Hope-folk. Soul-pop. Poetic rock. Bobby Jo Valentine’s music exists outside the lines of any genre, but the music’s thoughtful lyrics and catchy melodies reach listeners on all paths of life.

Bobby is a proud supporter of equal rights for all people. He believes that we’re all in this together; that “the arc of the universe is long, but bends toward justice”; and that real justice means justice for everyone. Bobby is a constant supporter of LGBT rights and performs at Pride festivals and benefits and for LGBT youth programs all over the US.

Born into a Baptist church of strict lines and sharp edges, and coming out of that culture to discover who he really is, Bobby is now a believer of a different sort: a believer in the wild, strange, beautiful nature of the world. Faith has come to mean something much deeper, wider, and less cut-and-dried than when he started. Now, Bobby finds that he often has more to learn from the people who don’t believe as he does than from those who do.
