phil Heaven on viola; Sara Hall, Melissa McConnell and Jamesa Noelle on hand drums (mid-late 1990's)
LAND OF MU ~ avant-garde Afro-Cuban trance-dance-jazz percussion group that was a staple of the then-flourishing hippy-jam improvisational scene in Bellingham during the late '1990's / early 2000's
YOUR HIGHNESS ~ All-women rock band (plus 2 token male members - pun intended) playing mostly original tunes plus covers by PJ Harvey, Led Zeppelin, Heart and others. (early-mid 2000's)
HATHORAKISSA ~ Bellydance troupe that at the time was the 2nd largest group of Middle-Eastern dancers and live musicians in Washington (late 90's)
PAUL BRETING AND THE BAILOUT ~ modern-folk-rock trio (late 2000's)
VOICE OF THE VILLAGE ~ World-music folk group playing music from many traditions (early 1990's)
THE CRAIG OLSON BAND ~ Singer-songwriter, all-original 4-piece folk rock (late 1990's/early 2000's)

BOB TODAY - BOB TOMORROW

Bob currently resides in Bellingham Washington, where he has operated Bob Paltrow Design, producing award-winning graphic design, illustration and web design for a variety of clients locally, nationally and internationally. Among his many fabulous clients, Paltrow has created over 60 album covers and cd designs for award-winning New Age music label Soundings of the Planet, founded by one of the founding fathers of ambient New Age music flautist Dean Evenson and his amazon wife Dudley Evenson.

Having just completed his latest album "Always Here For You," Paltrow is looking forward to promoting his music, with an eye towards licensing it for commercial use. In the longer term, some of his aspirations include producing original musicals and collaborating on live musical theatre driven by compelling narratives and story-telling.

But mostly, after almost a year of focusing on producing his album, Bob is looking forward to writing new songs, playing and performing lots of live music with friends, and entertaining people with good music and good cheer.
