FLAT PEOPLE is already receiving acclaim for its latest self-titled album, released in November 2007, recorded by Salim Nourallah at Pleasantry Lane Studios. The band was formed by Bob Guittard in Dallas, Texas.
BOB GUITTARD is a 29-year-old singer/songwriter originally from Dallas. He utilizes rich vocal melodies, personal lyrics, and instrumental soundscapes to create catchy but emotional tunes that will depart into the occasional chaotic groove. It's a weird blend of RocknRoll edge with an introspective mood of honesty & vulnerability.
Bob Guittard made his first full-length band studio album called "The Spoon Sessions" in 2000 with his band Timado based in Austin, Texas. This album was recorded at MARK HALLMAN's Congress House Studio in Austin...and produced by CHET HIMES, who had previously been nominated for a couple of Grammys and Academy Awards for Best Producer & Best Album. (He lost to Pink Floyd's "The Wall" album.) Bob also did some recording with various acts while in Los Angeles in 2001-2002. Austin however was really his original launching pad into live music, playing such legendary spots on 6th Street & around town like Steamboat, Lucy's, Hole In The Wall, Saxon Pub,...etc. (some of which don't exist anymore... tear...sniff...sniff).
SALIM NOURALLAH produced Bob's latest album "Flat People" at his Pleasantry Lane Studios in Dallas, Texas. Salim received the "Best Producer" award this year in the Dallas Observer's "Best of Dallas 2006 Music Awards." Salim also received "Best Song" and "Best Album" for his solo album "Beautiful Noise." He then deservedly won "Best Producer" again in 2007.
Bob has been playing in and leading bands since he was 13. He plays every instrument on nearly all of his home recordings at The Bob Studio, and has written hundreds of songs drawing from his experiences living & playing in bands in Los Angeles, Austin, and now Dallas.
He plays with a full cast of characters live with a looser feel. [BOB GUITTARD (Vocals, Guitars), WARREN BARRY (Keys), GRAHAM CATHEY (drums), RICH WILLIAMS (Bass)] ...and other featured cast of characters on varying instruments.
