Biography

Reading, Berkshire

Blueboy is the name of an indie pop band formed in Reading, Berkshire, consisting of Keith Girdler (vocals) and Paul Stewart (guitars), formerly of little-known bands Feverfew and The Rileys. They soon signed to Sarah Records, releasing the single Clearer in 1991, and soon took on more members, including singer/cellist Gemma Townlet and second guitarist Harvey Williams. Clearer was followed by several singles and two LPs, If Wishes Were Horses and Unisex. Their final release, The Bank of England, was released in 1998 on Shinkansen Records; by then, Girdler and Stewart were the only original members of the band. Girdler and Stewart were also involved in two other bands, Arabesque and Beaumont.

Blueboy’s songwriting touches on the timeless indie-pop motifs of intimacy and vulnerability, with a modicum of sexual ambiguity, both in lyrics and cover artwork. Their sound combines the jangly guitar-based pop sound of their genre with elements of bossa nova and shoegazer.
