Bonnie Bishop is a singer and a Texan…and, yes, all that insinuates. Brassy, original, soulful, with a whole lot of attitude, her music and her personality are one in the same. But your stereotypical chick singer she is NOT. She sings with the confidence of a woman who understands that the power of her voice lies in her ability to make the audience want more, not want less. She wails effortlessly and with style, free from the shrillness of a woman who is straining to find her notes in the stratosphere, and then just as easily, she swoops down into the depths of her range with a softness that is rich and full of emotion. Bishop has garnered accolades from the press for her brand of bluesy country music. She is also one of the best songwriters to pedal her wares in Nashville ’s song mecca. She has rightfully earned the opportunity to write with such greats as Al Anderson and Mike Reid, among others in the Nashville music community. Bishop has also garnered songwriting “holds” from key major label recording artists in country music.
