From day one of my life in this music scene, my goal has always been to spotlight new artists and so when I found out about Bo Brumble and heard his music, I knew he was the one! So here’s a quick profile of one of my new faves – Enjoy!
Katie: Tell us about your first memory of singing.
Bo: My Granddad had an old piano and guitar at his house and he would teach my sisters and me old country songs and hymns and funny tunes when we were really young, I also sang in Church at a very early age, probably 4 or 5.
Katie: What was the first song you ever wrote?
Bo: The first one that I wrote and eventually played in front of people was called ‘Are You Listening?’, it’s a slow, 3 chord waltz about a guy trying to get a woman’s attention. We’ve all been there, right?!
Katie: If you could describe to someone whose never seen you perform, how would you describe your style of music?
Bo: I’ve been asked this question many times and I am still looking for a good answer! I guess the best way to describe it is Soulful Southern Rock, a little bit of everything we like mixed together.
Katie: Who would be the ultimate co-writer?
Bo: Willie Nelson, no question. He’s just the best and such a great human being also. Robert Earl Keen and Walt Wilkins would be right there at the top of the list too.
Katie: When can we expect a new CD?
Bo: It seems like we just released the EP ‘Songs About Girls’ yesterday, hard to believe it’s been a year! I’m still writing songs for the new full length album but we should be recording within the next few months and releasing it as soon as possible. I want to take my time and really get everything exactly how I want it with this album. It will hopefully be a better representation of what you hear at my live shows and the direction I’m heading as an artist as well. I’m extremely excited about it, I’ll definitely keep ya informed with our progress!
Bo Brumble is so entertaining…you HAVE to check him out as soon as you can! I’m happy to say that he will be opening for the one and only Jason Boland at The Redneck Country Club in Stafford on April 11. I will be there, will you?!
