Bojeme a unique sound in Perth
CAREER woman and musician Bourby Webster is proof that successfully balancing work and other parts of life can be done. Ms Webster and her friends Jessica Gethin and Emma McCoy are classically trained string players (viola, violin and cello) who together with a four-piece rhythm section create the unique sounds of "Bojeme". When not playing a viola and wearing a stunning evening gown from designer Samantha Wynne, The Note has learned that Ms Webster wears a corporate suit as national marketing and development manager for Sustainability, an international consulting firm offering specialist training and auditing in the areas of health, safety, environment, emergency response and security. In town from Sydney last week, Ms Webster joined Bojeme for its WA launch at the Luxe Bar, Mt Lawley, in front of Perth VIPs. The week before, an audience of thousands saw the ladies on stage at Subi Oval for the Western Force v Waratah’s Super 14 game. Formed in early 2005, Bojeme is a melting pot of sounds originating from classical instruments paired expertly with keyboard, bass guitar, electric guitar and drums. The group’s repertoire is taken from such diverse genres as classical, pop, jazz, film, tango, salsa and rock. Music has always been a passion for Ms Webster and in the early days work became a way of financially supporting it. Ms Webster cites the overwhelming support and tolerance of her current employers and family as the reasons why she is able to work and play music in equal measure. "It’s been a challenge and a big learning experience but as long as I deliver on work targets and manage my time then I can continue to enjoy both," she said. Bojeme have released an independent CD and wish to tap into Australasia’s corporate and public events market, entertaining with its visually arresting female trio up-front and playing music of wide appeal. After seeing Bojeme on stage, The Note is confident the band will put all "wedding singers" to shame.
