Bo Saris lists Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, Prince, and Michael Jackson as his primary influences. The sound of “The Addict” is rooted in the past, but it’s pulled off with such skill and genuine emotion that the psychedelic visual effects match perfectly with Saris’ approach to the musical landscape.
“Watch out for the addict; he’s always trying to bring you down, down, down,” cautions Bo Saris in his silky, soulful voice, delivering a message that’s grave, yet chillingly beautiful.
The London-based, Dutch vocalist has been quietly releasing music for a decade and, thanks to a new deal with Decca Universal in the United Kingdom, “The Addict” is his ticket to a new, overseas audience. That’s fortunate, as the song is a welcome revelation. – Billboard
Bo Saris – She’s On Fire
A precious love that is lifting me higher
But I don’t even know her name
Oohh She’s On Fire,
She’s every man’s dream and my desire
