about

Boo Sutcliffe

Based in Yorkshire, England, Boo Sutcliffe writes songs that live in the space between indie, country and folk.

Boo grew up under the benign influence of two music-loving older brothers and his self-confessed “culture vulture” mother. “My musical taste was pretty much handed down to me, along with discarded action men, tragic jumpers and some unspeakable multi-coloured pants”, he says. “Fortunately, this was the 70s and my brothers had a pretty cool take on what was going on, so there was lots of Led Zep, Stones, Dylan, Queen, Neil Young and Simon and Garfunkel – then later, Bob Marley, The Clash, The Jam, Dire Straits and The Cure.

“Meanwhile, in that way she had of pointing me at things I might like without me really noticing she was doing it, mum had me watching old Frank Sinatra films and listening to Johnny Cash live at San Quentin.”

As a songwriter, Boo draws inspiration from the Americana and roots scenes (with a nod to alt rock and pop), citing influences as diverse as The National, Ryan Adams, David Bowie and Joni Mitchell.

“I also love a lot of North American novelists, who seem to practice a particular brand of sparse eloquence, where every word matters and there’s not a one out of place; I think that’s a good ethic to keep in mind when writing songs”, he says.

“It’s important that songs leave room for the listener. Even when you’re looking at a very personal or specific issue, a song needs that element of universality that helps people connect to it. The things you leave unsaid, the enigma, can be just as affecting as the words you spell out. Sometimes, songs only really come alive through the things individual listeners bring to them.”

Playing live, Boo is known as an intense, captivating performer, whether solo, with guest musicians or as part of a full band. He’s made a number of memorable festival appearances, including a marathon six gigs in two days at the prestigious Holmfirth Folk Festival, and support slots with the likes of Toploader, The Green Rock River Band and Dan Reed (Dan Reed Network).

Boo Sutcliffe’s debut album Blink was released in January 2021.
