ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
We Were Pirates is the musical brainchild of Mike Boggs. Writing and recording songs and compositions in his home studio, Boggs has released three albums as We Were Pirates.

Boggs spent the majority of 2012 writing and recording a film score for a documentary about the legacy and cultural impact of the comic strip Calvin & Hobbes called Dear Mr. Watterson. The film score contains 14 original, instrumental tracks, which range from upbeat and jangly to aggressive and anthemic.

The overall sound of the score is up-tempo, but it is not without its variations. Occasionally Mike Boggs of
We Were Pirates is not afraid to enhance a darker mood when some scenes address conflict, like Bill
Watterson’s reclusive persona or his disillusionment with cartoonists willing to overly commercialize their
art. Variation is also found with songs that are open and organic. Boggs’ score helps convey the idea of a
boy and his stuffed tiger on innocent journeys through the woods and adventures in world domination.

When asked about his role scoring the film, Mike Boggs of We Were Pirates, said: “Working on this
project was an amazing experience. Being able to draw inspiration from that sense when you’re a kid that
anything is possible changed the whole approach to songwriting for me. It was a challenge for sure...but
an incredibly fun challenge. Really, being able to create this score has been an honor on a lot of different
levels for me.”

Boggs has also enjoyed commercial success with his music playing on This American Life as well as airing on many television programs, including four songs featured on MTV’s ‘The Real World.’ We Were Pirates’ second full-length record, Change, showcases the mature and aggressive range of Boggs. We Were Pirates reached #41 on the CMJ Top 200 chart for the 2009 release, Cutting Ties, as well as being featured on NPR All Songs Considered: Second Stage, Wired Magazine and more.
