Willie Bovain
Willie (* 1944 in San Diego, CA) began playing the piano and organ at the age of 9. His first training was in his father's church, Reverend John Bovain. At the age of 21, he played in clubs with his trio and was very successful. Chuck Johnson, General Manager of Rhythm & Blues' first local radio station "XEGM" and his "Soul 95" program in San Diego, discovered Willie on his shows. In 1969, for Bovain's only album, Chuck Johnson co-wrote several songs with Willie, and composed the excellent "Love Walk", the album also included a beautiful version of "Hurt So Bad". Aside from his only album Willie recorded two singles.
