Ozan Boz is a Canadian musician, composer, arranger and record producer based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Boz is the producer of Minor Empire’s critically acclaimed, award-winning [1][2] album, Second Nature[3]. While CBC Radio and Toronto Sun music columnist Errol Nazareth noted that "the CD marks an important way forward for Turkish and world music, in general.", David Dacks of Exclaim! magazine calls their debut Second Nature "successfully dreamy" and says "the record will leave you wanting to see the band live.",[4] and TJ Nelson of World Music Central describes the album as "bold, expertly worked and voluptuous."[5]

His arrangements and productions have been referred to by critics as “brave”, “fresh”, “evocative” and “cinematic”[4][5]. The German publication, FolkWorld, in describing his work says: “Ozan Boz touches no world music soup, he creates a dynamic virtuosity and masters the balance between electronic and acoustic instruments”[6].

He is also known for his textural electric guitar style for which he quotes Norwegian guitarist Eivind Aarset as his main influence. Ozan was featured on Identities[7], Jazz FM's award-winning documentary series. He has been nominated for “World Music Producer” award by 2018 Independent Music Awards[8].
