Boo Hewerdine, a singer-songwriter and record producer, is the lead singer and creative force behind The Bible, formed in the 1980s and re-formed in 1994. He has been described as ‘one of Britain’s most consistently accomplished songwriters’ and his songs have been covered by more than 50 artists.

He has worked with Scottish singer Eddi Reader, Kris Drever of Lau and Chris Difford of Squeeze and his nusical talent and timeless songs are complimented by his droll and dry humour.

In 2014, the release of his ‘best of’ compilation ‘My Name in Brackets’ drew the comment: “I decided to release a greatest hits - without ever having had one.”

This year, after the release of his EP ‘Born’, Boo has been working on the album ‘Swimming in Mercury’, due out shortly.
