Bonne Finken (album release show)

7:00 PM
Award-winning Pop Artist, Rock Vocalist, Producer, Creative Director, Songwriter and Composer Bonne Finken is best explained as an example of pure artistic holdfast.

Electing to skip the popular paths often pursued in today's musical landscape, Bonne bypassed offers from studios and pop producers set on commercially molding her image and sound. Instead, Finken spent the better part of a decade learning from a few trusted mentors how to produce and compose music on her own, with one constant goal in mind: Present the sounds in her head.

Finken's first success with this was through the release of her 2014 Independent Pop/Rock album Fairytales/LoveAffairs.

Garnering 100% positive reviews, the album stamped Finken as a "musical force to be reckoned with" (Vents Magazine) and "musical warrior" (24Our Magazine) amongst the art community and landed her a nomination for 'Album of the Year' by Indie Music Digest (2014).

On a local level, Finken changed the scope of the music scene, becoming the first independent artist to obtain regular rotation on a Top 40 radio station with her single "Step Back Baby". 

Spun into the role of budding indie gem, the effect of an on-the-cusp-of-mainsteam-success independent album sent Finken spinning through the most tumultuous years of her life.
Having been both a young mother and cancer survivor, Finken was unknowingly prepped to become a rare female leader in a male-dominated industry. Still, these years tested her tenacity and ability to keep a tight hold onto her first and constant goal.

To silence the noise, Finken chose to spend a year artistically isolated.  Moving to a tiny town in the the rolling hills of Tennessee in 2017, with only her studio equipment and clothes in tow, Finken committed to a soul searching project with fellow Iowan and rock producer Matt Sepanic (Stone Sour; Slipknot).  While living with Sepanic and his family in the mountains, and blocking outside influence, Finken has inarguably written her most uninhibited songs to date.  

Successfully combining the stories of recent life experiences with her trademark sound, Bonne Finken is now ready to present her 3rd full-length studio album Gauntlet.

"Packed with beauty, power and emotion" (Music Street Journal) Bonne’s songs have mesmerizing effect.  Honest pop songs sung by an elite rock vocalist. Modern synths and cinematic scores run fluid with choirs, layered melodies and apocalyptic drums creating a sound and emotional journey that Finken spent years learning to hone. The dedication has paid off, as Indie Artist Alliance calls Finken "a talented visionary deserving of far wider recognition than this review".

Gauntlet by Bonne Finken is set to release world-wide June 7th, 2019 on all digital platforms. Physical copies will be sold at both her live shows and via her website.
The release will be supported by a full U.S. tour with dates being released at and all social media outlets.

"Gauntlet" was produced & mixed by Matt Sepanic (Stone Sour; Slipknot) and recorded in Leipers Fork, TN.  Additional production and mixing by Bonne Finken, Jon Locker, Glenn Sawyer and Rich Veltrop (Macy Gray; Rage Against The Machine). 

Numerous songs written by Bonne Finken have been spun on both commercial and college radio. An Emmy® recipient for her original song and score for the documentary "FarmHer" Bonne's work has also been featured on various TV shows and commercials (i.e. MTV's The Real World & E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians).
