Although he kept most details of his personal life -- including his real name -- a mystery, Harlan T. Bobo
's quirky Americana made him a local favorite in Memphis, TN. The songwriter first tackled heartbreak, loss, and other melancholic subjects on Too Much Love
, released in 2005 by the Memphis-based Goner Records. He followed that well-received debut with 2007's I'm Your Man
, a breakup album that took its cues from the likes of Nick Cave
, Leonard Cohen
, and Wilco
. A self-titled release appeared in 2010.
