About We Were Pirates

We Were Pirates is the musical brainchild of Mike Boggs, a multi-instrumentalist who writes and records songs in his home studio in the DC area. Boggs has released three albums, an EP, and a film score for ‘Dear Mr. Watterson.’ Boggs’ 2009 debut LP, Cutting Ties, features a version of ‘The Three of Us,’ a cover song that Boggs recorded which was featured on the public radio show, This American Life. As a result, Chicago Tribune rock critic and co-host of Sound Opinions, Greg Kot, heard We Were Pirates’ version of the song and described it thusly: ‘Pure pop. This should be the next Fountains of Wayne single; genius.’ That year, We Were Pirates reached #41 on the CMJ Top 200. Wired magazine featured We Were Pirates in their March 2012 issue following the release of the second album, Change. The feature said, “You heard this band’s public radio-friendly pop on This American Life and you heard its tracks on MTV’s: The Real World: DC. So don’t miss ‘Better Off Without You’ from the new album. Catchy synths will have your crew dancing a jig.” In 2013, Boggs wrote and recorded an original film score for ‘Dear Mr. Watterson.’ The film is a documentary about the impact of the comic strip, Calvin & Hobbes. This American Life featured We Were Pirates again, when they played ‘A Strange Experience’ from the film score on Episode 512. In 2014, We Were Pirates performed songs from ‘Dear Mr. Watterson’ live at screenings of the film in Baltimore and DC. 2016’s Matter finds Boggs exploring a mellow, electronic aesthetic. A return to simple, melodic songs. Existential questions are asked about life, loss, and love. Kate Rears Burgman again contributed cello and bass on some songs. TW Walsh mastered the album. www.wewerepiratesmusic.com // www.twitter.com/wwpmusic // www.soundcloud.com/wewerepirates //
