 LISTEN TO THE TITLE TRACK ‘DON’T YOU WORRY’ HERE

‘Don’t You Worry’ is the stunning debut EP from 23 year old newcomer Bo Keeney, based out of the UK.  The tunes meld alt soul and contemporary blues with smatterings of drum’n'bass while his honeyed vocals call to mind a young Stevie Wonder.  To further compliment his unique sound on the EP, there are two inspired remixes from regular Skream/Magnetic Man collaborator Sam Frank and the much lauded South London art collective Breton.

Bo, named after his parents favourite guitarist, is a multi instrumentalist and music obsessive who grew up in Southern California and got his first introduction to music when his father took him down to see his mother’s band play at age four.  His mother was a hair stylist by day, and a guitarist by night who hung out with the likes of Kiss, Van Halen and Guns ‘n’ Roses (her voice can be heard peforming backing vocal duties on ‘Don’t You Worry’).

When he turned eleven the family relocated from San Diego to Winchester in England. Soon after, Bo wrote his first song and then saved up his lunch money, bought a guitar and taught himself to play.  He became fascinated with instruments and went on to learn the bass, the guitar and piano by sneaking into the music room at school and practicing on his own for hours.

Aged sixteen Bo entered the British Academy of Songwriters and Composers under 18′s competition.  Rather than sending in the standard one song – he sent an album’s worth of self-recorded material and he won.  Bo went on to co-write with Grammy winning songwriter Jimmy Hogarth who would eventually offer him a publishing deal.

With his advance, Bo rented a shipping container in Winchester, turned it into a studio and recorded his EP in near isolation.  The resulting songs are written, arranged and produced by Bo.
