About the Artist... Bob Sirois began his musical journey when he started playing guitar at age 16. For the better part of his 25 years in music he has diligently sought instruction from several different teachers who have helped to shape him as a professional musician. Bob spent his early years as a Rock & Roll guitar player honing his skills with the Connecticut band "Under The Rose". During this time he had occasion to perform hundreds of shows both with his band UTR and as a session player for various other artists. But it was essentially the inspiration of Folk/Western legend John Denver that caused him to redirect his efforts toward becoming an acoustic style Folk Guitarist/Composer. Since 1996 when he began listening to John's music, Bob dedicated himself to becoming a highly trained Folk/New Age style Guitarist. As a result of his many efforts he helped to compose, arrange and produce 3 albums ("Under The Rose", "Drain", & "A Little Hope") with his band "Under The Rose". Their consistent efforts through the years helped position Bob and the band to sign a recording deal with Attack Records and a publishing deal with Cherry Lane Music in 2002. This opportunity helped pave the way for Bob to perform, arrange, orchestrate and produce three solo, instrumental Christmas albums titled "A Hometown Christmas"(2002), "Dreams of Christmas"(2005) and \'A Christmas Melody\' (2008). In 2006, Bob also produced a full length Christmas DVD titled \'Dreams of Christmas\' containing many of the tracks from his first two Christmas albums. In addition, Bob has also become a well-versed guitar instructor as well as a session player for the popular country artist Cheryl Cormier. Today, Bob spends a majority of his time doing what he has come to love the most, composing, arranging, orchestrating and teaching.
