Discovery: Bobby Dove

Bobby Dove is a Canadian singer songwriter whose satirical new track Hopeless Romantic skewers love song clichés.

By Graeme Smith

Bobby has a way with words. “I’m a known assassin when it comes to killing years” she declares in the first verse of Hopeless Romantic, and it only gets better from there. She delivers her clever, amusing lines with country vocals touched with hope and cynicism in equal measure.

She’s producing the kind of music I love to hear from modern country. There’s a classic feel but there’s not a touch of nostalgia. This is country for 2021, beautifully delivered. She released her debut album in 2016 and I’m so glad to be discovering her now. Hope you are too. Check out Hopeless Romantic below.
