Bonnie Whitmore was born into music. By age 8 she was already playing bass in her father’s family-band (aptly named Daddy & the Divas) and has since emerged as an Austin-based songwriter with a golden voice and lyrics that can bite. Whitmore describes her songwriting as “an outlet, because it lets me relieve some of my darker emotions. Instead of going and maybe being a bit destructive, I just write songs instead.” Her often sly style of country-folk is piercing yet playful, and you can witness it for yourself below! Bonnie performed right here on KUTX on June 25th – and today she releases her latest album There I Go Again at the Cactus Cafe!. But before you head to the Cactus, check out some of her tunes below, recorded right here at KUTX.
