What the critics are saying:
Utterly at ease in front of an audience, he is able to turn each song into a journey and an unmistakable destination...versatile performer." Eric Meyers, Time Out NY
In the perpetual quest for new and vital artists, Bobby Belfry is one to savor, embrace and lend the hand of fame to...vocally, Belfry is smooth as satin, his voice caressing the scale...smooth jazz outlets will have a ball with this shrewd offering, spelling out the beginning of a relationship that deserves to last, given the wealth of beautifully written and produced cuts on Imperfect Rhymes." Chuck Taylor, Billboard Magazine
Bobby has been the recipient of the Back Stage Bistro Award for Outstanding Vocalist. Imperfect Rhymes and So What", a cut off the album, were 2nd and 3rd place finalists for the Just Plain Folks Independent Music Awards, in a field of 10,000 submissions. He has also received the MAC Award for outstanding Pop/R&B Vocalist and several Critics Choice Vocalist Awards.
Filmmaker, Victor Mignatti (R Kelly's Trapped in the Closet", The Real World) has included Bobby in his documentary This Time", which follows the careers of diverse artists in the music industry (including the legendary Sweet Inspirations & Cissy Houston) by weaving their music-filled stories, exploring the relationship between faith and persistence to longevity and the process of making music against all odds. The film is currently available on DVD and iTunes.
