For the twenty years right out of college, 1972-1992, much of Bob's creative energy was directed through the artistry of Farrell & Farrell, releasing eight albums and touring extensively throughout the world. He and his wife, Jayne, became CCM favorites, spinning off more than a dozen #1 songs, including "People in a Box", “Boundless Love”, "All You Need", "People All Over the World", and "Let the Whole World Know".

Since the early eighties Bob has also written songs for many other CCM artists, as well as artists in mainstream pop and country, including Eric Clapton, Lonestar, Wynonna, Amy Grant, Jaci Velasquez, Stacie Orrico, Michael W. Smith, Cliff Richard, Sandi Patty, Oleta Adams, She-Daisy, Bob Carlisle, Anne Murray, Anointed, Laura Branigan, Take 6, Melinda Doolittle, and many more.

#1 CCM songs include: "Because of Who You Are" (nominated GMA Song of the Year 1981), "Shine Down", "Heirlooms", "For All the World" (GMA Recorded Song of the Year 1991), "Unexpected Friends" (nominated GMA Song of the Year 1992), "Who Will Call Him Kings of Kings" (nominated GMA Song of the Year 1993), "Hand on My Shoulder" (NSAI Song Award 1993, also nominated GMA Song of the Year 1994), "A Heart Like Mine" (nominated GMA Song of the Year 1996), "Un Lugar Celestial", "Adore You", and Christmas songs “Heirlooms”, “Child of Peace”, and “Christmas Wish”.

Bob's collaboration with Grammy and Dove award-winning producer/songwriter Greg Nelson has spawned multiple songs in hymnals, and several significant concept works over the years. In 1993 Sandi Patty released their concept musical Le Voyage. In 1994 Warner-Alliance released Saviour, a modern classical oratorio, featuring Twila Paris, Steve Green, Larnelle Harris, and the London Symphony Orchestra. Fall 1996 Sparrow/EMI released their multi-artist oratorio, Emmanuel, which was nationally toured in arenas Christmas '96.

2003 saw the release of Bob’s collaboration with Eddie DeGarmo entitled !HERO, the Rock Opera, that included double-album and graphic novel; and a sold-out 2003 Tour, for which Bob was show director and appeared as Governor Pilate. In 2004 !HERO won Dove Awards for Event Album of the Year and Album Packaging, and in 2005 for DVD Of the Year.

In 2016, Bob released his book I Will Be: I'm Not There Yet, but... a look at how to get unstuck from situations in life.

Bob’s accolades include multiple Dove and Grammy nominations, garnering seven Dove awards. He has 2 daughters and 4 grandsons and lives in Nashville with Jayne, his wife of 45 years.

Astute credit readers will recognize Bob Farrell as a songwriter whose songs have been performed by DeGarmo & Key, Sandi Patty, Amy Grant, Pat Terry, Wynonna, and Eric Clapton. He also penned Hero The Rock Opera with longtime collaborator Eddie DeGarmo. But dig back a bit further and you'll recognize Bob as half of the husband and wife duo Farrell and Farrell, who were mainstays in the Christian music scene in the 80s and 90s with songs like "Earthmaker", "People in a Box", and "Boundless Love".
