Bob DeYoung

I have had the opportunity to co-write and perform with some amazing songwriters and artists. It does appear many opportunities lie ahead – and I am hopeful that you can share the journey.

I host the Second and Fourth Friday Songwriter Sessions at Talus on Lookout Mountain, featuring songwriters from Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama. Please contact me if you are interested in booking a gig. I also serve as a Board member on the Chattanooga Songwriter's Association.

I would like to offer my thanks to those folks who have helped along the way. First and foremost is my wife, Joye, who has always been supportive of this effort (emotionally and financially); my daughter, Emily, for her ongoing support; Bob Payne, Mark and Janice Gray, Dave Gibson and Daisy Dern for making me believe in myself -- and the growing list of folks who always showed up to watch me perform.

I am also truly honored to call many esteemed local songwriters my friend. Many new songs have been completed through co-writing efforts with Mitch Collins, Megan Saunders, Jim Green, Emily Robinson, Jesse Black, Courtney Holder, Kevin Scarborough, Brian Harrison, Mike Bellotti, Herb Bushnell, Fritsl Butler, Marilyn Harris and Norm West.
