Boy & Bear- Southern Sun and Three Headed Woman

In crazy, happy anticipation of tonight’s concert, I thought I would share the band that has my ears lately.


Boy and Bear is from Sydney, Australia and I found them listening to EAV radio, here in Atlanta. Then, I stumbled on them again when they appeared on Conan. With their thoughtful lyrics and their alternative, folk rock sensibilities, they definitely have my full attention.

They are David Hosking (vocals and guitar), Killian Gavin (vocals and guitar), Timothy Hart (drums and vocals), Jonathan Hart (vocals, banjo, mandolin and keyboards) and David Symes (bass). They have an album out now, Harlequin Dream. After further research, I found that they earned multiple awards in Australia, from breakthrough songwriter of the year to best group. If that doesn’t pique your interest, then just listen with your own ears.

“So come on, come on, I’m ready now
I got the feeling, honey, like I’m ready to roll
You see I’m not gonna wait til the ending
Cause I’ve got the burning fire in the bed of my soul”


“Oh but I hate you sometimes, for making me feel
The way I feel, for the love that keeps me sane
Is killing me all the same,
It’s killing me it’s killing me, I’m done”
