Bio

“I’ve always been drawn to songs that make you feel and make you think, and that take you to unexpected places,” says Bob Stillman. “I love lyrics, I love melody, and I love color, which is why I love people like Joni Mitchell and Randy Newman, not to mention Cole Porter and Kurt Weill and Nina Simone and Rufus Wainright and…well, you get the idea.”

Multi-talented and multi-faceted, and possibly the only acoustic singer-songwriter to have starred on Broadway opposite Vanessa Williams (that was in "Kiss of the Spider Woman"), Bob has lit up some of New York’s best-known stages as writer, musician and actor. He's been nominated twice for Tony Awards---first as actor, composer and onstage pianist in “Dirty Blonde,” and later as one of the songwriters for “Urban Cowboy.” Bob has also brought his uniquely soulful original songs to such popular New York venues as Joe’s Pub, The Cutting Room, Wilson’s and Elaine’s. His just-released debut CD “Come Down Angel,” co-produced with Tom Corwin (whose credits include work with Bonnie Raitt and Stevie Wonder) has been steadily attracting listeners, and was selected as one of host Zoe Montana’s “Essentials” on radioio.com’s Acoustic channel. Featuring solid grooves, soaring melodies and biting lyrics, Bob’s songs combine folk-rock, jazz, pop and classical influences to create a style that is deeply personal, intimate, sophisticated and emotionally rich.

Born in New York City, Bob studied piano and composition at the Juilliard and Manhattan Schools beginning at age 9. In addition to his Broadway work, he’s been featured in some of the coolest new musical theater pieces by such new-wave composers as Adam Guettel (“Saturn Returns” at the Public Theater, released on Nonesuch as “Myths and Hymns”) and Michael John LaChiusa (“Hello Again” at Lincoln Center).
