oo City was formed in 2009 by long time friends, vocalist Tai Awolaju and guitarist Andrew Moon Bain. Both accomplished singer/songwriters in their own right, Awolaju and Bain previously played in different projects nationally and around Providence, RI . Bain has also been an active and prolific record producer for the last decade. After a simultaneous performance hiatus they came together to form this original band.
Boo City is a creative mix of music styles that merge seamlessly. You might hear Country-Blues and Indie Rock forged in the same song. In another track you will feel Reggae influences with Retro-Soul and Folk elements. An intoxicating vocal blend is cast with Tai Awolaju’s smokey, sultry voice and Andrew Moon Bain’s deep tone sharing the lead vocal and harmony positions. The horns of Frank Moniz and Grayson Farmer enhance this dynamic, creating a soulful and melodic sound. The constant groove is set by Harrison Milloff’s creative and funky bass lines. Boo City’s music is energetic, whimsical, fun, melodic and edgy all at once. This talented group of musicians are on track to embody a fresh sound in Providence RI and American music.
