Crafting Cable Boy

In Conversation With Semilore Olusa of Cable Boy written by Sarah CK All Rights Reserved © Void Magazine Sarah CK

Meet Semilore Olusa, known as Semi, the lead vocalist of ‘Cable Boy’. Drawing inspiration from the eclectic mix of sounds that filled his childhood, Semi found solace and motivation in the melodies his mother played on the morning school run. From 80s RnB to Nigerian gospel music, these early influences laid the foundation for his vision.

For Semi it’s the act of creation itself that pushes him forward, the ability to transform emotions into melodies, and thoughts into lyrics. “I make music because I like to create,” Semi explains. “It’s the thing that I’m best at. I genuinely love the process of creating a song out of nothing.”

With this driving force behind him, Semi embarked on a musical journey that led him to form Cable Boy, a band fueled by a shared passion for experimentation and expression. Together with friends and fellow musicians Liam, Niall, Oisin, Cornielle, and Jason, Cable Boy emerged as a force to be reckoned with in the Dublin music scene.

“We’re in the process of recording our second EP, which should come out this year,” Semi reveals. “And our single ‘Smoke and The Light’ will be out on March 29th!”As Cable Boy continues to captivate audiences with their infectious melodies and heartfelt lyrics, Semi remains grounded in his dedication to the craft. For him, music is more than just a career,it’s a calling, a compulsion to create that drives him forward, one song at a time.

For those eager to experience the magic of Cable Boy, their music is available on all major streaming platforms, and those interested can connect with them on Instagram (@cableboyband) for the latest updates and behind-the-scenes glimpses into their creative process.
