Bob Stump is a musician whose musical roots trace back to his time with his grandpa, who was a vaudeville performer. It was then that he was first introduced to country music back in the 60s. The moment that triggered his music career was when he heard the historic album “Will the Circle be Unbroken” produced by John McEuen of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. He was motivated by the performance of traditional country artists who were featured in the album. Over the years, Bob has fine-tuned his own music to capture the attention of listeners with his roots, country and bluegrass music.
Bob Stump’s newest release is a single entitled “The Wolf.” This work of art represents more than just a metaphor for the global pandemic. Bob was inspired to write this piece when he came across an antique painting of a wolf staring back at a rural town on a cold winter’s night. With this stirring image in mind, Bob uses this song to address all that has happened during the pandemic. The scattered instrumentation syncing with the vocal harmony beautifully conveys the message of emotions of uncertainty.
Recently, the artist has been gaining a lot of exposure and moving up the musical ladder. His song, “The Rain Came Down,” won first place for the instrumental category in The New England Song Contest. Listeners also rave about the artist’s showmanship during his live performances. The performance is a musical experience that highlights the blues and Appalachian folk music, moving on to cover popular bluegrass, country, jazz standards and rock music.
“The Wolf” is the first in a series of collaborations that Bob is working on. This musical piece best fits the traditional style of music that adopts a story-telling approach. Listeners who enjoy bluegrass, Americana, and the acoustic genre, will surely listen to this song on repeat.
