Best Songwriter Miami 2010 - Boxwood

Boxwood (AKA Jose Ferrer) says he almost exists as two separate entities. There's the contemplative songwriter, at home in his warehouse space turned loft/studio, laying down each track of each song and penning thoughtful and often poignant lyrics that probe various aspects of the human condition. An examples is "There a Fire," in which he sings, "And I know these things are going to have to wait/By the time you wake up they'll be gone." And there's the artist you see at his captivating performances, where he constructs songs from scratch; the guy is a one-man band relying on an array of instruments and loop pedals as well as his own ingenuity. He's reluctant to become known for the latter, preferring to focus on his content. But to the outside observer, it's just more evidence of an incredibly creative and inventive songwriter and musician.

Boxwood's lyrics are beautifully subtle. When he sings, his voice captures you like a spell, and you're hypnotized by the presence of his sound. Listen to his voice; it just grabs you and won't let go.

Boxwood dares to do alone what the rest of the two million nine hundred ninety nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine (according to fughetti) can't even imagine doing.

Congrats Jose !: )!

Is not about being the Best or not. We all have our own preferences. Jose is withouth a doubt a superb musician and song writer and this is a well deserved honor. Nothing will go to his head and this is great to get some people to know him and hear his stuff. As a musician and a supporter of local arts I'm glad Boxwood got this mention and I sincerely congratulate him. We all are working hard but surely we can stand behind a fellow songwriter and just let him know he did a great job. We all can rise together instead of shooting each other down.

The most talented songwriter in Miami. I wake up to "Langley" every morning.

Boxwood is said to be the word that describes the smell of cat urine.

With a population of 3 million, is "boxwood" really Miami's best songwriter of 2010?

keep up the hard work though man, we all are. Just don't let something like this get to your head.
