ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bosko & Honey have come of age with their gutsy new release, "The Universe Will Provide".
This 48 minute album contains 14 original songs highlighting Bosko & Honey's trademark playfulness and musicality, but also merging with deeper themes exploring hidden meaning, pathos and irony... yet somehow always maintaining a sense of genuine humanism. Seriously multi-genre, this album can be put on loop and listened to for hours... each song as surprising and delightful as the last. "The Universe Will Provide" is the must-hear ukulele album of the year, if not the decade.
Here's what people are saying so far...

"A mellow, exotic, comical and powerful album."
- Chisato Tsuwano, Rolling Coconuts Magazine, Japan

"Funky, great rhythms and lots of fun!"
- Masaya Takahashi, Worth Strings, Japan

"Nice brilliant sounding ukuleles played without nails. You are the only duo that really works like pro and the results are a delight, also they are your own outstanding creations. Very balanced collection with a lot of [rhythmic] variety & originality! Congratulations! I was sure you were not going to disappoint me."
- Herman Vandecauter, Musician, Belgium

"Congrats on a most brilliant, gutsy and innovative album! Love it! Bringing ukulele to a whole new level!! Thank you!!!"
- Joanna Cocking, Music Therapist, Peninsula Music Services, Australia

"The new album is gorgeous."
- Cat McLagan, Darwin, NT, Australia

"After listening to the album in heavy rotation this week, I have to say that I absolutely LOVE it. It is such an eclectic and thoughtful album filled with so many surprises - I found myself in such a space of joy listening to it and can tell a lot of love, time and energy has been invested into it - [Bosko & Honey] should both be very proud! There is a real synergy... that is captured when [they] play and sing together. The whole project feels like a labour of love and creativity - from the singing, songwriting, playing and artwork."
- Shaun Chandran, Musician and Humanitarian, WA, Australia

"Last night was the first time I cued up the whole album in [its] entirity and listened straight through without any distractions, and let me say [Bosko & Honey] have taken the game to a whole new level... what a pleasure each and every song was...
… some of that lickage is phenomenal and the mixture of [the] two voices [is] awesome... [Bosko] absolutely shredded on some of that strummin’... the funky groove on Sweet Stuff... boner material! There are so many textures... it's not all the same... even the vocals... this stuff is really good... its way above what a lot of people are doing... well constructed... complex but not overwhelming... fun and sexy... even a little goose-pimply on occasion! Enjoyed the wide [variety] in song stylings... the jazziness of chord structures... and, well, I listened to it 3 times back to back and it got better each time... in fact I just cued it up again so I could make sure I didn’t miss anything!
Overall I give it 6 stars... out of 5! BRAVO - the Universe surely did provide on this one!"
- Butch "Kharmachanic" Pierce, GA, USA

"...Bosko & Honey have done a remarkable thing… they’ve made an even better album than their first one! With this bulging (14 tracks) new offering they have taken all the strengths of their debut; virtuoso playing, great songs in many styles, cheeky wit, subtle sweetness, superior arrangements, and taken them to a new level.
There is a crispness and clarity to the album with lots of space for each song to unfold in. Nigel Pegrum's production sparkles but doesn't blind, highlighting the songs just so. The song writing is often deceptively simple, the playing at times unbelievably complex. Bosko and Honey have an ear for a great hook total command of ‘feel' and a canny knack of putting just the right elements into a song to make it glow. Their vocals are sweet-as, with harmony parts putting shivers in all the right places and care given to every phrase and word.
The music is eclectic. There's blue-grass and real country, spry reggae and punchy metal, rootsy folk and island soul and everything 'kinda pop rockin’ thang' in between. Genre hopping with ease Bosko and Honey delve into our psyches spot-lighting the wonder and confusion, the highs and lows of being human. There's the manic humour of 'Another Day in Paradise’, poking a stick in the eye of the lotus eaters. Title track ’The Universe Will Provide' takes the swooning rush and breathless drops of doof and techno and uniquely melds it into a beautifully haunting epic of faith.
This is a smart and often slick album full of sonic gems but it avoids the trap of being too clever and calculated, as the real passion and depth of the performances shines through at all times. The balance between talent and soul is fully realised - the heart is not secondary to the head.
So if you’re yearning for some joy and sweetness, some crazy laughs and thought provoking lyrics then don't bother asking the universe this time - Bosko and Honey have provided!"
- The Boogie Brothers CD Reviews, Australia, Feb 2015
