  • 2015 ZMR Award

    May 2016

    We are incredibly honoured to announce that Eight Winds was awarded Best Instrumental Album - Acoustic in the 2015 Zone Music Reporter Awards. The award was announced and handed out at the 12th Annual ZMR Awards Show and Performance at the Joy Theater in New Orleans, LA on May 7th.


The tone that Bob evokes out of his acoustic guitars is exquisite, marked by its crystalline clarity, chime, and full-bodied sound. But in addition to the actual sound of the guitars, Bob’s technique is often jaw dropping for its clarity, note articulation, and intricacy . . . Bob certainly has a distinctive ear for inventive melodies and unique chord changes that provided many wow moments . . .
