Boxful of Trouble
Produced by Austin's well-respected guitarist/songwriter 'Scrappy' Jud Newcomb, Boxful of Trouble provides the listener with a variety of musical styles in nine original songs introducing Bonny Holmes, Austin singer/songwriter. There was never a time when music was not part of Bonny's life, and this is her first stab at the independent Americana record business. Starting out as a six year old who actually liked practicing the piano, Ms. Holmes grew to teen folkie and 20-something R & B singer/pianist in hometown Louisville, Ky. Progressing to 30-something New York City country singer, and finally, to Austin singer/songwriter, Bonny currently appears regularly on stage with her own 'Bonny Combo', including R.G. Stark and Mr. Bill Black. Producer/guitarist Jud Newcomb, drummer Dana Myzer, and bassist Michael 'Cornbread' Traylor make up the studio band, augmented by keyboard/accordion whiz Chip Dolan, trumpet maestro Oliver Steck, singers Walter Tragert and John Stark, guitarist Eric Hisaw, with Rick Smith on mandolin and a collective of singers known as Uberwench providing the angel choir. Check out a unique collection of songs well worth taking home.
