Bobby Hart has been called one of the world’s most prolific, successful and influential songwriters. As an Academy Award, Golden Globe and Grammy Award-nominated composer he has sung, written and/or produced highly successful songs for himself as well as bands like the Monkees. Hart wrote his first two top ten songs in 1964 with his best-known writing partner, Tommy Boyce. The duo wrote Hurt So Bad, Come A Little Bit Closer and Not Your Steppin’ Stone as well as the Monkees first hit single, Last Train to Clarksville and album, The Monkees.
They also made numerous songs for television and motion pictures and spearheaded the Let Us Vote campaign, lobbying Congress to lower the voting age to eighteen. Bobby continues to write and administer his music publishing interests, while devoting more time and energy to his commitment to meditation, service to others, and public speaking.
