'Boulevard' is a dreamy and introspective pop album. Richard Wilson co-wrote 3 of the songs with Sophia Forrester who added her soulful influences. The album was actually started as far back as December 1991, when Richard Wilson recorded the title track 'Boulevard' at Yell Studios in Northampton, England on a freezing winter's day. The concept and direction of the album was then solidified, when Sophia started working with some of the newer songs recorded in 1993-4. Keyboards, percussion, clarinet and sax also augment the arrangements. It so hard to pigeonhole the style - but probably the nearest to 'the Richard Wilson vibe', would be Stephen Duffy from The Lilac Time ( a semi famous 80's pop band in England) and maybe Nick Heyward of Haircut 100 fame. With Sophia's influence there are elements of Tracey Chapman and Joan Armatrading. This album also pre-dates India Arie and Dido by about 8 years and is now available for the first time on CD. Anyway, you the listener can decide. Enjoy!
