Somewhere deep in Portland, Oregon lives singer/songwriter Bo Baskoro. Bo blends digital and analogue sounds to create a sound that is unique and interesting.
Early life was tough for him but he fought against the obstacles he faced and his first single “The Woman” was released late in 2016. The music industry’s collective ears were pricked. People say up and took notice after he was featured in a mini documentary with Maxwell House® which touched upon his early life and his determination to succeed. As part of the story, they took Bo to LA to work with producer Harvey Mason Jr (who has worked with the likes of Aretha Franklin, Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson.) The resulting song, “High” became the soundtrack to the coffee company’s advertising campaign.
July 12th saw the release of his newest single 'Levee', the result of an important personal process that he experienced in 2018 and early 2019. 'Levee' comes from the response to experiencing personal hard times and unhealthy subconscious escapes to survive.
The song actually releases all those bad feelings and moments and transform the hard experiences into a new way to look to the future and the vibes indicate that Bo probably found his path in music.
"Levee came from the idea of finding that one thing or that one person that changes the way you see yourself and the way you live. You become aware of the bad habits and unhealthy escapes you've had all your life and now have the opportunity to wash away those poisons."
