About

Jon Boden

Jon Boden is best known is the lead singer of the progressive folk juggernaut Bellowhead who sold 250,000 album, had seven singles playlisted on Radio 2 and sold out hundreds venues including The Royal Albert Hall.

Since Bellowhead split up in 2016 Jon has continued his development as one of the foremost names in English folk music.

Solo Jon performs the self-penned songs of Painted Lady, material from Bellowhead, Spiers & Boden, Songs From The Floodplain, and his A Folk Song A Day project in which he recorded 365 folk songs in one year, material from his latest album Afterglow and more.

Press reviews of 'Afterglow':
'Recalling Gabriel-era Genesis with a dash of Bush and Bowie' Observer
'Springy fingerpicking and rolling drums convey the thrill of an anarchic street celebration.' Independent
'Vivid lyrics, striking imagery, fascinating ideas, challenging arrangements and Boden's characteristically striking vocals...it has to be considered a Major Work.' fRoots
'"Moths In The Gaslight" has an affectingly melancholy melody; "All The Stars Are Coming Out Tonight" resurrects the brassy swagger of Bellowhead.' **** Financial Times
