"... uncommonly fine writing, songs which are able to simultaneously project intimate concerns of the heart on top of a compassionate world view.... "

Singer-songwriter Bob Stark was born sometime after The Big Bang in "Tax Town - the only graveyard with street lights", Ottawa, ON. According to his mother, Baby Boomer Bob was content spending his crib years out on the porch, enchanted by the sounds of the neighbourhood birdies.

New CD "Modern Day Romeo" is to be released in August 2012.

Pre-orders are available by contacting bobbybulgemusic@gmail.com


In his early school years, feigning recurring episodes of the bubonic plague, Bob would stay home from school and beat away on his brother Gary's snare drum to the vinyl sounds of early rock'n'roll music - the Everley Brothers, Buddy Holly, and The King. Shortly after puberty, Stark made "a Freudian grip" and grabbed hold of brother Doug's $10.00 Simpson Sear's Silvertone guitar...and then came the Beatles, the Byrds, the Lovin' Spoonful, and the Buffalo Springfield.

Bob's first on-stage performance was "some time in the sixties, man" at an ' open-stage ' at The Wasteland Coffee House, Ottawa, ON . His most recent performances have been: Rasputin's Café, Ottawa, ON, September 2005; the Vancouver East Cultural Centre, Vancouver, BC, 3 February, 2006 (CD Release Party for 'Life on a Postcard'.) In-between, Bob has played at various benefits, festivals and folk venues - from The Foc'sle Tavern, Chester, NS ( to officially launch The Lobster Party) to the stage of the National Arts Centre. "Heck, I've even played at the opening of a general store, standing behind a canoe."

Stark currently resides in Vancouver, BC, cheering on the Canucks while drinking lattes and listening to the falling rain.
