Bob Hinkle, is a native of Asheville who got his big break in show business as a member of the folk pop band The Good Earth, with whom he toured and recorded, sharing stages with major acts. He also made a positively revised solo album,Ollie Moggus, before migrating to the business side of the music world. Hinkle spent over 40 years in New York, where he wore many hats in the music and entertainment industry: touring and recording performer, composer, record company executive, consultant, artist management, executive producer and more. In 2008 Bob returned to the mountains of North Carolina to wear a new hat, that of music venue owner. He writes both poetry and songs, which he delivers with a voice of experience accompanied by guitar backup refined by years of playing. He sings about issues both lighthearted and serious, but there’s often an undercurrent of wry humor in even the weightiest songs.
