Robby Hecht

I first heard Robby Hecht at a Folk Alliance conference showcase a couple years ago. I was blown away by the middle of his first song. After the other two songs in the showcase, I knew I wanted to host him for a house concert. It’s taken a while to schedule this show, but it was worth the wait.

The first thing you hear is Robby’s warm, smooth tenor voice that fellow songwriter Steve Poltz once compared to “a warm blanket that wraps itself around you.” Then you are pulled in by the lyrics of his songs – beautifully and carefully crafted – some telling a story, some capturing feelings – happiness or sorrow, fulfillment or wistfulness. All supported by solid and tasteful finger-style guitar playing.

Catie Curtis, Anais Mitchell, Julie Lee and others have gushed about the “natural beauty” of Hecht’s tone, the “honey in his voice” and his “authentic gifts” as a lyricist.

Robby has toured and written relentlessly over the last several years and is the winner of several songwriting awards including the Kerrville New Folk Competition, Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriting Contest and Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Contest.
