Boris Titulaer, currently better known as Bo Saris, is a contemporary soul singer-songwriter from the Netherlands.

Biography[edit]

Bo Saris was born in Venlo, Netherlands. He currently resides in London, England. He was the winner of the second edition of the Dutch talent show Idols. Following a series of successful albums in the Netherlands, Bo moved to London to start afresh via a meeting with elusive superstar Bill Withers, after Bo performed at a tribute show in Amsterdam attended by the retired soul great in 2011.[1]

He sits well with the recent soul revival wave, similar to the likes of Amy Winehouse, Plan B, Jamie Lidell, Adele and Cee-Lo Green.

His first release under the moniker Bo Saris, She's On Fire, peaked at number 5 in the Dutch Alternative Music charts in August 2012.[2] The EP release included remixes from deep house heavyweight Maya Jane Coles and drum and bass legend Calibre. Both had a limited vinyl release.

He is also featured on the Chase & Status song "Breathing" from their 2013 album Brand New Machine.

Bo is signed to DERAM Records under Universal Music Group and has released two EPs - The Addict and Little Bit More - Remixes

A new album will follow in May 2014.
