Welcome to Small World Records

Welcome to music done local.

After 20 years on the road with Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers, a lifetime career crafting projects in the studio for musicians near and far, and countless gigs of many descriptions, I'm home.

And like a rocking house party is better than sitting around on the couch, home means a place for my own projects as well as those of the stellar friends and neighbors that have come through my musical life and my studio.

Small World Records is a gathering point for a web of interrelated records. Quality and depth, authenticity and innovation are what you will find. Content is king here. Records are available as CDs as well as download.

We've included all the tracks from each cd in our music players for you to listen to and enjoy free of charge!
And we do of course encourage and ask you to push our link buttons and buy the music if you like it. Of course it's a labor that we love, but please help support independent and local music! Local music is like local food — a fresh, unique flavor and good for the spirit.

Browse, listen, and contact me if so inspired.

Thanks for visiting,
Bobby Read
