Performer Spotlight


Name:Bocephus King
Description:In BOCEPHUS KING, the enigmatic Vancouver native who\'s melodiously skirted so effortlessly so effortlessly between blues, alt country, traditional songwriting and modern aesthetics, we find now the voice of a songwriter and musician on a new path, ever-creating his own distinct sound. The results are nothing less than glorious on his new album WILLIE DIXON GOD DAMN !. Starting where he left off with traces of the genre smashing joy and adventure in his previous critically acclaimed ALL CHILDREN BELIEVE IN HEAVEN, King has sabotaged the typecasting. There\'s less the gravel-raw hobo-rock alternating with jazz-noir torch songs present in his earlier music. There\'s urgency here, as if the album is a signpost at the end of the world. King’s own voice has never been more present and contemporary. He avoids the easy answers and therein lies some of the majesty of the tone of Bocephus Kings’ latest work. The new album continues to present King as a cultural omnivore who eats with his mouth wide open.
