Bo DePeña

Bo DePeña grew up in the border town of Laredo, TX. While the Texas/Mexico border usually has an affinity towards Rap, Tejano, and Country, Bo grew up with a unique passion for Rock N' Roll and Blues. At the age of seven, he picked up the guitar for the first time and hasn't put it down since. In 2005 he moved to San Antonio, TX where he spent four years playing around town while pursuing a business degree. In 2006, he performed a short set outside of Austin, TX on Lake Travis with country music legend Rusty Weir. What started out as an open mic night at Aunt Tilly's Bar turned into an all out jam, when Weir and his harmonica player decided to join Bo on stage. By 2009, Bo had moved to Austin where he began to embrace a sound that was true to the roots of American music, with influences such as Lightning Hopkins, Townes Van Zandt, and Doc Watson. While he continued to play with several bands, and often sat in as a lead blues guitarist, he maintained his focus on songwriting. Now living in New York City, he looks to further his talents and test his chops in one of the most competitive markets in the world. His rootsy influences combined with his passion for entertainment and high-energy live performance has allowed him to develop into a unique young artist, fully capable of captivating the toughest of music listeners.
