With a greasy guitar style, horn-like harmonica, smoky vocals and pulsing foot percussion, Ray Bonneville is a hard driving, blues-dipped, song and groove man writing about people on the fringe of society. Master of the slow burn, the gentle funk and the infectious rhythm, the well-traveled, blues-influenced, New Orleans-inspired Austinite takes listeners to some dark and exotic places, giving voice to the hardscrabble folks dwelling in those tuneful songs. He’s won a Juno Award for Best Blues Album (Gust of Wind), the International Blue Challenge (representing the Ozarks Blues Society) and his song “I Am the Big Easy” won the International Folk Alliance’s 2009 Song of the Year.
