Bob Sterry is a voice artist, writer, singer, occasional actor and humorist. Originally trained in the UK as a research analytical chemist, he immigrated into the United States in 1973, working as a wine waiter in New Jersey, a fork lift truck driver in Connecticut, and spent his professional career in the marketing of scientific instruments and services in New Jersey, Hong Kong and around the world.
It was not until he started writing short articles and poetry in the nineties that his creative talents found an outlet, and he began to sing seriously in choirs and extemporaneous groups. In 1999 he and his wife Anne-Louise Sterry, a well-known speaker, singer and storyteller, founded a short lived but much loved faux cowboy wannabe band, ‘Anne-Louise and the Cascade Urban Cowboys’. Discovering his on-stage talent, he took the step to starting his own show of songs and spoken word. His singing is Cabaret satire with Broadway and the English Musical Hall grinning in the wings with a nod to the classical style. Recent shows were ‘The Bob Sterry Atomic Summer Show’ and ‘The Book of Bob’ and ‘A Sterry Sterry Night’ with Anne-Louise Sterry. He is passionate about cycling, cooking, language and literature.
When not singing, Bob is launching his new radio show on XRay FM, writing and reading more poetry, and working as partner in Sterry and Sterry, a woman-owned business providing speaking, staff development, voice acting and entertainment services.
