“Bobby Long is our kind of artist—smart, musical and hardworking, with accessible songs of depth and beauty,” says Compass Records co-founder Garry West. “And with his growing fan base and an album as good as Ode to Thinking, we’re confident that he is an artist on the rise. All of us at Compass Records are thrilled to be working with Bobby and look forward to what the future will bring.”The album’s 11 original tracks showcase a hard-won maturity that belies Long’s 29 years. A prolific songwriter who has been compared to his own heroes—Elliott Smith, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan—Long’s vision for Ode to Thinking was honed in a live setting, where each song found its place on the album after being perfected on stage.
