Bob & The Massive Mellow

Bob is a folk Singer-songwriter, Author, Earth protector, & Permaculturalist who makes music that is earthy, soulful & simple. He is a passionate advocate of the 'Live Simply' movement that is currently spreading around the Globe, & is a keen practitioner of Yoga, Meditation and living naturally. He is actively engaged in bringing about much-needed change to outdated systems in the World, & his songs have this message running strongly through them. His music & books carry a strong message for this time.

Having previously lived in a busy city for 10 years working the 9-5 lifestyle & fronting World Roots band THE RUFFNESS, Bob experienced serious illness in the form of M.E, and was forced to change how he was living. He moved out of the city to a rural farm, & took decisive actions to change his lifestyle. Grounded, beautifully simple folk songs were born as the fruit of this move - and the album SIMPLIFY was recorded in an analogue studio on a farm in Somerset, produced by Real World Studios producer Ben Findlay (Robert Plant/ Kasabian) & the Album soon caught the attention of the Big Chill Records, was released into the world in 2020. His new book, also titled ’Simplify’ but with the sub-title ‘How to Stay sane in a World going Mad’ - which Bob describes as a 'Spiritual Survival Guide for how to stay sane & THRIVE in these somewhat confusing times we are living in’ - was published by Watkins books in the spring of 2020.’

He is offering talks about Empowerment, healing & how to navigate these times of challenge right through 2020 & 2021…

‘In a World that increasingly assaults our ears with glitches, beeps & ringtones there is need for something that grounds all this electricity. Bob’s music does just that.’ Josh Rouse, Music Week.

‘Bob’s book ‘Simplify’ is a call to Self-Empowerment, self-love, and self-determination. Strong, authentic, direct, and kind, it put a bounce in my step and a smile on my face. Thank you, Bob Hillary, your voice leaps out from the pages of this heartfelt book.’
