About R.X."Bob" Bertoldi

R.X."Bob" Bertoldi in Vinci, Italy - August 2011

 "I listened to a lot of Bob Dylan and the Rolling Stones as a kid, and later, Tom Waits.  Their music led me to many other musicians, including Robert Johnson, Lightnin' Hopkins, Little Walter, and more.  After while, just listening no longer cut it.  I wanted to try to make some music.  So I got an acoustic guitar and started learning to play from the recordings of those same musicians.   I later figured out some basic harmonica and drums, bought a four-track cassette recorder and started "writing" my own songs.  It was a nice surprise to find that folks (besides family and friends) liked my music, even some industry pros."
