Bonnie Raitt has been successfully operating in the music industry for 50 years. And just like wine, with age, it gets better and better. Just look at how it moves on stage. A small character with a well-worn Loss, gracefully named “Brownie”, can make a real fire.
Although she grew up on a diet consisting of Jack Daniels and music created by Mississippi Fred McDowell, her work was not limited only to the blues. Ballads like “I Can not Make You Love Me” is still an inseparable element of Bonnie’s concerts.
Her latest album Slipstream, released in 2012, was the first album that appeared after 7 years of publishing break. We did not have to wait so long for the next album. This year, the Dig In Deep album was released: a magical mix of rock, R & B, blues and characteristic Bonnie-style guitar slides. Goose skin guaranteed!
Bonnie Raitt’s “Gypsy In Me” from her new album DIG IN DEEP available from Redwing Records.
