It has been said that a women can fully make herself into a brilliant musician only when she learns to transform tragedy into art. In the case of Megan Bonnell this simply need not apply.
My fortunate encounter came by accident and one can argue that nothing in life happens by accident. The very first time I met Megan, there was a relaxed easy going manner about her that is natural, soulful, warm, comforting and her laughter instantly let’s you know that she is the real deal. Her lyrics composed come from a connection with nature that is magical.
Megan Bonnell’s song The Wind transports me to place on this earth that I guard with all the illusion that I can trow at you, Big Sur. Big Sur, California to me is my most treasured place, the surf, the waves, the trees and the untouched coastline where the tunes of Megan Bonnell can dance in your head while you await the wave on your board sitting as if grafted as one.
South Korea by Megan Bonnell is the perfect song to have dancing in your head if your surfing in Australia and are in the barrell in a space all of your own, hoping that there are no men in grey suits around, in harmony with nature like the singer songwriter herself.
More on Megan Bonnell after the Australian Grand Prix. This talented Canadian is currently working on her new album and will be performing at the famed El Mocombo and I will be returning to this historic landmark where I first met the band The Rolling Stones, to listen and watch Megan Bonnell live. Till then have a listen to Megan Bonnell.
