WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA
ORDINARY LIFE marks the first solo recordings by West Palm Beach artist, Bobby Gugliuzza. His freshman release features sixteen tracks including his title track, Ordinary Life.
Gugliuzza sings lead vocals and he along with help from his local musician friends has laid all the tracks on the project which was recorded at his own Visual Volume Studios.
"It is basically acoustic pop rock, clean sounding and vocal," states Gugliuzza." The words of the songs on the album refer to spirituality, love, family and are about, as the title says . . . ORDINARY LIFE."
“Bobby is a seasoned talent and a great artist with all the tools. He and his production team have an amazing ear and have brought out the best in him,” says Rachael Streifel, World Shaker Management.

Bobby later joined Chris Alvy’s Hi-Fi-Sister, playing clubs, festivals and live television shows.

Their song "Mercy and Grace" won KCCM's "Song of the Year" in 2008, and in 2010, they won “Best Alternative Rock Band of the Year" with their song, "Breakaway." Their version of Rich Mullins song, "Awesome God" ended up on full rotation and in the Top 100 on ReachFM Christian radio.
During his career, he has played with several bands including HI-FI SISTER (Pop Rock Band) and CITY OF DAVID (Contemporary Christian Band) opening for many national bands and artists including Night Ranger, Jimmy Needham, Flyleaf, Newsboys, Rodger Waters, America, Foghat, Boston, Bad Company and more.
He appeared on local WPEC, Channel 12's "Good Morning South Florida" on his birthday with Ben and Kara and has also appeared on Univision Live.
The Lockport native always wanted to be a rock and roll star. He didn’t get what he wanted . . . exactly . . . but with a songwriting gig for the independent film Rotten Mangos he has made his mark in the entertainment field.
In West Palm Beach where he now lives, Gugliuzza was introduced to Michael Eldon Lobsinger (M.E.L.) with Darktooth Films by Executive Producer, Rachael Streifel, and best friend of Gugliuzza, who had encouraged him to pursue film score composition and songwriting with Lobsinger. Gugliuzza and Lobsinger did a music video together first, then a documentary. As she expected, they molded together as a duo who were predestined to create amazing projects together.
They have made a name for themselves with the awarding winning indie film, ROTTEN MANGOS written and produced by M.E.L. and all music was written and produced by Gugliuzza.
Rotten Mangos got a great reception at the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival in late September, as Lobsinger and Gugliuzza both won awards. Gugliuzza winning Best Original Music Score and Lobsinger with his lead actor, John Zambito won Best On-Screen Duo.
Gugliuzza, still in Florida, is performing in the Journey tribute band Odyssey Road, which he says is the only Journey tribute band that has been allowed to record all of Journey’s hits. He’s the bass guitarist for the band and contributes vocals.
You can usually find him in his West Palm Beach studio most days . . . and nights . . . working on his music, co-producing projects with Lobsinger, playing in one of the local cafés or restaurants or touring with Odyssey Road Tribute to Journey Band. He is also working on his first musical called "The Tenth Symphony Rock & Roll Musical Adventure." STAY TUNED FOR NEW PROJECTS IN THE WORKS!
