05/08/2014 by Jen Taylor

Dave Hosking is just so damn likeable. He’s definitely charismatic as frontman of Boy and Bear, but he’s also just a great guy to talk to; it would seem that all this fame hasn’t gone to his head. Not to mention he also has a very infectious laugh. You’re in the middle of a massive world tour with sell-out shows, it must all be mind blowing for you how far you’ve come!
