Story of B.O.W
Hi, I’m Tommy Lopez, a composer, drummer, and producer of B.O.W. My connection with Ken Hensley dates back to 2003 when we recorded his album, «THE LAST DANCE» in Spain. I played the drums on the album and toured with him until 2006. During this time, I also had the opportunity to mix «THE WIZARD DIARY,» recorded in Russia and produced «INSIDE THE MYSTERY,» a revision of solo tracks written by Ken. We also remixed several other works, including «FREE ME» and «LADY IN BLACK.»
During the pandemic and lockdown, Ken and lyricist Vladimir Emelin collaborated on «MY BOOK OF ANSWERS,» with Ken providing the music and Vladimir writing the lyrics. Ken reached out to me to participate in the project, and we carried out the work primarily online throughout the pandemic. After arranging the songs, I recruited my usual studio musicians and Ken played guitar, the Hammond, and provided his distinctive voice. We then recorded video clips for all the songs and even decided to record a live concert with a chamber orchestra, choir, and the whole band. Unfortunately, this turned out to be Ken’s last concert, and after his tragic loss, the album was released by the English label, Cherry Red.
Following Ken’s death, Vladimir asked me to create music for his lyrics, and we started with the song «The Ghost of Time Apart.» Over the next four months, we composed 23 songs, with the help of new singer Marco May, who brought soulful vocals to the project. We decided to include all the songs in a double album, with the first CD featuring more medium-tempo, ballad-style songs and the second CD having a more powerful, rock-oriented sound.
To perform live, we hired Omar Martinez on keyboards and Rob Wolf on rhythm guitar, forming the B.O.W sextet. Moises Cerezo was replaced by Alex Sabile (Argentina) on bass in October 2022. In just one year, despite COVID restrictions, we have made a name for ourselves in the Spanish rock scene. Our goal is to promote ourselves internationally, as we believe our product will be well received. We have already played several concerts in Spain with a strong performance, and we aim to bring our high-energy shows to audiences outside the country.
