    Richard Dobson

    Anderson Fair presents Richard Dobson.

    Richard James Dobson II was born on March 19, 1942 in Tyler, Texas. Richard's introduction to music came early in life, "My dad had an enormous record collection of European music from the Renaissance on. Verdi, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven and dozens of lesser known composers". Mary Eileen, his mother, loved musicals. From an early age, Richard and his younger sister Margaret were regulars at local theatres and movie houses.

    Returning to Galveston, for a number of years Richard worked on drilling rigs and shrimp boats. He never lost faith in his music and in 1977 self-released his debut album. A second album was available by the time he returned to Nashville in 1981. While still a Galveston resident, Richard joined the local band, Dick & The Dirt. By 1981 Richard was working the Houston clubs with his own band, Earthmover.  By 1985 Richard was a full time Nashville resident once more and True West, cut at the Nashville studio of the same name, was a Dobson and Mike Dunbar production. As the eighties drew to a close, Richard began breaking into the lucrative European Country music tour circuit.

    In 1998 Richard finally published his book. Titled The Gulf Coast Boys, it included recollections from the seventies when he toured with Rex (Wrecks) Bell, Mickey White and the legendary Townes Van Zandt. Richard's latest collection, Doppelgaenger, a back-to-basics voice and guitar recording, was issued by Brambus in late 2002.

    These days Richard makes his home in Switzerland.
