Bowery Boy Blue’s official beginning can be traced back to the winter of 2005 when Zeb Gould released the five song EP Bowery Boy Blue Gives the Kids What They Want, on the NYC-based Space Photo Records (SPR-LTD 004). However, the release of the EP and the subsequent shows that followed were the culmination of the years prior to 2005, in which Gould, newly arrived in New York City, began writing songs and releasing albums under the moniker Stereofan with his partner in crime (and now wife) Megan Gould. The two self-released four albums in just under one year before signing on with the Chicago based label Lelp Recordings to release their first official CD Stain My Heart (Lelp 1985) in early 2005.
• It is around this time, mid 2005, when a subtle shift in songwriting led Gould to a new project and a new identity, Bowery Boy Blue. Although mostly an acoustic project at it’s outset, it quickly became apparent that more saturated sounds and textures were close at hand.
