A new addition to the culture capital’s colorful crown Wellington based Bohemian Thought emerges with his debut full length album ‘ Magnificent Dyslexic’.
Ancestrally hailing from Nigeria Bohemian is blessed with the gift of dyslexia which as a young adult saw him put music aside and instead carve himself a place within the IT industry in London. His dyslexia slipped past almost unnoticed in this world and within this realm he thrived in one way while spiritually starving himself in others.
Curiously at some point during this time Bohemian found words coming to him in the forms of songs which unearthed previously disregarded feelings within himself and inspired him to pursue music. After a brief foray into the spoken word, theatre and poetry scenes in London this new inspiration led Bohemian on a whirlwind journey that landed him in New Zealand in 2006.
A spoken word poet, singer, songwriter and percussionist (aka poetic philosopher) Bohemian connected with the local Wellington soul, funk, jazz and reggae scenes. After stints spent jamming with Batucada, Sam Manzanza & the Rhythm Africa Band and Olmecha Supreme, Bohemian Thought arrived at a space to develop his own songs with the assistance of Auckland producer Brofessional, The Urban Soul Orchestra (UK), studio engineer Benny Tones and a host of accomplished local musicians.
Accompanied by the beautiful players comprising his 9 piece band, Bohemian Thought's live performances capture the real essence of an artist whose true home lies upon the stage. His theatrical approach to the lyrical, along with his passion and energy he exudes, give room for a powerful stage presentation and performance.
Bohemian aims to inspire understanding and acceptance through his music which he has termed “true soul” music and essentially explores the concept of freedom, as seen through a dyslexic eye, with his debut album ‘Magnificent Dyslexic’ which he will self release in New Zealand 22nd of August 2011.
Magnificent Dyslexic – songs of freedom, “Emancipation of the spirit”
