Rob Bellamy’s brand new EP Hungry Heart is available now on all streaming platforms. Take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the new songs off the new EP.

Rob Bellamy

One of our favorite local artists, Rob Bellamy makes great music and has a killer voice. He creates music that is authentic to who he is which relates to country fans everywhere. The singer-songwriter just released his newest project, an EP entitled Starving Eyes a few months ago, and now is back again with seven more brand new songs on a project he is calling Hungry Heart.

Bellamy kicks the record off on a high-energy note with “I’d Rather Have a Beer in My Hand.” Leaning into the blue-collar, everyday story, the song is all about wanting to kick back with friends, rather than working. We can all relate to this song, as he sings “Man this week sure got the best of me / Punching the clock is the last place that I want to be.” A similarly fun track, “Dance With Me” is a sexy, honky-tonk vibe, where Bellamy’s vocals shine and soar.

The project continues into a more romantic sound. “Only Drunk I Wanna Get,” one of our favorites off the EP is a hopeful, love song. Bellamy sings about wanting to get drunk on love with his sweetheart. The soothing and honest quality of the song, as well as, the well-crafted lyrics makes you want to root for this blossoming relationship. “No Space Between” is another romantic and well-thought-out song on the project.

“Until The Weekends Through” is also one of the best off the record. Bellamy leans into the singer-songwriter vibe on this one. Although topically the song is about drinking after a long work week, the singer makes the song feel fresh and innovative.

With a strong instrumental, heavy on guitars, “Wish We Could Have Stayed” is story-telling at its finest. You cannot help, but to fully engage with the lyrics Bellamy is passionately singing. The melody and the backing track amplifies the already captivating track.

“Looking back we had it made / I know time rolls on / But I wish we could have stayed.”

Finally the record ends with Bellamy’s acoustic rendition of “Firebird.” Vocally, the song is exquisite, as the singer takes us through the story of loving a car and loving the simple life. The song was the perfect way to end an already incredible project.

These seven songs could easily join the other group of songs off Starving Eyes to become a full-length project by the promising talent.
