Boxer The Horse: Boneyard
Finding its home in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, what began as a folk duo consisting of guitarist/vocalist Jeremy Gaudet and bassist Richard MacLeod eventually grew into Boxer The Horse with the addition of drummer Andrew Woods and Isaac Neily on guitar and keys. Together for two years, the four almost 20-somethings have been performing around Charlottetown with a few stops in Halifax and a showcase at the 2008 East Coast Music Awards in Fredericton along the way.
|After recording a short five song demo, the limited pressing of only 50 copies were quickly nabbed at a Battle of the Bands for 16-year old French exchange students in 2007. They followed it up with their debut EP The Late Show, which they recorded with Adam Gallant at his studio in PEI and released in April 2008. From the Beatles-y opener “Boneyard,” which was featured on PEI’s annual compilation album Well Oiled II, to the upbeat sing-a-long closer “Ohio,” The Late Show is six solid tracks emphasizing the group’s versatility and rich musical influences.
Boxer The Horse’s signature mix of classic rock n’ roll and jangly-pop draws on some of music’s biggest names including The Kinks, Bob Dylan, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Strokes and Tom Waits.
