Biography
Bob Showdown is a singer/songwriter from Austin, Texas with a knack for humorous and irreverent lyricism. Bob can perform boot-stomping ballads in a barroom with only an acoustic guitar, or he can take the stage with only a microphone to deliver his own brand of 'Hilarious Hip-Hop'. Every one of Bob’s songs is a story seeking a connection to the listener’s brain.

Bob is not schizophrenic, he just genuinely loves all types of music and uses the genre best suited to whatever story he needs to tell at the moment. The bluegrass sound of his song, The Backyard, fits perfectly with Bob’s lyrics about sitting around the backyard and taking the time to enjoy life. However, when it came time to create an ode to his personal hero, Kenny Rogers, Bob saw a hip-hop party beat as the only possible way to go.

His influences include The Dead Milkmen, Tom Waits, Ween, The Drive-by Truckers, and Kool Keith. You can hear some of these diverse sounds creep into Bob’s music from time to time, but you can also hear many of the inevitable Texas influences. Bob will be the first to express his love for the country music of Lefty Frizzell, the blues of Johnny ‘Guitar’ Watson, and the gangsta rap of UGK.

More than anything, Bob loves meeting new people and playing music with them. That’s why you might see him up on stage with someone playing banjo, fiddle, or upright bass. If he can’t play music with you, he’d still love to play some for you. Come out to a show, say hello, and you’ve got yourself a new friend named Bob Showdown.
