Michael James Kirkland
American R&B singer, born 1949, Yazoo City, Mississippi. After he moved to Los Angeles in mid 50s, along with their brothers: Robert (Bob Kirkland) and Walter; and his career in the doo-wop group Mike & The Censations, he simplified his name to 'Bo' for the one Claridge album, who he's half of the duo Bo Kirkland & Ruth Davis. The label boss Frank Slay combined the two singers talents for this album. The first single release under his new moniker, “Grandfather Clock" reached #80 on the R&B charts in 1975.
