Bobby Shock is a bassist/multi-instrumentalist/producer from New Jersey and he released the album Street Angel some weeks ago. Shock sings on the album and ha also handle Rickenbacker Bass Guitar, Fretless Bass Guitar, Technic Piano, Digital and Analog Synthesizers, Electric Guitar, and Moog Taurus Bass Pedals. Impressing I must admit. Shock is joined by seven musical friends on the album.
Shock is a very good songwriter and the five composition on the album is progressive, lush, and enjoyable and bass drenched. The title track Street Angels is an epic bombastic song with good vocal, delicious bass and warm synth solo. Shock`s main focus is prog but he also adds elements of new wave, art pop and various other elements.
