Boh Runga

Like Feist, Ingrid Michaelson and Sarah Bareilles, Boh Runga is the next singer-songwriter to keep your eyes on.

Hugely popular outside the United States, Boh Runga’s songs are an eclectic mix of modern and classic pop influences.

Boh's debut US solo album 'Right Here' (out July 14, 2009 self released digital only; Katipo Music) was produced by Marshall Altman (Greg Laswell, Marc Bourssard, Brooke Fraser) and is strongly reflective of her time spent transplanted to a life in Silver Lake, and covers the classic themes that make great pop music, love, loss and life.

Boh Runga's New Zealand band Stellar is second only to Crowded House in terms of New Zealand music royalty.

After signing to Sony in 1999, Stellar quickly became Sony's number one selling Kiwi band. Along with multi-platinum sales Stellar has also been awarded 8 Tui Awards (NZ Grammys) for their first two albums.

On 'Right Here', Boh has a very notable, yet eclectic roster of artists contributing to the album including Serj Tankian (System of a Down) and writing collaborations with Wendy Melvoin (Prince and the Revolution), Kevin Savigar, Rod Stewart's songwriter and Shelly Peiken who wrote "Bitch" for Meredith Brooks and also "Genie in a Bottle" for Christina Aguilera.

Boh Runga

A multi-faceted artist, Boh Runga channels the same artistic energy and spirit from her songs to her other passion: jewelry design.

She runs an extremely successful New Zealand based jewelry line that will also be making its way to the states this summer. Demand was so high that they were just recently, able to catch up to production, so be on the look out for Boh inspired jewelry in boutique stores near you!

Boh is based in Los Angeles for the time being and thus far has two shows scheduled at the Little Room at Largo.
