Roy Wood is an English singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He was particularly successful in the 60s and 70s as member and co-founder of The Move, Electric Light Orchestra and Wizzard. As a songwriter, he contributed a number of hits to the repertoire of these bands.

The BBC has described Wood as being "responsible for some of the most memorable sounds of the Seventies" and "credited as playing a major role in the Glam Rock, Psychedelic and Prog Rock movements". In 2008, Wood was awarded an honorary doctorate for his contribution to rock and pop by the University of Derby. In 2015, his long and eclectic career was recognized with the "Outer Limits" award at the Progressive Music Awards in London. Wood will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2017 as a member of Electric Light Orchestra.

Boulders is the first solo album by Roy Wood. Apart from harmonium on track one played by John Kurlander, all the instruments (including guitars, cello, saxophones, recorders) and voices were recorded by Wood, who also wrote, arranged, and produced the entire album, and did a self-portrait for the front cover. Originally issued on Harvest, the album peaked at No. 15 in the UK Albums Chart.

Two singles were taken from the album, "When Gran'ma Plays the Banjo" and "Dear Elaine". The latter reached No. 18 in the UK Singles Chart.
