20. February 2018 - Bob Spring from the UK to Australia
Here's some great news my dear friends: Ian Davies, International Music Journalist and Director of Core Global Media wrote a very cool portrait of Bob Spring and his musical career to date.
"Living the true rock n roll lifestyle as a singer/songwriter, Bob Spring has spent many dedicated years trying to cut his teeth in the industry and perfect his craft. One thing that stands out with this truly inspirational performer is the love of the songs he has written as he almost cradles them from the footlights, almost nurturing them, as if they were meant as a personal performance just for you." MORE...
Further, Ken Kunin of On Song International (Australia) also featured Bob Spring with a wonderful introduction on their official website:
"It is not very often that we go out of the way to hound someone to get them up on our site. Bob Spring is an exception to the rule here. You listen to his songs, you listen to his voice and you become acutely aware of a few facts. First is that he put the time into his craft and what you see and hear whether it be solo acoustic or with his band is the real deal. He has lived the life of a musician and a songwriter, he has developed his craft and perhaps most importantly, artistically he knows who he is and where he shines…aka his identity is not nebulous but specific." MORE...
10. February 2018 - TONIGHT LIVE in St. Gallen
Thank you all for being there at the Matte Brennerei on Thursday evening! I really enjoyed it! <3

25. November 2016 - NEW FREE ALBUM OUT NOW!
Hey ya all! No, I'm not kiddin' and I did not turn insane... at least not namable more than usually ;-)
Bob Spring released a 12 track album which is completely free and downloadable here on this site. It's called "FLESH AND RUST"
Why? Well, long story short: A very very close friend of Bob and almost something like a father to him, passed away this October. Michal Kral got his lungh cancer diagnosis in 2013. Since he was feeling worse and worse and the cancer started to show off his evil crucial face and no chemo therapy leaded towards any namable success, Bob took care of Michal 24/7 as a friend and withstanding brother.
Why is the album free? Bob thinks that Michal would have liked it this way... He once said; Money's nothing but a tool... You can't buy anything of greater value with it, at least nothing that really matters like time, love, friends or in his particular case, health. All 12 songs were written during this last 3 years, some were inspired by the sadness and hopelessness that came up every now and then laying down on everything like a heavy black veil. On the other hand, some songs are especially written for Michal and his family. Michal supported Bob in many different ways and sometimes even preserved him from doing very very stupid things.
Bob says he never met such a generous, honest and face to face person like him. Rest in peace Michal.

For all of you who can read n understand german, here's a great review of the show at the dynamo of last week! Thanks to Sacha Saxer at Negative White.
"Mit einer Stimme, die mehr Dreck aufweist, als ihn ein Chris Rohr in seinem Leben je wegschippen könnte und gleichzeitig eine emotionale Bandbreite offenbart, die eigentlich jedem Musikproduzenten die Tränen in die Augen treiben müsste, singt Bob Spring seine Songs, die von Verlust, Sehnsucht und Verlangen handeln, als gäbe es kein Morgen. Bob Spring ist Blues Rock in seiner dreckigsten, rohesten, ehrlichsten Variante."
Tonight, Bob Spring & and The Junkers gonna play at the Clearing Barrel (GI-Coffeehouse) in Keiserslautern Germany. The Military Counseling network e.V. is providing free, confidential, and accurate information on US military regulations and practices to servicemembers, veterans, potential recruits, and their families. It is part a consortium of more than twenty non-governmental, non-profit organizations located in more than fifteen states in the US and in Germany. Some of our counselors are veterans, some are lawyers and some have decades of military counseling experience. MCN is in constant contact with each other to stay up-to-date on the latest military regulations and practices. They provide resources and counseling options. Many of them are not lawyers and therefore cannot give legal advice, but, in cases in which an attorney might be useful, they may be able to help you find one. So we hope to see you there tonight, here the deatails:
