Today I talk with the very talented songwriter and artist Luca Boskovic Bonini, aka Boskovic. Before we get into the interview I must mention the amount of talent I have been getting from Italy. Why Italy is not the next Seattle I will never know but Boskovic has officially made our list of most talented. Boskovic blends the rock of old with the Brit-pop sensibility that became famous in the mid 90’s and comes up with a sound that is not only truly his own but can be easily embraceable by the rest of the world. Check out the playlist of his latest release, “A Temporary Lapse of Heaven” to hear just what I mean. The interview was done via translator but the message cannot be lost and that message is good music. Enjoy!

Luca Boskovic Bonini, artistically known simply as Boskovic, was born in Vicenza on a cold December day in 1970. He inherited his passion for music from his father, who daily listened to classical music and was mostly attracted to Beethoven, Bach and Vivaldi.
When he is 12, he casually buys a Beatles long play record and is completely overwhelmed by the British pop energy and, later, by the rock and roll of the origins. With the passing of time the influence of the Beatles music, in particular of Paul McCartney, will strengthen his awareness that music is the ideal and natural setting where he can freely express his sensitivity and artistic talent. He buys himself a new guitar and as a self-taught student manages to master music well enough to be able to express his emotions.
When he is 16 he seriously starts playing the rhythmic guitar and singing in some bands, mainly performing classical rhythm and blues, rock and roll and beat songs.
When he comes of age, Luca begins his career as a songwriter, as well, and for many years he writes lyrics and songs mainly addressed to his family and friends. It was in 1995 that he founded the Fourback, a tribute band inspired to John Lennon and Paul McCartney, which is genuinely appreciated by the audience for the energy and friendliness it conveys.
He performs on several occasions: at private parties, in theaters, in clubs and during regional and/or national music events. In 2012 he decides the time is ripe to produce and release his first official CD, a collection of some of his most meaningful songs: A Temporary Lapse of Heaven.
