Born in Montreal, Canada, singer/songwriter Bobby Dove planted her musical roots singing and picking at the Wheel Club’s weekly hillbilly nights, where she found a mentor in the resident lap steel player Bobby Hill: songwriter, educator, and pioneer of Canadian country radio in the 1950’s.
 
In 2013 Bobby released the seven song EP, Dovetales, heralded by CBC’s Brendan Kelly as “a stunner, repping the debut of an important new voice on our roots scene.” She has since shared stages with artists such as Justin Townes Earle, JD McPhereson, Richard Thompson, and Mary Gauthier.
 
Produced by James McKenty (Blue Rodeo, Gordon Lightfoot), Bobby’s debut full-length album Thunderchild was recorded with a strong cast of Canadian musicians including Anna Ruddick, Sam Weber, Bob Cohen, Laura Bates and Burke Carroll. Since the 2016 record launch, Bobby has been touring Canada, winning the hearts of roots music lovers with her poetic songwriting, powerful voice and magnetic stage presence.
 
“Bobby Dove is a gifted artist, and a brilliant new light on the songwriting scene. Her songs speak to my heart. Her work is a link in the chain that binds the future to the past. A time traveler, Bobby’s songs meld genres with the touch of a master. I am a fan.” Mary Gauthier
