SIMPLIFY is the new Album by Bob Hillary and the Massive Mellow. 12 Soulful folk reggae songs for a Calmer World. Simplify is an Album written in response to an age that seems to be pushing us to go ever faster & faster - to be working & living at a pace that many of us are reacting against. It is a response to all that our mad 21st Century is. It was recorded in a World music studio in Brixton & a rural Studio in Glastonbury. It was produced by Real World Studio's Producer Ben Findlay. Expect folky world Grooves with a message for an over-busy world. 'In a world that increasingly assaults our ears with glitches, beeps & ringtones there is need for something that grounds all this electricity. Bob's music does just that.' Music Week. Check out Bob’s website www.bobhillary.com for further details about his music, dates and videos/downloads. Buy: https://bobhillarymellow.bandcamp.com/album/simplify-3
