(2014) is the first album he has on the shelves under the name Bo Saris,
he is definitely no rookie in the music world. Ten years ago he launched his career by winning TV talent show Idols
as “Boris”. A quest for his true musical identity followed. Now 33 years old, the singer has realized that his major artistic influences were vintage soul legends like Sam Cooke, Otis Redding and Marvin Gaye. A key moment was meeting Bill Withers, whose sincerity and musicality provide boundless inspiration. Bo Saris is still exploring all the boundaries of his musical universe and this is proven by his vocal track on the exceptional drum ‘n’ bass hit Breathing
recorded by London-based producer duo Chase & Status. On his own album Gold
, Bo Saris restricts himself mainly to raunchy soul with a funky R&B edge. Bo Saris is like a child of Curtis Mayfield and Mavis Staples – but one who had singing lessons from Jamiroquai.
