near Toronto, Canada, Bozwell had the urge to write music at an early
age. His first childhood "composition" was a dirge for his
pet gerbil, banged out on the low keys of the family piano into a
small tape recorder. At age 11, he talked his parents into buying him
an electric guitar and began lessons. By 15 he had "learned to
wail" on the guitar and joined his first band, where he wrote
most of the music. He played in area bands for the next several years,
all of which featured original music in a variety of styles, which he
wrote, or co-wrote with other band members. By the time his 3 year
stint with area group MetroGnome was up, he had become fascinated with
recording techniques and synthesizers and he knew what he wanted to
do: create an elaborate home studio in which to record his music.
And so he did. A perfectionist at heart, with a desire to learn all he could, Bozwell sought out the best teachers, studying harmony, counterpoint, flamenco, jazz, electronics and recording techniques. He studied classical guitar for five years with the renowned Eli Kassner. At the same time he continued his songwriting, developing his eclectic rock style and making his recordings. A prolific composer, Bozwell has now written some 200 songs.
