There are at least three artists with the name "Boathouse"
1.) BoatHouse is a Chicago-based producer and member of the Closed Sessions collective. You may be more familiar with his work than you realize, as he’s the one who engineered the Chance The Rapper and Lil B Based Freestyle mixtape from 2015. Beyond producing on tracks, Boathouse also released an instrumental EP, Girl, at the tail end of 2015.
To follow Girl and premiered via This Song is Sick earlier today, we now have a new EP from Boathouse that features the likes of Allan Kingdom, Drea Smith of Pyyramids, and others. On Hibernation, Boathouse creates an atmospheric soundscape across the span of four songs and demonstrates that he knows which artists have the ability to complement that soundscape.
2.) Boathouse began with childhood friends Gerry McCrudden and Kieran Hughes. Soon they gathered their eclectic recruits: Micky McAuley (Bass), Keir Hurley (Drums), and lastly Amy McGarrigle (Vox/guitar).
Gerry and Kieran’s musical disguises were numerous from school, but it wasn't until 2006 that they settled on Boathouse. After releasing an initial demo and a few line-up changes, Boathouse began playing a host of dates around Northern Ireland.
The name began to spread, and their reputation went before them as a band. As BBC’s Stuart Bailie said in an interview, are all about the intensity live with “eyeballs bulging and perspiration on the forehead”. Gerry nicely replied, “like a minor beating around the head”.
With such a reputation live, Boathouse went into the studio with the intent of reproducing that intensity for the record. The “What I Remember’ EP was the result and didn't disappoint. They had airplay on BBC Radio Ulster, BBC Radio 1 N and supported the likes of the Guillemots, Bowerbirds, Eugene McGuincess and Shearwater.
They were said to have elements of Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene, The Hold Steady, Roy Orbison and Interpol. They broke up in May 2009
3.) The band "Boathouse" responsible for the album "Apollo" (http://www.last.fm/music/Boathouse/Apollo) is an ambient/electronic/groove act. The album is released on Beachcomber Records.
