Bo Saris was born in Venlo, Netherlands, and now resides in London, England. He was the winner of the second edition of the Dutch talent show Idols. Following a series of successful albums in the Netherlands, Bo moved to London to start afresh – via a meeting with elusive superstar Bill Withers, after Bo performed at a tribute show in Amsterdam attended by the retired soul great in 2011.
His first release, She's On Fire, peaked at number 5 in the Dutch Alternative Music charts in August 2012. The EP release included remixes from Deep House heavyweight Maya Jane Coles and Drum and Bass legend Calibre. Both had a limited vinyl release.
He sits well with the recent soul revival wave of Amy Winehouse, Plan B, Jamie Lidell, Adele and Cee-Lo Green.
