Why Bonnie started life as the bedroom recording project of Blair Howerton. The group has grown into a quartet comprised of Kendall Powell, Sam Houdek, and Chance Williams. They’ve released their first two EPs, In Water and Nightgown, via Sports Day Records. Why Bonnie is currently gearing up for a much anticipated release in 2020, so keep your eyes and ears peeled!

“Musically, it’s a powerful mix of soaring shoegaze guitars and heartbreaking bedroom-pop; atop a steady, driving drum beat, guitars soar skywards as Blair’s stunning, natural vocals…What really shines about this [release] is just how honest it feels; the grief, the loss, the pain, they’re written over every single note, and no matter how many times we’ve listened to it this week, we still can’t stop the goosebumps forming every single time: it’s a very, very special record.” -Alex Dingley – For the Rabbits

Over the last decade Steve Marino has recorded multiple solo albums (as Moor Hound), been in countless bands, and toured the country consistently, but his newest full-length, Fluff, is the first collection of songs he's released in his own name. In that sense it's his "debut" album. One might expect such a transition, from the artifice of a band name to the intimacy of one's given name, to be born of some newfound, inward focus. It makes sense; it's a story of an artist going back to basics, getting real. It's also not what happened.
