Boston street musician turned home studio producer serves up his original eclectic pop with electric mandolin and distinctive vocals.

My name is Bob Comtois (pronounced, cone-TWA). For years I played mandolin and sang on the streets of Boston and its sister city, Cambridge. Perhaps you were among the few million people who stopped and watched me and my bands play in Harvard Square or by Fanueil Hall. Among you were Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics, Peter Wolf, and the Impressions. Television, nightclubs, radio and colleges came to us, but it was always the exuberance of the street performances that was so exciting. My bands (i.e.Strings Attached, Hoot Spa, The Risa Benson Band, Public Domain and The Verbs) encountered some wonderful fans and visitors from around the world. They loved to dance to our upbeat sound- unique for its blending of folk-rock and R&B replete with sax, electric mandolin, great harmonies, and fun antics. Guest artists such as Bela Fleck and Patty Larkin graced the street and stage with us. We were pretty accessible in the 70’s and 80’s. Things are difficult to keep together, band-wise. So, over the years, my home studio became the place where musicians would come as I learned production techniques while I recorded many of my original songs as well as those of my clients. I am very proud of my work with my dear friend, fellow Boston street performer, and soul singer, Gerry Mack. I also have worked with Boy’s Life’s John Surrette, 70’s pop guru, Andy Pratt, and co-produced the recently released "Rainy Day Sun shine" by Whistle Jacket (also available at cdbaby). "With Relish" is a collection of my songs spanning the 80’s and 90’s. I produced it using Protools along with some original analog masters, and I re-mastered it digitally to a very pleasant effect. The music is eclectic, quirky, pop. The electric mandolin is very chameleon-like, weaving in and out of the multi-textured sounds I tried to convey. Along with electric and acoustic guitars, I play mandocello and electric mandola, besides my punchy, rhythmic acoustic mandolin style. My vocals are certainly distinctive. I hope you like what you hear, as I have albums and albums worth of material ready to be released.

The Frog Prince Returns

Bob Comtois

In cart Not available Out of stock

Ever surprising pop-rock with mandolin blended in behind unique vocals.

The Frog Prince Returns is Bob Comtois' sixth album of originals. It is surprising pop-rock music that sounds like Leonard Cohen making The White Album while listening to Pet Sounds. Bob plays all the instruments and sings all parts. He also engineered and produced the album.

Ever surprising pop-rock with mandolin blended in behind unique vocals.

The Frog Prince Returns is Bob Comtois' sixth album of originals. It is surprising pop-rock music that sounds like Leonard Cohen making The White Album while listening to Pet Sounds. Bob plays all the instruments and sings all parts. He also engineered and produced the album. Bob blends in his punchy mandolin here and there, as well as his vintage mandocello. The result is eclectic and very pleasing.
