Today is Haley Bonar, a rock / alt country songstress from South Dakota, USA. Her songs are light and playful but she sings with knowingness, longing and soul. Even in her most upbeat songs is a fragility which I think makes her very endearing.
Where will I have heard her before?
Well if you live in Minnesota you'll know that her album Lure the Fox won two Minnesota Music Awards and that she is very active in Minneapolis. Her songs have featured on the shows The United States of Tara and Teen Moms (an achievement I think...) and her collaboration with Andrew Bird 'Quiet Breathing' featured on the soundtrack to the film Sweet Land. More recently she performed at 2011's SXSW.
Featured Song: 'Anyway Rattlesnake'
Where can I hear more?
If you liked that then you're in for a treat! Click here for a free sampler of her album Golder (including a special non-album remix) and then if you like that go buy the rest of the album from iTunes where (for a change) you'll actually be making a £1.67 saving making it the cheapest place to buy the rest of the album!
What is her website?
Next week: Kyla la Grange!
