Burning in the Dark
The Bobby Cadmus Band actually began not as a band but as a solo artist. Back in the late '90s Bobby was frustrated that his performing career had never really taken off as he expected, and felt he could have better success by doing a solo acoustic act. It was at this time, still without a band, that he released the LP "Love Never Dies" in 2001. This was an extension of his live act showcasing more of his songwriting skills than anything else, but in a band format where he played nearly all the instruments. Several months later with the help of bassist and friend Joe Russo, "The Bobby Cadmus Band" was born. This power trio of both acoustic and electric based music began playing bigger stages in Philadelphia and it's surrounding suburbs. After several years of playing a variety of venues, "The Bobby Cadmus Band" released the EP "Come Dance With Me" in 2005. This was an acoustic album showcasing them as skilled performers of progressive blues and hinted that there was more to the Bobby Cadmus Band then just a singer-songwriter act that the first album demonstrated. Now with the release of "Burning in the Dark", The Bobby Cadmus Band has gone several steps further showcasing the spectacular live act that this power trio has become known for into a studio LP. Still always the singer-songwriter, Bobby has finally brought the energy of the stage to disc. Whether it's the almost "off the rails" abandon with his lead guitar work in "Simon Says", the heartfelt lyrics of the songs "Burning in the Dark", and "Selena", or the musical interplay of a seasoned power trio jamming away in the songs "Sleepwalker", and "GTW", The Bobby Cadmus Band finally delivers that knockout punch that his listeners have been waiting for.
