My musical Journey began at age five, passing through drums, accordion, guitar, trumpet, flute, recorder, and piano, settling on the guitar at age 14. Since those early days, I've been tossed around on the sea of life, wandered off the straight and narrow path and back, experienced the sunshine and rain of life, survived the fury of my own personal storms, and wrote almost 200 songs along the way.
As a singer-songwriter, I have spent many years performing in concert halls, coffee houses, small clubs, county fairs, backyards, and living rooms all across the country. Most of the time I sang cover tunes composed by my singer-songwriter heroes, while sometimes adding in a few of my own original songs. Through the years, my original song list grew to over one-hundred songs. Eventually, my set-lists were filled with more of my own songs and fewer cover songs. Today, I perform my own songs exclusively.
My new album, Sunshine or Rain, is comprised of my original songs. It is the beginning of my adventure as an all original singer-songwriter. The songs I've included in the album were written across a wide span of years, some from the '70s, some from the '80s, and some are more recent works. They reflect a mix of musical styles (folk-rock, country-rock, soft jazz), sharing my personal reflections on life's ups and downs. They're a short tour of my musical journey. Fitting myself into a specific genre is not easy, so I just tell people I'm an Indie/Americana artist. The bottom line is it all comes from my heart.
Enjoy!! G Stephen Bosk
