Bonnie Bishop grew up in suburban Houston, Texas, far from the honky tonks and hay rides of country music, and raised on the soulful melodies of Aretha Franklin and the likes of Motown. Now with years of musical experience under her belt, a more finely-tuned focus, and a new CD on the shelves, this young singer is poised to make a huge impact on the hearts of music lovers in Texas and beyond.
Though having just been in the music scene for a short time, Bonnie has shared stages with many established artists such as Radney Foster, Kevin Fowler, Bruce Robison, and Lyle Lovett, and has played numerous well-known venues and festivals. Recently called an 'exciting and energetic group to watch' by the Bryan Eagle, Bonnie's band consists of six players, including electric and acoustic guitars, mandolin, violin, and three part harmonies, and ranges in style from bluesy rock to Americana and country. The band reflects the versatility of its lead singer's diverse songwriting and expansive vocal range, which makes Bonnie's music unique to the Texas music scene and appealing to a wide demographic of listeners.
