Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM Wednesday 15th July 2015

This week's radio show is available to listen on demand just click the Mixcloud link below.

Bonanza & Son on ResonanceFM interviewed Manitoba's most musical married couple Keri and Devin Latimer aka Leaf Rapids in situ at their gig at The Strongrooms back in May of this year.
The wildly isolated nature of Manitoba, Canada is a big influence on Leaf Rapids and their current LP 'Lucky Stars' with lyrical themes that explore the inner workings of people left too long inside log cabins in the dead of winter juxtaposed with the beautiful, explosion of Spring and its rejuvenating nature.



Recently signed to Black Hen Music, Leaf Rapids recorded in Nashville, TN with producer/musician Steve Dawson, whose accolades include
Juno’s, Western Canadian Music
Awards and Canadian Folk Music Awards but more importantly a reputation second to none on the Canadian Roots scene.


Plus we have brand new, upcoming and current releases from Mike Giacolino, Jason Isbell, Daniel Romano, Ed Dupas, Hip Hatchet and of course it wouldn't be Bonanza & Son without lots of old vinyl that we've picked up along the Americana highway that is the past week of Bonanza & Son's crate digging and record buying and selections from our record shelves at home including Buck Trent, Buddy Emmons with Suite Steel, Speedy West & Jimmy Bryant and Area Code 615 plus many more...

Almost an hour of brand NEW Daniel Romano songs...

Truly remarkable... There's almost an hour of brand new songs, presumably written on the recent boat trip on the way over to these shores... So amazingly prolific and refreshingly disregarding of PR concerns for the upcoming album.


Is there a new Daniel Romano documentary in the works? And if so are we in it..?

It would appear so!

Will it be filmed by Valentine Street Productions? And released by New West Records? ....hmmmmmmmm!

Postcard from Nashville...



Last year Bonanza & Son were proud to have booked a series of live shows for legend of Country & Rock 'N' Roll Mr Buzz Cason who wrote such classics as 'Everlasting Love' and 'Soldier Of Love' as well as working with Elvis Presley, Dolly Parton the list is endless.





For one of these shows we also booked London band Run Devil Run (UK) who instantly bonded with Buzz. One thing led to another and last week the band took Buzz up on his offer of a chance to record with him in Nashville Tenessee as well as playing a few choice gigs Stateside...



This fact alone makes 12 years of Bonanza & Son completely worthwhile... I'm so happy this all came together...

Daniel has just embarked on his second European & Scandinavian tour but will take time off from his busy schedule to play live on his favourite radio show as well as discussing his upcoming new album 'If I've Only One Time Askin'.
