Indie recording artist, singer-songwriter and producer Bob Slaughter serves up an eclectic musical palette, infusing world music – reggae, Celtic, and Afro-beat – with folk, rock, jazz and Texas Swing, with a healthy dose of contemporary psychedelic sensibility. In addition to The World Passes By, Slaughter has self-produced and released four other albums: We Are Water (2017), The River Knows (2014), Leap of Faith (2011), and Bob Here Now (2009). A longtime player in the Austin music scene, Slaughter has performed as an opener for such bands as Andrew Tosh & the Peter Tosh Band, Ini Kamoze, Yellow Man, along with other bands from Jamaica and Africa, and performed at such legendary venues as Austin’s Liberty Lunch. Slaughter is an accomplished live-looping solo artist, creating musical landscapes of serenity & lyrical poignancy. He also performs in a duo with the internationally acclaimed singer Julie Ragins, and with his Laughing Waters trio with Mark Sebly on bass & Mike Fowler on fiddle, and a collective of Hill Country Americana musicians known as Ghost Jam Players. Bob’s music & lyrics serves as a vehicle for spreading peace, love & joy.
