Jean Rah Fya Records announces the signing of Bobby Tinsley, who will be releasing his highly anticipated album, “What About Bob?” Bobby explodes onto the scene with the video of his compelling lead single, which is also entitled, “What About Bob?” The video is scheduled to debut on BET J’s popular shows “Morning Cup” and “Soul Sessions.”
Bobby Tinsley has earned praises for his soulful and positive sound, on records like CCHR Top 40 Charter, “Addicted” and his underground internet favorites, “Missing You” and “Never Give Up On Love”.Â Tinsley is currently putting the finishing touches on his sophomore album, “What About Bob?,” which the singer primarily wrote and produced. In addition, the admired R&B singer introduced his soulful sound to the world of MySpace in May of 2006 and has since accumulated over one million (1,000,000) profile views.
Tinsley is an accomplished songwriter who has worked with R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop and Gospel artists including the multi-Grammy Award winner BeBe Winans, Chani, Urban D, 3:16 and the production duo The Insomniax, who has worked with famed artists such as Jordan Sparks, Jojo and Boyz II Men. His emerging success inspired him to form his own music production company (More Than Hype Productions), which spawned his underground release in 2004 entitled “Page 1.” This musical gem then caught the attention of Jean Rah Fya Records label executives Doug and Jackie Christie.
“Bobby Tinsley represents the traditional R&B sound, which are the harmonies, rich melodies and lyrics that express true emotions, and ‘What About Bob?’ displays honest song writing, beautifully arranged music and vocal wizardry!,” said Doug Christie.
Bobby grew up listening to R&B greats like Boyz II Men and Brian McKnight. On “What About Bob?,” his smooth mid-tempo first single, Tinsley expands on his sultry, classic R&B sound, reminiscent of a “feel good” Marvin Gaye or Isaac Hayes record. Tinsley explains, “Young people from all backgrounds are dealing with the same relationship struggles and temptations. It’s important that they have music that speaks to those things.”
