If you have been wondering where we have been this may explain a few things…..
Finally I have finished recording my first CD after 15 years or performing.
Bonnie Lee Galea
Since I Fell For You
CD PRESS RELEASE
Bonnie Lee Galea, born in Adelaide with Mediterranean Roots from the little Isle of Malta, is a singer, songwriter & has managed her own bands since 1999.
She left Adelaide in 1991 as a Croupier to discover the world & herself not returning until 2010 as a Professional Vocalist.
Who would have guessed it would be here that she records her first CD….
With so many influences in her music she selects to perform based upon the cheeky lyrics, messages and experiences in life they portray.
”My song choices are always based on which songs move me, because I believe, if I feel them & they move me, then I think my audience will also feel them & be moved by them too. I love all those quirky, cheeky lyrics which make up a lot of my songs at our gigs”
This Cd’s songs were coincidentally chosen and found to mimic her own journey in life so far. Torch songs some would say sung by Bonnie but chosen from versions by some of the most incredible female vocalists over the years, such as Billie Holiday, Blossom Dearie, Nina Simone, Dinah Washington & Big Mama Thornton whom Bonnie shares an exact birthday with, but 40 years apart. She also has some contemporary jazz favourites on the CD with Latin & Mediterranean Flavour from Melody Gardot & also a woman called Rita and a modern song in Latin Jazz feel.
This Cd wouldn’t have been possible without the musicians she has met over the years, who took the time to believe in her & in turn helped her believe in herself, since discovering her voice in 1999 at the age of 33.
You will find Bonnie performing around Adelaide & interstate under her own name
