Listen now to Bonnie's haunting new song "As I Lay Me Down" from her album "Catch Her If You Can"
Inspired by the music of Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Van Morrison, Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Bob Marley, Patti Smith and The Ramones, Bonnie Barnard is an award-winning Texas singer-songwriter who began singing, playing guitar and harmonica and writing songs at the age of eight. Combining both poetic and masterful songwriting with a beautiful and haunting voice, Bonnie's songs are filled with the passionate tales of a singer-songwriter blessed with a gift for storytelling, an amazing voice and a love of the musical folklore of her heroes. Bonnie's stirring and award-winning original song "Dead Town" from her debut album 10,000 Fortunes is the chilling tale of racism seen through the eyes of a young girl. "A Girl's Gotta Do" another one of Bonnie's original songs from her 10,00 Fortunes album is featured on the soundtrack of the cult movie classic Whore a film by legendary movie director Ken Russell.
"I first heard Bonnie Barnard’s music in 2002 when I received her CD These Reasons at my office. At the time, as a music publisher, I was receiving dozens of CDs per day. Her music stood out, captured me and rapidly became one of my daily choices for recreational listening. Her new CD Catch Her If You Can picks up where the first left off. I waited anxiously for more Bonnie music and was righteously rewarded. Her songwriting is superb. Her music is in the Americana/country vein and her voice stands alone in the world of copy-cat music. Her cover of "Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around" far surpasses the original as did her cover of "Heart of Gold" from These Reasons. If you like great American music, you will love Bonnie’s songs. I do, and I am very particular!"
