Jeff Bishop and Robert Reilly have been friends for nearly twenty years. They met while working in the mid Atlantic original-music club scene of the mid 1990’s — Robert fronting the band 78 West; Jeff as guitarist and founding member of Earth To Bob.
As their bands shared the same dive bar stages countless times, Jeff and Robert quickly developed a mutual respect for each other. Hours of sitting around before and after sound checks – waiting to plug in and play – provided ample time for a friendship to develop and the seeds of a future partnership to be sowed. Jeff worked as both rhythm and lead guitarist on several of Robert’s solo projects before the collaboration came into its own.
As a creative team, Robert is the singer/song-writer, and Jeff the producer, responsible for putting together the arrangements and playing guitar as well as many of the other instruments. The self titled CD is Bishop-Reilly’s first full length album.
