In reality, Eric Robert Waldman is the musician behind the character of Bobby Beetcut, and has introduced a new music category of music he calls “Family Roots Music.” It is simply a combination of positive life messages presented musically in quality recordings with stellar musicianship. Waldman’s goal is to craft songs that ground or root children with positive life messages that encourages confidence, living healthy lifestyle and social responsibility. He was encouraged by his closest friends that were starting families to write songs for kids. This led to numerous songs being written with families in mind and the birth of the musical character Bobby Beetcut.
For over 20 years Waldman released numerous albums under a variety of musical projects including being founding member of an inspirational, spirit lifting, rock and roll band named Natural Breakdown. He grew up believing he could help in the healing of the world through music and still believes in the powerful influence music has in our lives. Waldman is currently signed to HitPlay Records and is distributed nationally by RED Distribution, a division of Sony Music.
In the studio, Bobby Beetcut is more than just Waldman, but also includes the exceptional talent of Phil Girlando, who is professionally known as Phil Garland. Since the 1970’s Girlando has proven himself a gifted multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and music producer. He was a pioneer in the use of electric violin on rock music recordings, bringing his skills to many major label recording sessions. For over 2 decades, Girlando wrote, performed on and produced many national TV commercials for a variety of major brands.
This synergistic collaboration of Waldman’s creative songwriting and Girlando’s masterful music production has created the most enjoyable and dynamic catalog of songs few musicians have in their repertoire.
