ATO and Bobby Long are excited to unveil “Devil Moon,” the latest song from his sophomore album Wishbone, out February 19th.

Recorded in Los Angeles with producer Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Lucero, Old Crow Medicine Show), the well crafted songs on Wishbone live up to the expectations put upon a young man the Wall Street Journal touted as a “promising talent” with “much more to say,” after the release of his Liam Watson produced debut album A Winter Tale. That album won Long praise for his “sturdy but graceful,” tunes in the Los Angeles Times, while Entertainment Weekly wrote that “his old-before-his-time romanticism and strong rasp are real draws.” Throughout Wishbone Long displays his deft control of melody and tone, well practiced over many years of prolific songwriting.

Long has come a good way from his early days playing open mic nights in London while finishing his University thesis on the social impact of American Folk Music. He now finds himself stepping into the pantheon of that grand musical history he so reveres, gigging at major festivals like Bonnaroo, impacting popular culture with performances on the CBS Early Show and Jay Leno, and presented with the humbling opportunity to record Wishbone with Elliott Smith’s guitar, graciously lent by studio neighbor Rob Schnapf. Yet with all these significant accomplishments, Long is far from content, and looks forward to bringing Wishbone and a blistering live show to the world in 2013.
