Bo Saris: The Addict

Hailing from the Dutch city of Venlo, successful soul singer Bo Saris emerges onto the UK scene rebranded with his new single “The Addict.”

Saris was the second season winner of Idols, The Netherlands’ equivalent of Pop Idol, in 2004 under his real name Boris Titulaer. A platinum selling single and three Top 20 charting albums later, Bo has now decided to set his native success to one side and uproot to start anew in London.

The son of a jazz musician and citing Bill Withers, Prince, D’Angelo and Marvin Gaye as influences, Bo’s his new single “The Addict” comes produced by Dre Harris [of Dre & Vidal] and is a smooth, melancholic introduction to his upcoming EP, which you can look out for next month, following last year’s grooving buzz track “She’s On Fire.”
