Mark Boulle and MB3 and Chris Soo play Bond Univer­sity’s ADCO Am­phithe­atre on Sun­day from 3-5.15pm. En­try is free. five al­bums un­der his belt, Mark Boulle is en­joy­ing tak­ing his time with No.6. ‘‘I’m in no rush,’’ the Gold Coast singer­song­writer says. ‘‘I’m wait­ing for it to ma­ture. I think it’s a trend now to take your time. Go­tye took five years. It might be ready this year or next. I want it to be some­thing nice and lis­ten­able.’’ A noted song­writer, singer, gui­tarist and pro­ducer, Boulle has self-pro­duced and in­de­pen­dently re­leased each al­bum so far. Along­side his band MB3, Boulle is set to play Live at Bond this week­end and will be the last act to grace the stage for the au­tumn sea­son. ‘‘I’m bring­ing along our vi­o­lin player, Elodie May­berry,’’ he says. ‘‘I haven’t played a gig with her in a while. Vi­o­lin adds a nice warmth. Dy­lan Mar­shall will be on bass and Andy Woollard on drums.’’ De­scrib­ing their mu­sic as a flavour­some blend of in­die, folk, pop and roots mu­sic, Boulle says he mostly sings songs about love. He says their live sets are ‘‘pretty loud and punchy’’. ‘‘There are a lot of melodic ideas – nice rootsy folk songs,’’ he says. ‘‘We have a bunch of new songs to share with the au­di­ence. Heaps of the songs we haven’t played live yet, so we are ex­cited to take them out of the stu­dio.’’ Bond stu­dent Chris Soo will sup­port Boulle at Live at Bond, kick­ing off the af­ter­noon with sun-soaked acous­tic in­die tunes. Live at Bond’s spring sea­son will launch on the last Sun­day in Septem­ber, giv­ing a va­ri­ety of tal­ented lo­cal acts a chance to take to the stage.

In­die, folk, pop, roots mu­si­cian Mark Boulle.
