CROSS-POLLINATION CXXVII - TUES JAN 30TH - 7:30-10 PM
THE BOY BATHING
CHRIS GLOVER

The Boy Bathing and mostly appeals to kids whose parents didn’t let them watch TV or girls who write in books that fit in pockets. He is disliked by most Republicans, oil mongers, and corporate types, and is misunderstood by happy people; they think the Boy Bathing sings sad songs.

“Operating with a runaway imagination and a love of words that I probably can’t capture in one phrase, the singer is a convincer. He’s both naive and wise, and the blend is fetching. He avoids the typical chords and templates, and the revelations are many.” - Jim Macnie, Providence Pheonix

“His songs are a mix of country, folk, and good old rock & roll in subject matter and projection… more deliberate than Bright Eyes and more surreptitiously malicious.” - Allen J. Clements, Heart Beats the Arts

"Chris Glover" is an original. Chris can sing, rap and play any instrument he picks up. He writes songs, samples sounds and produces his own tracks. He's making the music he wants to hear. "I describe my music as a person who has a lot of CD's and records and tapes of different genres of music; who is kind of bored by most music; who goes to listen to something and doesn't find it after going through every CD and makes music that he wants to listen to but can't find." This music shrugs off ideas about genre: it's not enough of any one thing and too much of everything. The songs bang like hip-hop beats and have melodies as pure as any pop song you've ever heard.
