Bonnie Love

Curiosity got me here. I noticed something when I was preparing the Gabriella Cohen post a few days ago, that Gabriella has a sister Bonnie Love who Gabriella had produced some songs for an EP.

So I had to have a listen, I am so glad I did. Bonnie Love wow! I am in love with her voice. It hits you to the bone. So hard and soft, so rough and smooth, this young lady is a true old soul. In a word amazing.

Bonnie Love is from Melbourne, as was her sister.

I read a wonderful quote about her that I want to share.
“An explosive Molotov cocktail of harlot and song from a true chanteuse who was born for the stage.” Felicity Black, Dirty Power Studios

No videos so far, but you are in for an aural treat.
I’ll show you “Songs of love and living”.
A collection of songs written around USA & Melbourne town 2015/16.
Recorded by her sister, Gabriella Cohen in a collection of lovely lounge rooms dotted around the country.

First up this achingly beautiful walking blues song, it has everything, beautiful guitar and that totally ethereal voice that takes you to places you know and some you don’t. Oh oh oh I think I’m in love. I’m transfixed by her voice.

from Songs For The Living, released January 25, 2017

Produced By Gabriella Cohen

A slight acoustic guitar and then the chill-inspiring voice of Bonnie. This song is a definite goose bump provider. The warmth of Norah Jones, the depths of anguish of Billy Holiday, and above all the superb talent of Bonnie Love. I tell you this EP can change your life. Oh I’ll carry you home, for sure.

Take me back to the twenties in some speak easy, the bathtub gin is flowing and there on a small stage is the singer. Oh Bonnie Love is so much into that genre. This is a beautiful, beautiful piece. You want it to never end, and that mouth trombone is a nice touch.

“I think I’m going a little crazy” she sings, and I know I’m going crazy over her. Such an authentic jazz/blues vocalist. People I implore you, you have to make this young lady a mega star. Once you hear all of this EP you won’t be able to stop playing it.

Finally today, and I hate to finish this but we’ve run out of songs, a very different take on a love song. Bringing out the tender side of Bonnie, but the blues and jazz is still there.
Awesome, amazing, brilliant Bonnie Love is a tour de force.
