For a multi-disciplinary artist like BOSCO, the art of storytelling comes in many forms. Trained in fashion design at the Savannah College of Architecture and Design (SCAD), BOSCO has been making strides in the indie music scene for the past 5 years, while simultaneously launching her own creative agency, SLUG. Advancing each lane, one idea at a time, BOSCO's latest release takes us inside her personal life of love and relationships.
Following her acclaimed EP, BOY, in 2015, the Savannah, Georgia native has released her much-anticipated EP, b. – a collection of 8, transparent and revealing songs that chronicle her personal journey through her 20-somethings and relationships. After a series of EP's it seems like BOSCO has hit her stride - compiling all of her musical influences, styles, and writing, creating her most cohesive project to date.
Possessing a keen eye for fashion and avant-garde R&B musical leanings, it's easy to make comparisons to Solange, H.E.R., or SZA. But, dig a little deeper, and you'll begin to see layers: a brand of music that's experimental and fresh, and not wholly committed to any, one genre. With poetically crafted lyrics, b. presents the listener with an intimate look inside the hardships and range of emotions of a failed relationship (Adrenaline, Castles, Luv U, Cruel), and ultimate transition (Flowers). The diary-lite level of transparency and vulnerability into BOSCO's life make b. appealing, taking down a wall that often shields artists.
Incorporating elements of R&B, Rock, Trap, and Pop b. features production credits from Haunted, Sammy Bananas, Reo, and NEVR, as well as guest appearances from Atlanta-based duo and Wondaland artists – St. Beauty, long-time Kendrick Lamar collaborator, Anna Wise, and jazz-vocalist and pianist, Niia.
