Born Robert Dwayne Womack in 1944 in Cleveland, Ohio, Bobby and his four brothers were inspired to form a vocal group, The Womack Brothers, by their gospel-singing father Friendly Womack. Who could believe the musical legacy that would follow.
A man whose talent as a singer, guitarist and composer is matched only by his self-lacerating honesty; Womack dismisses the three albums he made at the turn of the millennium and sees his first album for XL Recordings as the first real Bobby Womack album since 1994’s Resurrection. The Bravest Man In The Universe is Bobby Womack’s first album of original material in eighteen years, and a fitting continuation of the Womack legacy.
