Bobby Caldwell: ‘Most of my listeners thought I was black man’
14th February 2015
Interview. Bobby Caldwell talks about his career and present his brand new jazz album After Dark.
You grew up in a musical environment. What musical memories do you have of your childhood?
My parents were both in show business. I grew up surrounded by music, and theater people. Sinatra was the favorite artist in my family’s home, and I developed a deep appreciation for the way Frank was able to emote a song. I also loved the Beatles. After mowing lawns to raise money, I bought my first guitar. I used to sit in my room and listen to the Beatles. Eventually, I could play every one of their songs on that old guitar. It was a great time in my life, as a kid in Miami, Florida.
