Eric Robertson and the Boston Boys

The sound of Eric Robertson and the Boston Boys sound is contemporary roots-rock, blending reverence for the Beatles and the energy of the Avett Brothers with hints of Appalachian string band music. The goal of the Boston Boys is to create tasteful, accesible, groovy, meaningful music with the highest regard for musicianship and instrumental skill.

Saxophonist Jesse Scheinin is looking for something new. Music that sounds and feels like 2011 but that has the energy and spontaneity of '60s jazz—Sigur Rós meets Coltrane—is the goal. His songs are about dreams, adventures, and growing up. Inspired by the magical realism of authors Gabriel García Márquez, Haruki Murakami, and Jorge Luis Borges, Scheinin tries to bring listeners into a state of fantasy. Having been mentored by Joshua Redman, Danilo Perez, and Billy Harper, Scheinin is completing his studies at Berklee.

Tubby Love and Eric Robertson come from very different musical roots grown in the same soul. The idea of a collaboration stemmed from their mutual appreciation for good songs without regard to style or genre. The young duo will be teaming up to create a fresh breed of earthy acoustic sounds and touring hard to promote the new project.
