Bobby Talked About Working With Alison And Gary

Bobby released his album named, Original, in 2017. He said he worked on the album for a couple of years. 

He added that there were no producers for records and albums in his early days. He also needed a producer for his album. 

He had known Alison Brown for a very long time, and she was the founder of the independent record label Compass Records, and her husband Garry West was also a musician and founder of the company. 

Bobby knew she was a great producer, so he asked her to do the project with her when he was doing another project. 

She said that she would think about it. She got interested in working with him and called him. 

Bobby said he has worked on multiple projects but didn't enjoy those as much as he enjoyed working on his album with Alison and Garry.

He shared that he didn’t know what he would record at the beginning. 

So, Alison told her to start with some of his favorite songs. She also devised some new pieces for him and gave him a demo tape. 

He said that she did the best job for him. They even made a music video for the album, which Bobby had never done. 

He added working with them, and the entire music team was one of the most incredible thrills of his life. He said they worked together well and dropped a great album.
