Hi, I'm Bo. My background is as a singer-songwriter (Universal, 2009-14), then producer and ghost-producer (multiple entries on the UK dance/club charts, 2018-present), teacher (Logic Pro X, music theory) and music technologist / event organiser (London Interactive Music Meetup). Currently, I'm phasing out production work in favour of songwriting, and pouring all of my spare energy into simply creating and sharing raw songs. I'm limiting production and instrumentation to what I can practically perform with live, and beginning to pitch songs to artists. I'd like to engage on Drooble as a halfway-house between writing songs and sharing them - to get valuable feedback and encouragement from the community here (and, of course, to give an equal or greater amount in return!). Sending love to all of the like-minded musicians and artists also participating in this community - look forward to getting to know you!





What is music to you? What does it give you?

I used to obsess over music for its own sake. Now I see it more as an expression of nature, including human nature. Although I've learned to treat those things with much greater respect than music itself, music gives me a connection to those things - nature, and people - in a way that nothing else does, and makes me feel fully alive.

What is your music dream?

To write music that motivates people in some way.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Justice and fairness.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Going to keep that to myself! Too private, sorry.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Some of my favourite music humans: Stevie Wonder, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Tchaikovsky, Curtis Mayfield. But that was a pretty arbitrary sample.

What inspires you to make music?

How ridiculous life is.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Go, do it.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

During: adrenalised, transcendent, free. After: usually humiliated, lots of shame.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Isolated. More venues, more circles, more jams, more buskers, more sharing, less hoarding, more openness, more willingness to make mistakes.

What do you think of Drooble?

I'm glad it exists! Not yet familiar enough with it to say more.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

People's misconceptions about musicians, whether it falls into the 'idealising' camp (their 'talent' is somehow magical and/or god-given) or the 'devaluing' camp (they're lazy dreamers who don't have real jobs)

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Yes. I go, I pay, I dance, I nod in approval, I always give money to the busker, and I give meaningful compliments.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Willingness to make mistakes, bravery to share, and consistency in what they do. If you're consistent in what you do, you can put your stall out confidently, gain the opportunities that are there, and deliver on those opportunities.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.
