Bobby Jo Valentine is a multi-faceted and sought-after speaker, songwriter and storyteller who grew up on the windy seaside of Northern California. He’s been called a hopeful, realist poet and a philosopher for the people. His songs are both earthbound and mystical, and speak to the gentle, everyday awakenings of an openhearted life. Bobby has given a Ted Talk, has been awarded Song of the Year three times from West Coast Songwriter’s Association, is an out gay advocate for equal rights for all, and has performed thousands of events around the globe. His compelling, poetic storytelling and songs have built a growing following of listeners and supporters, and his most recent collections, Fox Eyes, Whale Heart and Maybe Stars, are available everywhere music is offered online.
