I'm Listening To


Pierre Bohemond

Easton, PA      

Pierre Bohémond began exploring the depths of his musical ability at the young age of twelve while living in Argenteuil, France. He would spend the better part of his day teaching himself the guitar while composing enchanting melodies that continue to echo throughout his compositions.

Early Years: Under the name Pierre Bohé, he started his music career in the ’70s as a rock musician, playing lead guitar in various original groups, composing and producing records. He studied songwriting with Albert Hague in NYC in 1978 & 79 (Albert Hague, Tony award-winning composer, best known for his role in the movie and television series ”Fame,” in which he played the white-bearded music teacher). Pierre Bohé was first published in 1979 as an Artist/co-producer on the Buddah records label in New York City with Tony Camillo as his producer and mentor (Tony Camillo is best known as the producer of Gladys Knight and the pips). Continued writing and producing records in the ’80s with New Jersey Artist “Michael Mauro” Sr. and Original Rock Band “Ony-O with Lead Singer/Keys “Iggy Markow” from the rock band Gandalf.

2014: With the advent of computer music, in 1997 he studied MIDI music production and digital studio techniques and successfully composed and publish a Ballet “Dreams Interrupted” in 2014 Choreographed by Trinette Singleton (Trinette began her professional career with New York’s Joffrey Ballet, currently Artistic Director at Repertory Dance Theater in Allentown, PA). “Dreams Interrupted” was performed by American Repertory Ballet of Princeton, NJ. On March 21, 2014, American Repertory Ballet performed the world premiere of Pierre’s ballet composition “Dreams Interrupted”.
