Born and raised in Carson, California to Hawaiian parents and into a musical family, Bo Napoleon has been a committed musician since the age of 9 when his dad, Kevin “Nappy” Napoleon, first handed him a Ukulele. At age 11, he started mastering the guitar and composing original material which continued throughout his teenage years. 

Following in his father’s footsteps as a singer songwriter in the Reggae Island genre, Bo’s success as a writer came quickly when he wrote two hit singles for the Common Kings, “Wade In The Water” and “Alcoholic”. A frequent collaborator with the group, another single penned by Bo called “Take Her” appeared on Common Kings’ Grammy nominated album “Lost In Paradise”.

Subsequent to the success of “Wade In The Water” and “Alcoholic”, Bo independently released his first single “Another Rainbow” and was immediately embraced by Hawaii’s Reggae radio stations. With the radio success of “Another Rainbow” two more singles quickly followed at the request of the radio stations, “Born and Raised” and “Rastaman, which also celebrated the same success. 

Bo’s biggest hit to date was yet to come with the release of “If That’s Okay”. Released in Hawaii, “If That’s Ok” had remarkable commercial success with the support of 98.5, 
iheartmedia’s Reggae and Contemporary Hit station, and quickly crossed over to Top 40 Mainstream. Jamie Hyatt, Sr. VP of Programming/Honolulu at iHearMedia is quoted as saying “the song transcends format boundaries; #1 test all media research, #1 single sales, #1 Shazam”. 

With his success as an artist, much of Bo's recent attention has gone to his songwriting. Together with frequent collabortaors Chaz Toney, DJ Irey and Juan Rios, Bo has worked on projects with Wash House Music, Common Kings, Pia Mia, Finn Gruva, Canaan Ene, Tenelle, Eli-Mac and The March to name a few. 

Bo's hero and biggest influencer is his Dad, who is an accomplished musician and renowned in his own right. Other influences are Bob Marley, Max Martin, Bruno Mars, Craig 
David, Justin Kawika Young and Ne-Yo.
