Solo Discography



This was the initial album cover with a different project name and album title, as it was advertized through an e-mail message from in November 2006. Later, a press release was issued on, saying that the project would be called Vertical Expressions by II Guys From Petra, followed in early December by a new cover design.

The II Guys story

At the time of Petra's retirement at the end of 2005, the future was unclear for Bob and John. Both were pursuing other ventures outside of the music business when Bob received and invitation from Canada to lead worship for a youth retreat. Bob immediately thought of teaming with John, much to the delight of the sponsors. As Bob began arranging popular worship songs for the duo to perform, it became obvious that it wouldn't be much harder to make an album together. After several months of work it was time to christen the new venture. Should they call themselves Bob and John... or Schlitt and Hartman? They elected to call themselves what they suspected people would call them inevitably... "Oh... that's two guys from Petra!"
