Dobby D Sounds Richard Dobby Road Town Before you ask, Yes, Dobby is my name and no i dont like Harry Potter! Anyway, back on track! My name is Richard Dobby, and I’m a songwriter. I've been in music all my life- usually playing trumpet through high school/college, and beyond. Musically, I favored pop/rock all my life, but Garth got me hooked on Country almost 20 yrs ago. After college, my career progressed well, but I knew I wanted to again be part of music- just not how. So now I'm up after the family goes to bed forging on- writing music, screenplays, books- anything to keep the "creative" side fueled while the "day job" (I call it that now) pays for life... About 8 years ago, I started songwriting in earnest. If you wake up at 2 am with a melody blaring so loud in your head that your hair hums, what do you do? You get up and get it down, or not sleep any more that night. When you’re driving I-65 to Birmingham and miss three exits because you’re leaving song-snippet voicemails to yourself, what do you do? Find the first rest area and tap it out. When chords and melody come to mind that send shivers down your spine, what do you do? You plug in the laptop and map it out. I am blessed, and afflicted, and ALIVE. My name is Richard Dobby, and I’m a songwriter.
