Bonnie Bishop with special guest Anthony Peebles
Bonnie Bishop with special guest Anthony Peebles in concert Thursday September 22, 2022 at The Barn in Columbus, MS>
The first thing that registers about Bonnie Bishops stirring album The Walk is that the seasoned Grammy winner is no longer trying to outrun herself; she owns whatever has come her way, good wind or ill. Its an uplifting confessional that she dedicates to all who wander laying down searing, emotionally-charged variations to award-winning producer Steve Jordans (Robert Cray, John Mayer, Buddy Guy) powerhouse production. She does so in a voice that aches and arches and grabs and never lets go.
Blessed with an authentically resounding range, a blistering lyrical gift, and OK - she admits it - a couple of inherent vices that any God-fearing Americana/country/soul artist must wrestle with after years of bringing it live and in-color, Bishop has now broken free from the bust-boom mentality of Nashville to walk a line of her own making. The recipe may sound oversimplified, but its a frank, funny, ferocious, insightful Bonnie Bishop we encounter on this path; a recharged singer/songwriter full of grace. Her determination to put one foot in front of the other and find the road to reclamation shifted into overdrive when she left Nashville for her native Texas in 2017. Since then, shes never looked back. The Walk soars as her most honest effort to date. Its a groove-laden, lyrical lightning bolt from which the tonic of self-revelation pours forth on songs such as the grateful Every Happiness Under The Sun and the gut-wrenching I Dont Like To Be Alone. The albums euphoric closer, Song Dont Fail Me Now, is Bonnies most heartfelt testament to date that music absolutely can still heal the spirit.
A native of the northwest Florida panhandle, Anthony Peebles has the gift of an expansive range and tone which goes from pure and soothing to soaring and edgy.
In 2015, Anthony signed with First Note Entertainment, and spent the next year recording with Grammy-nominated producer Dave Brainard.
Having recently opened for multiple national artists, Anthony is an artist fast gaining followers across the south. He has had placements on ABCs Greys Anatomy as well as NBCs Council of Dads.
Free finger foods, soft drinks, beer, water and snacks will be available for our guests. A Donation Jar on the food table will go to benefit the Mississippi Spelling Bee.
