)-- Bob Cheevers Releases “On Earth As It Is In Austin”
Album features cameos by famous musicians/artists, a different Austin musician playing on one song each on the 15 songs Bob chose for the record.
Unusual? Sure, but that’s nothing new for this over-acheever. These tracks stay right with the gut of each song, true to the original feel and groove, fitted to the songs as they were written.
15 tracks, all new material, all featuring Bob’s signature vocals.

Of ‘Tall Texas Tales’, folks said this:
"Bob Cheevers is one cool scarecrow gypsy poet who writes and sings the romantic beautiful truth. When he releases a record, I listen." ~Ray Wylie Hubbard

Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings have recorded his songs. When he died, Elvis had a song of Bob’s on his “to do” list. Having written over 3,000 songs with some of them on TV and in movies, Bob has toured Europe relentlessly the past 13 years doing 30-60 concerts per tour and has been a music biz professional since the late 60′s during his top-40-charting pop career in LA, being the voice on the TV theme “Love American Style” and having played gigs in just about every state in the US.
In addition to his 1999 “Gettysburg To Graceland” CD being Americana top 20, one of the results of that record was the opening spot on what was to be Johnny Cash’s final tour.

“'Smoke & Mirrors' continues my friend Bob Cheevers’ life’s work of looking at life with a keen eye & deep feel for the human experience. He’s never afraid to look under the skin, behind the eyes, and deep in the shadows of his own story, and others and then describing it with exacting detail of emotion. cool, spacey, unhurried production that underscores his soul & depth, too. Cheevers is always a dependable badass.”
