"Healing the Heart" by Boon (Rock Artist from South Africa)
POSTED BY: momof5pacs POSTED ON: 18 Jan 2009 07:50 PM

RadioIndy is pleased to present Boon with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Healing the Heart"

“Healing the Heart” is an exceptional acoustic EP filled with pop rock tunes and heartfelt ballads alike from South African singer/songwriter Boon. Boon’s arrangements use solely acoustic instruments – guitar on the first five tracks, piano on the closer – and he skillfully crafts a melodic and full sound. Boon has a unique baritone male vocal ( reminiscent of Peter Murphy) with a strong, emotive delivery that helps fuel the meanings of the songs. The songs on “Healing the Heart” range from positive and promising to lonely and downtrodden lyrics that are both well-phrased and relatable. This EP is well-produced and sounds professional, many of the tracks ready to hit the airwaves. “Secret Island in the Sun” opens the album with a great in-your-face acoustic arrangement that later incorporates hand claps, whistles and catchy, imaginative lyrics with a message. “Oxygen” closes things out with a piano ballad that features an outstanding vocal delivery and great lyrics, including the chorus line “Money isn’t everything, but it’s the closest thing to oxygen.” Overall, “Healing the Heart” is quite the impressive showing from Boon, featuring well-crafted acoustic songs, a unique vocal performance, and thought-provoking lyrics. Fans of acoustic pop rock and talented singer/songwriters, give Boon a listen.
