Bobby Hustle is an internationally touring American reggae singer and songwriter. Born in Seattle, WA, Bobby has crafted a sing-jay style all his own, still rooted in his love and passion for Jamaican music and culture. Since 2010, he has been featured on more than 50 riddim selections from producers all over the world. In 2011, his first EP Always On The Hustle was released in partnership with Dynasty Records. He followed the project up with the highly acclaimed Sweet Reggae Music mix in 2013. Then in 2015, Bobby independently released his debut album It’s The Hustle, which featured 5X Juno Award-winner Exco Levi and reggae legend Sizzla Kalonji.
“There are plenty of American reggae acts in 2015, but none of them as genuine as Bobby Hustle. Built on a broad knowledge of reggae and dancehall music, Bobby’s authenticity is most impressive because it is self-taught and born of a true passion for a genre that most Americans only know through Bob Marley’s ubiquitous Legend CD.” – Dan Dabber, Reggaeville.com
Bobby Hustle has toured the USA as direct support for artists like Protoje, Konshens, Gappy Ranks and Kabaka Pyramid. Since 2012, he has toured internationally in Japan, Russia, Canada, Germany, Poland, Italy and Costa Rica.
In January 2016, after completing the forth show of a six-show tour in Costa Rica, Bobby was arrested and charged with drug trafficking. He surrendered his passport, phone and money to the Costa Rican government and was released on his own recogniscence, but was forbidden to travel. In December 2017, after countless requests and demands for his day in court, Bobby was acquitted of all charges in trial and allowed to finally leave the country.
In the early Spring of 2018, Bobby Hustle will release a new EP project produced by Loud City Music. He is more than excited to get back on the road and share his music with his fans!
