The Vanguard presents
Bonniesongs - 'Frank' single launch
Come celebrate the release of ‘Frank’, the new single from art-folk virtuoso Bonniesongs' upcoming album 'Energetic Mind' with special guests Ollie Thorpe & Elizabeth Fader.
Born and raised in Ireland, Bonniesongs is the musical moniker of Dublin/Wicklow native Bonnie Stewart. “They’re basically the same place,” laughs Stewart, as she explains her origins, “but Ireland is small, so to Dubliners I'm from Wicklow, and to Wicklow folk I'm from Dublin...” Like many young artists with one eye on the wider world, a longing for a change of scenery saw her move halfway across the world to Sydney, Australia, almost seven years ago, when Stewart was in her early twenties.
Her own music has previously been likened to some weighty names, including Cat Power, Joanna Newsom, and Bjork, but Stewart’s personal influences are as wide-ranging as her songwriting, and she excitedly reels off a hugely diverse list that encompasses Juana Molina, Buke and Gase, Tuneyards, Jose Gonzalez, Sufjan Stephens, Nirvana, This Is The Kit, Aldous Harding, Julien Baker and Tiny Ruins. “I think everything you love and listen to is in there as an influence,” she says, “including so many of my talented musician friends. Growing up, my musical hero was Dave Grohl, but then, as I studied jazz, people like New York-based drummer/composer Jim Black and Melbourne composer/pianist Andrea Keller became more important to me.”
This is an 18+ event.
