“It remains a rarity that an album does not contain any weak songs, but ‘Motel Americana’ from the Californian singer-songwriter and multi- instrumentalist Bobbo Byrnes is just one like that. The lead singer of ‘The Fallen Stars’ covers 3 songs from other artists in his own peculiar way on this solo record and he makes them sound as if they were his own. The remaining nine self-composed tracks are of the highest quality. This is a strongly recommended album for fans of great alt.country and Americana music.“ rootstime.be

"Singer/Songwriter-Americana, der keines Plan Bs bedarf." 
- Country Jukebox
"I enjoy Bobbo's music very much, it's much better now than when he lived with me."  
- Bobbo's Mother

"The music is authentic, rootsy and beautifully constructed; it's familiar and fresh all at once."  
- Huntington Beach Independent

"(The music has a) sense of an America where lights are burning dimly in the midst of cold emptiness." 
- OC Weekly

"One of the hardest working musicians in Southern California." 
- the OC Register

"Follows the musical storytelling tradition of Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle and Gram Parsons."  
- BrooWaha.com

"Bobbo writes deeply affecting material and it is delivered with an authenticity that is exhilarating. Even on disc his blend of roots, rock, country, folk and pop is delivered with the wallop of The Clash."  
- Orange County Register

"Bobbo Byrnes is one of the hardest working musicians in the Americana community, and his first solo album is further proof of his abilities.  Motel Americana is a definite 'Get It' if you love great music."
~ LA Music Critic

“Bobbo Byrnes has long proven himself as a key voice on the international Americana scene. On his new solo album “Motel Americana”, the singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist continues to successfully explore roots rock and alt-country, focusing on the slightly quieter and more nuanced regions of Americana.”
~Robert Kinsler, Music News Nashville

"Singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Bobbo Byrnes of The Fallen Stars and Riddle & The stars delivers plain spoken, heart felt tales of love, life and day to day existence in his new CD release Motel Americana with remarkable clarity. He’s the man you meet at the small town lunch counter that freely shares his colorful stories of this and that. Only difference is, Bobbo puts his earthy stories to music for all the world to hear much like Steve Earle and Willie Nelson have over the years."- Metronome Magazine July 2017
As frontman for Americana band The Fallen Stars, Bobbo Byrnes has been a singer/songwriter, producer, sideman, roadie, t-shirt maker and chauffeur. They have played over 300 shows in the past two years and been all over the world. Their awards include "Best Country/Americana Band" in the Orange County Music Awards, "Best Live Band 2015" by the OC Weekly and he was also a finalist for "Best Male Performer of the Year" in the SoCal Live Music Competition.
Armed with an acoustic guitar, Bobbo's songs paint a dusty picture of Americana that is both classic and contemporary, touching on scenes from cross-country road trips, small-town diners and folks living around the edges.
Ausgerüstet mit einer Akustikgitarre vermittelt der Kalifornier Bobbo Byrnes mit seinen Songs verrauchte Americana-Stimmung, die klassisch und zeitgemäß zugleich ist.
In seinen Liedern erzählt er von Road-Trips quer durch die USA, von schmuddeligen Gaststätten und von Leuten, die er im Laufe seiner Musiker-Karriere getroffen hat. Im Byrnes alltäglichem Musikerleben ist er jedoch kein Solo-Musiker, sondern Teil des Americana-Duos „The Fallen Stars“, dessen zweites Mitglied Ehefrau Tracey Byrnes ist. Bei der Band fungiert er nicht nur als Frontmann, sondern auch als Songschreiber, Produzent, Gastmusiker, Roadie, T- Shirt Designer und Chauffeur.
In den letzten zwei Jahren haben die beiden über 300 Shows auf der ganzen Welt gespielt. Unter ihren Auszeichnungen sind Preise wie der Orange County Music Award in der Kategorie „Best Country/Americana Band" und der "Best Live Band 2015-Award” der Wochenzeitung OC Weekly.
Als Solo-Interpret kam Byrnes ins Finale der „Best Male Performer of the Year“ in der SoCal Live Music Competition und zeigt damit, dass er auch alleine eine wahre „Rampensau“ ist.
