BOSCO’s Aura At Girlschool Exuded A Calm Soulful Confidence REVIEW+PHOTOS: BOSCO @ GIRLSCHOOL 2/4/18
LOS ANGELES, CA- Prior to attending Girlschool, I spent some time getting familiar with the music I found online of some of the artists scheduled to perform. One of the artists whose music that I spent a considerable amount of time streaming on Soundcloud was BOSCO.
Signed to Fool’s Gold, BOSCO’s music was an etherial blend of neo-soul, electronica and jazz. The feeling I got with her was kind of the same feeling that I got when I first listened to Thundercat’s first album, but with a much firmer grasp of pop music elements. What I particularly liked about Bosco’s music was that while she clearly has some vocal chops, she doesn’t overtly flex her talents on wax. Rather, vocal tracks are recorded with a subdued and subtly elegant swagger.
The impression I got from listening to her music was manifested during her performance at Girlschool. Backed by a guitarist, a drummer and some backing tracks, her performance allowed for her inner smooth to shine as the soft stage lights gave her a matching visual aesthetic. She carried with her a clam confidence as she moved about the stage, really exuding a warmth that I certainly felt.
If you looking to find a new soul artist to keep tabs on, I highly suggest you explore her 2017 album “b.” like I did. I have feeling you will be pleasantly surprised.
