BOJOCKEY: Bojockey, a five-piece indie folk outfit, hailing from London have already made a strong name for themselves in the short year they’ve been together. They’ve found fans in the likes of Matt Wilkinson (Apple Radio), The Independent, BBC Introducing, and Loud & Quiet — and they’re only just getting started.  At the heart of the band is songwriter Samuel Williams, who first started Bojockey as a bedroom recording project. From there, the group grew, adding Helena Grace (vocals/bass), Dustin Price (guitar/vocals), Alex Shave (keys), and Remi Garrier (drums) to round out the lineup. Since banding together, they’ve released three strong singles — ‘My My,’ ‘Maker Made,’ and ‘Magpie’ — to rave reviews. Bojockey is their first full-length offering, though the road that brought them here was long and winding.

Williams grappled deeply with grief following the death of his grandmother, an experience that prompted him to reevaluate his own life and find change to navigate a healthy way forward. So, he returned to her now-empty house in Kempston for what he thought would be a week of adding the finishing touches to Bojockey’s first release. But during that time, something in Williams shifted.

He proceeded to scrap everything he’d spent eight months working on and decided to start again from the very beginning. Williams’ next 48 hours were a feverish burst of creativity, as he poured everything he had into crafting demos for a new, small group of songs. This batch was different from the first — Williams’ vulnerability was on full display as he crafted demos for the tracks, which spoke of grief, God, substance abuse, and self-doubt.

“These songs were written as a way of helping me understand and learn from what I could see happening around me,” Williams says of the project. “This album is a recurring plea for change, either aimed towards myself or as a helping hand for a loved one.”

Having released their self titled debut album (via Tiny Pocket) in October 2023, they followed the release with a sold out show at Brixton’s Windmill. Only having been together for a year, the group have immediately developed a special sound; distinctly homely and ambient, high and low.

“Bojockey is a mesmerizing body of work, one that serves as a meditation on the heaven and hell the human experience oscillates between — and the beauty that each of us creates when we find the courage to confront our own darkness.”
