Robert Flying Man Abbott


creative, original and interesting. i go about songwriting in every aspect of thought and emotion.


I'm half Cheyenne/arapaho. My influences include my kids and family, beatles, louis jordan and life in general. i've played anything from blue grass to classical, from blues to rock. I've backed such artists as members of the 60's group The Newbeats and rockabilly hall of famer Andy Starr. I'm former lead singer of the pop punk band Nasty Abbott.


my first cd was with Nasty Abbott called Straight for Fun.
