With the release of The Liberator, Carla Bonnell brings a new feel to a classic genre. Lush with mandolin, banjo, acoustic guitar, and addicting vocal melodies, The Liberator brings roots folk, and indie pop together in a very unique way. Though diverse in its way, the album is full and prominent with the fact that it never loses touch with the emotional platform great songs are built from.
Carla Bonnell has been playing guitar for years and shortly after writing songs as well. Coming from New Brunswick Canada, she grew up in a rich and vibrant music community and became a part of it naturally.
The song writer has played with the likes of many well known and local acts like Billy Dean ( Roy Orbison’s guitar player, Rudy Veltri ( Johnny Cashes Canadian steel player) and opened for Joan Kennedy all in less than the year that she's been into music full time.
She's been inducted in the Minto Country Music Wall of Fame in September 2014 in Minto New Brunswick, and was awarded April’s Akademia Music Award for Best Country Album/Singer Songwriter last month. She also made top 10 after entering the CBC Searchlight Contest in her region of Northern Ontario, and has already made #1 radio stations in both British Columbia, and Ontario.
The Last Train official video was released July 29 , 2015! Carla heads back into the studio to record her 3rd album in September. An expected release date is not yet set.
