Short Bio – Boris Buhot (Be-U-Oh) aka United Truce, is a native Torontonian, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter with a powerful collage of alternative-grunge-folk styles, which migrate through themes of inner truth and much needed outer change.
One Paragraph Bio – Boris Buhot (Be-U-Oh) was imprinted by that era of music caught between the Beatles and The Smiths. His debut album, 1041, was largely crafted in the late 70’s and early 80’s but not recorded and produced until almost 30 years later under the pseudonym United Truce. Containing flavours of punk and 70’s new wave rock, it is an energetic, soul-searching, shroud-ripping, musically dense alarm for change and inner self-realization. Simply put, an album that speaks beyond music, a siren for change.
Full Length Bio – Boris Buhot (Be-U-Oh) is a Canadian independent songwriter with songs inspired from an eclectic array of tastes set within an alt-grunge-folk format. His thought provoking music, and versatility as a vocalist/multi-instrumentalist have stirred music journalists to note his live performances as being “powerfully original” “talented and compelling” “a passionate artist”. 1041, the follow-up debut album to the EP We’ll Be Flying, were both released under the peacemaking moniker United Truce. Boris’ songs resonate with “menacing energy” and a sweeping range of ideologies based around themes of mother earth, and the human condition, with a philosophy of spirituality, responsibility, and brotherhood. Newly released singles, “I’m in Love with You so Hard”, and “Cast Away”, hearkens a soul-full connection to his craft far deeper dimensionally than that of his earlier credits.
“I write music to feel right about who I am, and the more I play the more I feel I fit into the stream of life”. Influenced by BTO, The Clash, English Beat, John Lennon, George Harrison, The Beatles, The Sex Pistols, Bowie, Radio Head, World Party, XTC, REM, Nazareth, John Martin, Neil Young and many incredible independent artists from the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.
