No genteel Macon, Georgia piano teacher ever slapped the hands of a young Bob Palindrome — but they would have loved to since he demonstrates such little respect for “proper piano technique.” Instead, he received his self-taught musical training in the garages and honky-tonks of that southern city, known for its wealth of music. While he has long since left Macon and the South, it is hard not to suspect that some of Macon rubbed off and followed him across the country. His music has been described as “Ray Charles meets Jerry Lee Lewis in a head-on collision with no survivors.” His greatest asset is his songwriting in which the influence of American roots music is ever present. Bob includes among his primary influences Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Rich, Mickey Gilley, “Little Richard” Penniman, and Floyd Cramer.
