From the highs of creating and releasing new music to the lows of serious health issues, singer-songwriter Bo Baskoro has had quite a year. Before hosting Bo on the program I had his music on my personal playlist, so I was more than excited to talk to him about the songs that had contributed to my soundtrack. At the beginning of the show we played Bo’s influences including Bleachers, Rainsford, Jack Garratt, and OneRepublic. We also spoke about his evolution as an artist, his approach to songwriting, and the lessons he took away from facing challenges with his health. During the second hour we played a great selection of Bo’s music along with his new single, High (Keep Up). I want to thank Bo for his relentlessly positive vibe and a great evening on the air.

At my core, I am a musician, songwriter, producer, studio owner/engineer, and, most importantly, a lover of all things music. It is my goal to help connect listeners to local artists. I believe we should all be searching for the next thing that inspires us.
I am originally from Arizona, where over many years, I played in several different independent bands in the Phoenix and Tucson areas. I put in many, many hours of grassroots-style promotion in order to get my bands heard. I am excited to be a part of Portland Radio Project where I can provide an avenue to local Portland musicians to share their art.
