CANCELLED: Bonnie Bishop in the Next Studio 89
WE APOLOGIZE, BUT DUE TO FAMILY ISSUES, BONNIE BISHOP HAS BEEN FORCED TO CANCEL TONIGHT'S PERFORMANCE AT STUDIO 89.
Bonnie Bishop is a Nashville artist and relatively new favorite of WNKU. She’s described as “three parts Gavin Degraw, Janis Joplin and Bonnie Raitt, with a splash of Grace Potter and a shot of Robert Earl Keen.” She recently co-wrote Raitt’s “Not Cause I Wanted To,” which was named the top song of 2012 by the New York Times’ music critic, Jon Pareles.

Bonnie’s affecting lyrics and musical prowess underscore her ability to encourage and validate the listener. Her stories of survival and redemption, often weighted subject matter, find their way into empowering and anthemic songs fit for anyone’s personal theme song playlist.
“My music evolved because I fundamentally changed,” said Bonnie. “My experiences in the last few years, however painful, taught me humility and personal accountability. I learned how strong my faith in God was when I actually had to rely on it, not just profess it. I learned the art of gratitude and forgiving myself. Most everyone needs to know all of this is possible.”
Her story is fully told in the new material releasing this fall. Whether she’s performing an intimate, one-woman show or rocking out with a full band, Bonnie’s music will shake your core, lift you up and bring you back around to the bright side.
Bonnie frequently writes with the most lauded songwriters in Nashville and has several cuts with major recording artists. Her albums include Things I Know (2009), Live at Magnolia Avenue Saloon (2006), Soft to the Touch (2005) and Long Way Home (2004).
When she’s not touring, Bonnie lives in Nashville. Her creativity also comes to life in the kitchen where she’s perfecting a style of healthy cuisine as unique as her music. Bonnie’s house family is incredibly well fed and entertained.
