Songwriter and co-founder of New Haven’s renowned CATWALK during the 1980s-90s, Bob Crelin now steps up to the mic with his own brand of blues-infused rock/Americana. Bob’s unique rhythmic style and poetic sense combine with strong melodies and wry social commentary in songs that evoke shades of classic artists like: the Animals, Steve Miller, David Bowie... sometimes Frank Zappa.
Songs that Bob Crelin has co-written with his former band, CATWALK have been on the reporting playlists of major market rock radio, and college radio stations- without being signed to a label. Through their journey as songwriters/ artists, Bob and the band were featured in several industry articles including Billboard magazine and the New York Times.
Aside from his "day job" as 30+ year designer for the musical instrument industry, Bob continues to write and record new material, releasing singles and doing club appearances throughout the years. He is often joined by the stellar vocals of his wife Suzanne. Bob has been selected as the opening act for noted artists, including Marshall Crenshaw, Jon Herrington of Steely Dan, and blues guitarist, Sue Foley. His latest single, "Times Three" is currently available throughout the music download universe.
