feel-good vibe ... Des Boheme
Des Boheme is a Kiwi American singer-songwriter and producer residing in Minneapolis-Saint Paul, USA. Des B is akin with Bohemianism morphed for a modern-day finding meaning in life through creative expression, and the experiences, memories, and connections made along the way. His musical influences range from early Rock 'n' Roll
to many contemporary hit songs from all genres.
DES BOHEME’s melodic signature sound resonates across Singer-Songwriter, Indie & Folk-pop and Adult Contemporary genres.
Born Anton Desmond Ryan in Auckland, New Zealand, and a naturalized citizen of the United States of America, DES BOHEME was previously known as emerging Neo-Folk artist Anton Ryan in the early 2000s after his music caught the attention of veteran industry mogul John Woodruff (Savage Garden, The Angels). In 2018, after bootlegs of his SBS recording sessions with drummer Mark Kennedy (Men at Work, Marcia Hines, Jimmy Barnes), and bassist Chris Bailey (The Angels, Ganggajang) resurfaced, DES’s passion for composing and performing was reignited.
By late-2019 he amassed a large catalog of new material. He racked up several solo gigs prior to COVID at local venues such as The Silver Lake Lounge and Bar 20 on Sunset Boulevard, performing alongside popular local artists.
Coming of age as a musical artist later in life, writing and recording his best work, Des B says's “...it's funny because I didn't know what to expect after such a long hiatus."
