Boo Hewerdine lives in Cambridge, England. He's incredibly tall. That's a good thing, because his large frame has to accommodate a massive talent. A singer of real depth and emotion, a musician who can coax a melody out of anything he picks up and a songwriter who never fails to hit the mark. He has it all.
Boo has had a long and diverse career: he fronted British band The Bible for several years, before establishing himself as a solo artist, opening for such artists as Tori Amos, Michelle Shocked, Richard Thompson and Loudon Wainwright III. He is well-respected as a songwriter, his songs having been covered by artists as diverse as kd lang, Natalie Imbruglia and even Mel C of the Spice Girls! He is perhaps best known for his work with Fairground Attraction singer Eddi Reader, with whom he recorded the album 'Angels and Electricity' and the chart success 'Patience of Angels', which was nominated for the Ivor Novello award for Song of the Year. In recent years he has also collaborated with fellow Bible guitarist Neill MacColl to produce soundtracks for 'Fever Pitch' and 'twentyfourseven'.
Boo returned with the 'Extras' EP in autumn 2002, and a new album 'Anon' in spring 2003.
