London, England, Nov. 2008.. Bob Nierstedt is Country through and through. Though he started writing relatively late in life, Bob has amassed a body of songs that would please any top writer.This talent is showcased on the album "Country On MY Mind" which, with it's stripped back instrumentation, allows the relevance of the lyrics and honest vocal performance to shine through. The 13 well crafted songs are poignnant,humorous,sad, and happy, even inspiring. In fact they cover most emotions experienced by the listener in any given period of time; and this is what country music is all about-real people in real situations. Christine Sykes provides effective harmony and duet vocals. Sample: "A Woman Just Knows","Even Love Can Use A Hand","Just Once More","Tito the Frito Bandito" and "One Sock Short of a Pair"
