Very British Folk Pop Musician Gives Prince Some Competition with his Band’s Musical Arrangements
Previous punk musician releases album after turning to acoustic pop and folk with his prolific band who accompany songs on instruments including mariachi bass, violins, trumpets, keyboards, glockenspiel, domra, mandolin, dulcimer and slide guitar
The Bozchestra is the affectionate name for Boz’s band who accompany him on an array of instruments combining guitar, mariachi bass, violins, trumpets, keyboards, glockenspiel, the Russian domra, mandolin, dulcimer and slide guitar with percussion and drums.
The most frequent Bozchestra line-up are Phil Robinson on ‘guitarron’
Born in Hereford, Boz’s family moved around with his father’s RAF work. Boz went to Manchester Polyand based his musical operations from Manchester’s thriving Boardwalk basement rehearsal studios.
Not one to refuse a “crooner” set with a piano, Boz also composes instrumentals and film music, which lead to his Shortscores album in 2013.
Boz composes for himself with the Bozchestra, although his creative output is constant and he has song material to spare for other performers.
The acoustic pop and urban folk music Boz plays is quintessentially English, something charming that had been sadly lost amongst the diversification of today’s mainstream genres.
The brand newalbum ‘Light and Dark’ will be released on 29 September 2014 on Bert Weill Productions with distribution from AWAL.
