Boh Doran has been performing since she could barely walk. Her early days playing festivals and music halls throughout her native Midwest launched a nomadic musical journey that has taken this stunning singer/songwriter/musician from coast to coast and everywhere in between.
High School graduation and a brief foray into politics brought Boh to the Nation’s Capitol, but the pull of creativity proved to be too great. She formed a band and named it after one of her earliest inspirations – her New Orleanian great – grandmother. Milly Beau’s strong live shows in and around D. C. got the attention of indie label Greentribe Records who signed them to a deal in 2008. Four productive years later the band, now in NY, parted ways and Boh decided it was time to go it alone. As usual, she took the show on the road.
The solitude Boh found living and writing for a time on a rural Iowa farm inspired a new voice and a shiny new batch of demos. Next stop – LA.
Once on the West Coast, she began a collaboration with producer/writers Ethan Mentzer (The Click 5) and Jon Kaplan (New Politics, Ingrid Michaelson, A Great Big World) that built on the nascent Iowa demos and became the songs that comprise the self-titled debut Boh Doran solo EP.
Influenced by the classic soul and rock writers of the 60s and 70s and laced with a blend of retro groove and modern indie pop production, “Boh Doran” explores the deeper and sometimes darker side of the human heart. Boh describes it as “a smoky take on the hungry side of love”.
Boh Doran is endorsed by Gibson and has been featured on NBC’s Jimmy Lloyd Songwriter Showcase, Italian Vogue, The Huffington Post, Radar Online, Kings of A&R, The Burning Ear, and others.
