Haley Bonar's latest album, Big Star, was a watershed moment for herÃ¢"a record like a Cormac McCarthy short story: simple on the intake, but revealing universal truths with a powerful emotional impact as it sinks in. In the words of filmmaker Ali Selim (Sweet Land) "Her voice is an invitation to amazing places." Big Star is loosely themed around the struggle of wanting something that elicits both dislike and desire"whether it be fame, success, or love.
Bonar has toured with Andrew Bird, Hayden, Jennifer O'Connor, Mason Jennings, Mary Lou Lord, Richard Buckner, and Charlie ParrÃ¢"domestically and internationallyÃ¢"as well as shared stages with Neko Case, Pedro the Lion, the Arcade Fire, and Wanda Jackson.
