Cinematic Pop Music from Berlin
Songs that stop time. Boy Acosha turns seemingly small stories into universal narratives about love, fear, courage, doubt, fury or hope. Music as deceleration, full of radiant clarity, a new draft of Pop, full of depth, full of sparkle and: a cinematic flair.
"One day after I watched the movie Spirited Away by Hayao Miyazaki, a mysterious anime from 2001, it really stuck with me. The impression of the huge bathhouse, the girl Chihiro, Yubaba the witch, the various ghosts, the atmosphere of rain, baths, rivers and the ocean, I was totally drawn in. That was the moment when I started to write songs about it."
Growing up with the longing to write his own melodies, Boy Acosha surrounded himself with music from childhood. Attending rehearsals of his fathers Irish Folk band, was chosen to sing in a Baroque children's choir and received Jazz and Classical piano training. Today he switches effortlessly between musical genres, contributing with his vast musical knowledge to music projects in many different roles.
Moving to Berlin, Boy Acosha was engaged as producer/engineer for bands and artists of many different styles. After diving deep into Folk, Soul, Jazz, Chanson, Classical, Trap and Hip Hop, Boy Acosha now emerges with a comprehensive bouquet of original songs.
"Since the moment I decided to make a solo record I am literally swamped by ideas. I feel I'm bursting with melodies. There is plenty of everything. Wonder and curiosity. Emotion, vulnerability, tenderness, euphoria, magic."
