Soul Sensation Bosley Voted Baltimore's Best Band

BALTIMORE — Soul and funk are two of the few music genres that have never really gone out of fashion. Which may partly explain why the Baltimore-based band Bosley, by combining both styles with talent, was just elected best band of their city in this month’s issue of Baltimore Magazine.

Bosley was formed when frontman Bosley Brown decided to record his debut album, Honey Pig, in 2011, with fellow musicians he met along his musical career — a career which, according to this short biography, basically began the day he was born.

Brown started as an obscure folk singer in Baltimore, where he also recorded a few pop demos. But after finding little success in his home city, he soon decided to go busking around the United States.

In 2008, he was busted for vagrancy in Las Vegas and fled to Mexico, then Guatemala. It was there that he started playing weekly shows and drew his first big crowds. A year later, he returned to Baltimore, only to find that during his time away, his demos had gained popularity. He decided to move away from folk music and opt for the slicker mix of James Brown and Marvin Gaye that he is today.

Bosley’s second album, The Dirty Dogs Radio Show, was released in March and radiates the same atmosphere of simple coolness that Honey Pig did. Try not tapping your foot to this.

Parenting v. intimacy, a delicate balance

HAVANA — It was Summer, 2015. Nine months later, our daughter would be born. It wasn't planned, but I was sure I wouldn't end my first pregnancy. I was 22 years old, had a degree, my dream job and my own house — something unthinkable at that age in Cuba — plus a three-year relationship, and the summer heat.

I remember those months as the most fun, crazy and experimental of my pre-motherhood life. It was the time of my first kiss with a girl, and our first threesome.

Every weekend, we went to the Cuban art factory and ended up at the CornerCafé until 7:00 a.m. That September morning, we were very drunk, and in that second-floor room of my house, it was unbearably hot. The sex was otherworldly. A few days later, the symptoms began.

She arrived when and how she wished. That's how rebellious she is.
