Born and raised in Richmond, Virginia’s south side, H. “Bee” Boisseau, III is a man of faith, music, creativity, & ambition. He expanded upon his gospel music upbringing and jazz influences while studying at Norfolk State University (Norfolk, Virginia). While in the area, Bee began playing with local favorite, The Fuzz Band, who has shared the stage with the likes of Lauren Hill, Jill Scott, & Faith Evans. Other artists Bee has played or recorded with include: Jackiem Joyner, Will Donato, El Debarge, Ray Parker Jr., Chante Cann, Algebra Blessett, Marion Meadows, Paul Taylor, George Tandy, Jr, Karen Bernod, Tony Momrelle, Julie Dexter, Timotha Lanae, Nao Yoshioka, Hil St Soul, Eric Roberson, Tony Exum, Jr, Tres Gilbert, Tom Browne, Kurt Carr and the Kurt Carr Singers, and many others.
Since being brought onto the smooth jazz music scene in 2006 by bass player Vernon Barbary (Pockit, Warren Hill) as one of the premier side men in the genre, “Bee Boi”, as he would come to be known, stepped “Out Front” with his debut solo release by that title. The project’s lead single, “It’s A Habit”, which featured saxophonist Tony Exum, Jr., with it’s subtle progression & infectious melody, proclaimed Bee Boi’s arrival in the smooth genre as one of its rising stars. In total, Bee has released two holiday projects (Merry Mile Christmas , Cap City Christmas), three solo smooth jazz projects (Out Front, Off The Porch, Bee U.) as well as several hip-hop projects & collaborations using the artistic pseudonym, “MrBawsaw“.
