Three years ago this December will be the third anniversary of my first Haley Bonar show. Since then, she's released two albums...both I really dig. The latest, Big Star, was released this past June. I missed her when she was here around the album release...no worries because I can make up for it tonight when I head to Hiro Ballroom to check out Haley opening for another great musician, Andrew Bird.
As I mentioned, Haley Bonar's new album Big Star is coming out June 123rd. I can't wait. I've been digging the new tracks streaming on her myspace. There is just something about her voice I I love...her lyrics are way beyond her 24 years.
Turns out she is going to be in NYC for a couple shows around the release date. I can't make it to the Southpaw on the 7th but will most likely make the Knitting Factory show on June 5. You should check her out, it's definitely worth it...tix available here. Stream a few of the new tracks on her myspace page.
Fresh Bread has beenmy outlet numerous timesto state how much I dig Manitoban Haley Bonar. Her voice is very distinct - gorgeous. Her lyrics are just as unique - very deep (peep "Car Wreck" or "Us"). I loved her last album Lure the Fox and now am very excited to hear about her new album Big Star - out June 12 on Afternoon Records.
You can stream a few of the tracks on her homepage and myspace. Hopefully she'll come through the city on tour this summer.
