Bocephus King gets hot in the summer in Golden

The enigmatic Vancouver native, Bocephus King, will be back in Golden to play Summer Kicks in Spirit Square at 7 p.m. on Aug. 7.

The enigmatic Vancouver native, Bocephus King, will be back in Golden to play Summer Kicks in Spirit Square at 7 p.m. on Aug. 7.

King is well known for his melodious songs that effortlessly flow between blues, alternative country, traditional songwriting and modern aesthetics.

Now he has become the voice of a songwriter and musician on a new path, ever-creating his own distinct sound.

The results are nothing less than glorious on his new album Willie Dixon God Damn!.

Starting where he left off with traces of a genre that comes together by smashing joy and adventure in his previous critically acclaimed CD, All Children Believe in Heaven, King has sabotaged the typecasting.

King’s own voice has never been more present and contemporary. He avoids the easy answers and therein lies some of the majesty of the tone of Bocephus King’s latest work. The new album continues to present King as a cultural omnivore who eats with his mouth wide open. But the musical influences may as well be spoken of with the same weight as how literature and cinema are just as significant ingredients.

Also perfuming on the night will be the A-Muse Troupe.
