Biography

Baillie & The Boys

When you hear the rich three-part harmonies driven by Kathie Baillie’s powerful heartstopping vocals, Michael Bonagura’s soaring guitar and Alan LeBoeuf’s solid bass line, the music of Baillie and The Boys will be forever inscribed on your mind and in your heart.
Baillie and The Boys have released six albums starting with their first for RCA Records in 1987 and including their most recent release “The Road That Led Me To You” on their own Synergy label. The common denominator of all of their releases, however, is the songwriting talents of Kathie Baillie and Michael Bonagura, and that talent is most evident on their latest CD. Seven of the 12 songs are co-written by Kathie and/or Michael, and an eighth song was co-written by Alan LeBoeuf, who had returned to recording and performing with Baillie and The Boys for the first time in ten years.

“The Road That Led Me To You” is a whole new direction for the group. This ain’t the Baillie and The Boys you thought you knew. Kathie Baillie has never sounded better, and this new release puts her squarely in the company of vocalists like Emmylou Harris, Joni Mitchell and Nanci Griffith.

Billboard magazine said of the Cd, “On this well-crafted album, the trio remind everyone of the musical magic that occurs when great songs skilled production and a stunning voice unite.” The review also went on to state. “In a perfect world where exceptional songs and great performances triumph over music biz machinery, this album would by multi-platinum.”

A live audition for RCA in the early eighties resulted in their first album release. “Oh Heart,” the first single by Baillie and The Boys was a top ten hit and became a trademark song for the group. Over the next four years they released four albums for the label, each to critical acclaim, and containing hit singles like “Long Shot,” “She Deserves You,” “A Fool Such As I,” “I Can’t Turn The Tide” and “Treat Me Like A Stranger.” The success of the music earned them awards and nominations from the Country Music Association, the Academy of Country Music and the TNN/Music City News Awards.

With their recent album and a new direction, Baillie and The Boys are back on the road and back on the radio, bringing music fans more great songs, great vocals and great harmonies. “The Road That Led Me To You” is a comfortable combination of country and folk styles that works anywhere you play it.
