RAW Boswin and the Gonnabees is the culmination of over 25 years of blood, sweat, tears and relentless pursuit of music by this born-and-raised Edmontonian Singer/Songwriter Rob Oswin. Writing, recording and performing in so many venues has produced the rich tracks presented here. Raw Boswin’s attention to detail in the studio and Rob's "show-don't-tell" approach to songwriting are fortified by his deep and personal lyrical content.
RAW Boswin's music appeals to all ages and demographics. As the list of influences would imply, the songs are melodic and meaningful, and anything goes. Musical tone and mood are masterfully used to emblazon each track with an attitude or undercurrent for the lyrics and melody to bounce off of. Each song in RAW Boswin's catalogue is strong and personal.
