Interview: Jonathan Boulet – Bon Voyage

Last week Jonathan Boulet performed his last Australian show for a while. Playing before friends in his home town of Sydney, Boulet will now be travelling overseas to perform at SXSW and tour the States before settling in Europe to work on his next album.

It was an impressive 2012 for Boulet, releasing his stellar sophomore solo album We Keep The Beat, Found The Sound, See The Need, Start The Heart. It was an album that spawned unique singles like You’re A Animal, Trounce and, perhaps most impressively, This Song Is Called Ragged.

Sitting with Music Feeds before his ‘last show’, Boulet chatted candidly about the devolution of his live show, changes he’d make to We Keep The Beat…, the importance of sounding different and the current state of Australian music.

Bon Voyage, Mr Boulet – we wish you the best of luck!
