Go West, young man, the cry went up of ages past. And they did. Except for one guy, who went East. And that’s Bob Collum, who in trading the prairies for the less fetching plains of Britain’s surly southeast. has brought to these shores a tasty, tasteful taste of the music that both he and his native Tulsa, Oklahoma, call home.
In Tulsa, though, where everything is big as all outdoors – even indoors – nothing is done small, so on top of his power-pop influenced take on country music Bob has loaded, in a style akin to that of a pioneer with more cargo than wagon, about every last influence likely to be tried by a feller with a taste for audio adventure.
Reviews of Bob's ep "The New Old Thing" which was released in April 2011 to very positive reviews.
"I'll recommend Bob Collum's "The New Old Thing" . Collum is an Oklahoman relocated to London, and his loping between solid country-rock ("Crawford County") and string-band laments ("Not Quite You") must be showing Mayfair how to mosey."

"The comparison that comes to mind is a more country Marshall Crenshaw.. ..the same slightly leftfield approach, the same ear for a good tune and the same intelligent lyrics."

"The Old New Thing" showcases shiny singer/songwriter pop gems done up in their best western wear.
The Alternate Root
"This latest six-track EP is possibly his finest yet as he continues to redefine his songwriting with some quite stunning musical arrangements that run the gamut from traditional, mountain music through Americana to a slightly more modern country sheen."
Adrian Cooke, Maverick Magazine
