Bonnie Bishop

This week, Z. speaks with Bonnie Bishop – the fierce singer/songwriter raised in Texas and Mississippi with a powerhouse voice shaped by decades of singing in smoky bars, cutting confessional Americana gems that have won her a Grammy for her songwriting, and gained her a growing legion of fans nationwide.
Like her hero Bonnie Raitt, sometimes it takes an artist six records into her late thirties for anyone to take notice. And sometimes it takes a painful divorce to create a song that would be recorded by Bonnie Raitt and help Bonnie Bishop win the Grammy. No, Bishop’s life didn’t change overnight – reality is usually much more sobering than the fantasy of winning big in music. But, Bonnie knows she is winning now. Things are really happening – people respect her and the road is moving – and fast. And sometimes that’s the scariest thing of all.
