Canadian singer songwriter Bobby Bazini was born in Mont-Laurier, a small peaceful, sleepy woodsy town north of Montreal.

Bazini grew up in a tuneful environment there. Mountainous landscapes, with beautiful green pastures coupled with the fact that he was indeed in a music family; his dad, a guitarist singer and mom the vocalist of the family, country music was on the menu every night in the Bazini household.

Awestruck by songs at such a young age and far from the distractions of the big city, Bazini, with the help of dad, took up guitar playing and singing. His world was unexpectedly struck by the news of his parents’ sudden divorce, this was a painful time for the young man..

Then one day, he discovered at his grandmother’s house the music that would change his world and fill his heart, a full collection of Johnny Cash records. He quickly started writing his own songs.

This along with the rural setting became the canvas of his music. At age 16, his influences turned to Soul music as he discovered artists like; Otis Redding, Ray Charles, Marvin Gaye, Al Green and Ben E. King. Through all this, the artist that was still the most comforting remained Johnny Cash.
