The Bony King of Nowhere is the pseudonym of Belgian singer-songwriter Bram Vanparys. He released his debut album ‘Alas my love’ to critical acclaim in 2009, which was followed by his second and most celebrated album ‘Eleonore’ in 2011.
In the aftermath of ‘Eleonore’ he was asked to write the film score for the movie ‘Les Géants’, for which he was awarded by Les Magritte du Cinéma for best original soundtrack.
After having released two full-length albums that comprised atmospheric songs and playful arrangements, Vanparys started exploring his interest in true songwriting in the likes of Leonard Cohen and the inevitable Bob Dylan. In 2013 he released his most stripped down album, which was followed by his fourth LP, recorded in Los Angeles with Ray LaMontagne’s former live band. The americana driven album ‘Wild flowers’ was released in 2015 and The Bony King of Nowhere was renamed simply Bony King.
But soon Vanparys started exploring new territories, partly because he felt that his almost archaic approach on songwriting was pushing him down a dead end street and partly because his interest in complex arrangements started to pop up again. In 2016 he bought a trailer and went living in the countryside to work on his new sound. A harsh winter and a tragic breakup with his wife set the mood for a new set of songs and Vanparys started recording again under his moniker The Bony King of Nowhere.
His fifth album ‘Silent Days’ is out now on Unday Records.
