"Elton John on acid"

with a little bit of Mel Torme thrown in for good measure, so sayeth Greg Steele, head engineer of BowlbyTunes's latest studio efforts. - Greg Steele

"Honorable Mention"

I have won an honorable mention in the 2005 Billboard Song Contest with my tune "Rip It" which means I made it into their top 1500...they say keep writing and I will. They also sent me some free guitar strings, which I find pretty decent. In a funny, but nice kind of way. - Carl Bowlby/Billboard

"Guaranteed Fun"

If you love song--that captivating creature cultivated by Cole Porter, Lennon/McCartney and Partridge/Moulding--then you'll love Carl's ecstatic beat. He sings, he soars, he croons, unafraid of harmony, melody or irony. Like Alice eating exotic cakes, you can never be sure what Carl's music will do to you, but the ride is guaranteed fun. - Sir Matt(hew) Daube, Stanford University, PhD Candidate Drama

"Rip It"

My BowlbyTune, "Rip It" was chosen out of 300 tunes to be included on's 2006 compilation CD that will be sent to all sorts of people. I'm really thrilled, and can't wait for the CD to come out August 1st, 2006....just keeping you posted! Rip It, Burn It, Do It Again! - Carl Bowlby/

Feeling a bit camera shy


Influences: The Beatles, Beach Boys, Brian Wilson, John Lennon, Paul McCartney,
Morrissey, Pink Floyd, Oasis...

I am set apart from other bands/entertainers/performers, because I sound like an amalgam of all those influences.
