State your reason for choosing music as a career.

 

We want to create songs that resonate with people all over the world.  We want to get our tracks stuck in people’s heads, so they’re singing our songs without realising they are hooked.  That’s the dream!

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Tell us how you write the lyrics to your song.

 

Careful choice of words to build a picture of hope in a few lines of text.  Bit like ‘I spy with my little eye…’.  We work together, as a team, all bringing different hooks to the table.

 

.

Share your press release and reviews with us.

 

Bo Jolly are a music collective of songwriters and producers based in London, but working with artists internationally.  Their identity remains unknown, despite speculation…. And we intend to keep it that way!

Discuss your life outside the music world.

 

We have a load of different music projects going on at the moment, so we don’t have a lot of life outside of the music world, but that’s the way we like it!

 

 

 

I guess you could say we like reading about people living through natural and man made situations around the world…puts our own life in perspective.  Love walking and being outdoors in city or country, whatever the weather.  Like thinking about subjects without easy answers, talking apolitically, and hearing other people’s perspectives.

 

 

 

But, like we said… music is life, and life is music!

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Discuss your music career.

 

We’ve all known each other since school, we were in a ska group at school and we have experimented with a lot of different genres – electric folk, folk rock, dance, rock, club… the list is endless.  We had a few chart hits under other group names, and have been signed to Warner Music under one of those entities, but we have started a fresh this time around and are being hugely supported by an independent record label and are loving working in a more discreet way, as behind the scenes producers, making amazing music without the whole show of people coming up to you in the street and always knowing who you are.  We weren’t keen on that life at all.

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Elaborate on your artist’s name.

 

The figment of a fevered imagination washed up on a shipwrecked shore…echoing ‘all is well with the world’, bit like saying ‘Happy New Year’. Feel it now: (run it together) ‘Bo Jolly’…there, that wasn’t so hard was it?

 

.

List your five favourite music videos with reasons.

 

 

 

Cassius ft. Cat Power & Pharrell Williams, “Go Up”

 

Take two images that seemingly have nothing to do with each other, and place them next to each other to create a new one. Do that dozens of times in a row, and the result is this!

 

 

 

 

 

Jay-Z, “The Story of O.J.”

 

It only uses Simpson as a jumping off point, a symbol. By reminding the audience of the horrible racist caricatures presented in children’s cartoons, Jay-Z’s new single helps paint a fuller picture of the violent, despicable legacy of slavery in America.

 

 

 

 

 

Michael Jackson, “Thriller“

 

The hardest decision we have ever made?  Picking between ‘Bad’, and ‘Smooth Criminal’.  MJ classics and this music video needs no introduction.

 

 

 

 

 

Kanye West “Fade”

 

Who could forget the major Flashdance take on this?

 

 

 

 

 

Foo Fighters “Learn To Fly”

 

The wacky cast of characters and the amazing track was perfect in this one.

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Tell us your source of inspiration.

 

The world and relationships with people, places and things within it.

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Tell us your impression on dealing with paparazzi.

 

We used to have to deal with them a lot, and this was before social media, so the paps actually got paid far more as the photos were all exclusives and celebs didn’t have social platforms to project the image they wanted to the world.   We don’t have to deal with them now, and that’s why we are staying anonymous.  Banksy doesn’t it, why can’t we?!

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Elaborate on the recording of this song.

 

For ‘Better Things To Come’ we worked with Sarah (Sarah McNeill) who we are working on a few projects with at the moment.  She’s a great vocalist, and really easy to work with.  We fly out to her hometown of Toronto, Canada, and work with her on tracks we have pre-produced.  We get the vocals down and then come back to London to play with the tracks before finalising the sound.  For this single, Better Things To Come, we also have a saxophonist featuring on the track (Malcolm ‘Molly’ Duncan) – we’ve known him for years; he founded the Average White Band and had recorded and performed with some amazing artists (he has recorded with Ray Charles, Tom Petty, Dire Straits, Bryan Ferry and many others and has played live with artists including Marvin Gaye, Chaka Khan and Eric Clapton).  We love the unusual blend of soul, jazz, pop in this track – it gives it a really unique sound.

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Tell us your future projects.

 

We have our next single coming out on 30th June – the music video is out just before then on 10th June, and we are working with a few different artists on the song writing and production side.  We have some singles coming out this year with a drum and bass, house take on pop, so a lot of different stuff going out.  Something for everyone.  Watch this space; you will be hearing a lot more from us!

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

List the names of those that have supported you so far.

 

Just like us, they prefer to remain behind the scenes.  And we don’t like to name drop.

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Tell us your point of view on vocal tuning.

 

We are great believers in the universality of A= 440 i.e. concert pitch…it allows us to sing/play with anyone else. Music is a collaborative venture after all.

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Tell us your thought on quality and quantity for the release of songs.

 

Quality breeds quantity these days.  It’s a good idea to release as many tracks as you are ready to, as long as they are ready to a decent level.  You give people options in life; we all like different things so the more you have out there the better.

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Tell us your viewpoint on comparing music career to non-music career.

 

One can only truly compare ‘like with like’. There is nothing else like a music career, except another music career.  We are satisfied with one career, one love, one hobby, one life.

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

Tell us your opinion on categorizing music into genres and sub-genres.

 

From a catalogue/ location perspective it’s fine, but it’s not always helpful for artists as we can get type cast, or rather, ‘genre cast’ from just one unrepresentative track.

 

 

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

State the genre you despise most with reason.

 

Despise is a strong word, and we don’t like to associate it with any kind of music.  There are people out there that love the type of music we aren’t following, and we don’t ‘get’ but that’s what makes it interesting.  What we will say is, we haven’t collaborate with any death metal artists….yet!

 

 

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

List your five favourite movies with reasons.

 

 

 

The Godfather – an obvious choice, but a must!

 

 

 

Bullitt – McQueen’s humility, Bisset’s honesty, counterweights to the violence amidst SanFran’s streetscape.

 

 

 

Fargo – life on life terms when burying the money.

 

 

 

The French Connection – spy-like realism, use of Super 8mm for car chase…based on reality.

 

 

 

The Shawshank Redemption – a great plot and a true story.

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

State the title of the song and the meaning.

 

Better Things To Come…looking into the future with optimism.

 

.

 

.

 

.

 

 

 

State the title of the album and the reason for choosing the title.

 

We are thinking of an EP first, and we’re toying with the title ANONYMOUS.  I think you know why. 🙂

Davisson Brothers Band

The members of the Davisson Brothers Band and the music they make are a direct reflection of where they come from and the brand for which they stand. Hailing from the hills and hollers of rural West Virginia, the Davisson Brothers Band lives and breathes an authentic wild and wonderful, country lifestyle with music being the foundation. They take great pride in their heritage, roots and rugged backwoods culture. The four piece has an amazing, high energy show that mesmerizes crowds and makes people proud of who they are and where they come from.

 

 

 

The band consists of brothers, Donnie Davisson and Chris Davisson, along with long-time friends, Aaron Regester and Russell Reppert. The band has toured coast to coast with thousands of live shows under their belt in every situation and at every type of event imaginable. They are a very well-rounded band who can hold their own on any stage, anywhere with anyone – including the international stars at CMC Rocks QLD recently, where they WOWED Australian crowds.

 

 

In fact, local star Lee Kernaghan has become one of the band’s biggest fans. “I LOVE that Po’ Boyz song!” he proclaimed at the CMC Music Awards earlier this year.

 

 

The album’s first single ‘Po’ Boyz’ peaked at #2 on the National Country Airplay chart and the music video went all the way to #1 on the CMC Top 30 Countdown.

 

 

Fighter is produced by Grammy Award winning producer, Keith Stegall (Zac Brown Band, Alan Jackson).

Christine and The Queens – Girlfriend (feat. Dâm-Funk)

 

 

“Peak Janet and pure lust… feels like a fluid generation’s mantra-in-waiting” – The Guardian

 

 

 

“The French pop sensation returns with an ultra-smooth, funk driven tune” – V Magazine

 

 

 

“Her take on funk is fluid in every sense, but it also finds her sounding utterly dominant” – NME

 

 

 

“An extremely fucking good mission statement” – Noisey

 

 

 

“Christine and the Queens, is, thank god, back” – i-D

 

 

 

Christine and the Queens debuts the stunning video for her acclaimed comeback single “Girlfriend”.

 

 

 

 

With the original concept being developed by Christine herself, director Jordan Bahat describes how she came to him with Charles Ebbets’ photos from the 1930’s of builders relaxing on girders 60 stories up in the air and said, “These are the sorts of scenes I want to create for this video”. Along with those pictures, there were colour references from Tarsem and choreography references from West Side Story and Michael Jackson’s “Bad”.

 

 

 

The film draws inspiration from these hyper stylised American musicals but pulls them upside-down and inside-out for a song that is revisiting radical concepts of masculinity and gender.

 

 

 

 

“The message is both simple and radical,” says Christine and the Queens. “Simple because the video relies on energy and an effective use of choreography: more physical, sensual and assertive. Radical in terms of its aesthetics: here, the gang concept blurs the lines between ballerina and thug, as was often the case in American musicals such as West Side Story.”

 

 

 

The video also delivers us a more detailed unveiling of the Chris character; bigger, prouder, funnier, and damned horny whilst also illustrating the narrative of the original song beautifully.

 

 

 

Christine explains; “The song is like a story you tell to your friends” she continues. “Chris is the gang leader, the kind of person you look for and listen to; he does what he wants, perched up high somewhere, dangling above the emptiness…”

 

 

 

Girlfriend debuted as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on BBC Radio 1 last Thursday and was released to instant critical acclaim from The Guardian to Vice, and i-D to V Magazine; landing on radio, Spotify and Apple Music playlists worldwide, clocking up more than a million streams over the weekend. The song is available in English and French language versions; the latter titled “Damn, Dis Moi”.

 

 

 

“Girlfriend” is Christine and the Queens’ first new song since her already iconic debut record Chaleur Humaine, released to near-universal acclaim in France in 2014 and the UK in 2016, and selling more than 1.3 million copies to date. If Chaleur Humaine was an introduction to Christine and the Queens AKA Héloïse Letissier, then ‘Girlfriend’ is a bold declaration of the next chapter in her story. She’s stepping away from her debut album towards a tougher, more minimalist, and more upbeat sound, which finds its most direct expression on ‘Girlfriend’. The track – written and produced by Letissier- pays tribute to her long-time love of the G-funk sound, and in order to get it exactly right, she tracked down one of its pioneers, Dâm-Funk, and asked him to sing and play on it.

 

 

 

Christine and the Queens will perform at Radio 1’s Biggest Weekend in Swansea, UK, this Sunday 27 May. She has announced a full tour of Europe, Canada and the United States for the Autumn.
