He plays guitar, harmonica and mandolin and he is backed by an incredible band of musicians known as "The Salt Licks". Once you hear his music, you will wonder how you ever got along without it! Once you become familiar with Boris' songs and his sandpapered-velvet voice you will be spoiled! These days "Americana" is a serious trend with lots of people jumping on the wagon. Just one listen and you know that Boris is the real deal. He has a delicious way of describing experiences from the everyday to the bizarre that make you take notice: "tiny hairs on tiny flowers, every inch of the earth is alive, take a dive"! Now get a look through Boris' eyes — hike down dusty trails and befriend the colorful characters that live in his songs. Please join Boris & The Salt Licks for the Cowgirl Brunch, as he pays tribute and plays selections from the songbook of legendary American country/folk singer-songwriter John Prine, as well as some of his own great original music! Boris and the Salt Licks have a great new CD, "Might Crash"! This release is the final installment in Boris' off the grid trilogy, Might Crash! follows up Wheel of Life and Bad Road, Good People, in a musical ode to the romance and reality of northern New Mexico. This album has all the trademarks of the incomparable Salt Licks sound, which seems to come right from the land itself. A soulful new set of Boris songs, full of alt.country, blues and a dose of eerie high desert lonesomeness. Might Crash reached #1 on the Euro-Americana charts in December 2013, and it reached #4 for January 2014!
