The Boy Least Likely To are an English twee pop/independent rock duo, comprised of composer/multi-instrumentalist Pete Hobbs and lyricist/singer Jof Owen.
Owen and Hobbs both grew up in the same small village, Wendover, in Buckinghamshire. They met in school and started writing songs together, eventually forming a number of different bands that were not successful. Only when they began recording some of their own songs together did things begin to work out for them as a band.
The group created the independent label Too Young To Die as a means to release their music. Their first release was the 7" single "Paper Cuts" in 2004. Their debut album The Best Party Ever was released in the UK in the summer of 2005. The album was released in the United States in late Spring 2006, following their United States tour opening for James Blunt.
