About

Songwriter and Poet

Listener, Storyteller, Seeker, Student

Bobby Jo Valentine is an explorative, hopeful, spiritual, queer artist who strives to makes music and poetry that is good medicine for everyone. Bobby Jo has won multiple awards for his songwriting, given a Tedx Talk, and is a believer in the soft and steady power of tiny everyday acts of love to heal our world.

His new book "Your True Name" is a collection of 112 stories, poems, and lyrics around coming home to yourself, and his new album "The Thing About A Heart" explores human behavior and belonging in our confusing modern world. When he's not touring the country extensively, he lives in Portland, Oregon with his husband Tim and his puppy Tater Tot.
