Austin,TX-based Americana-rock group, Bonnie Whitmore and Her Band, drop “She’s a Hurricane” from their upcoming album, F*ck with Sad Girls, due out October 28th. Recorded at Austin’s Ramble Creek by Britton Beisenherz (The Swindle Boys, The Fox and the Bird, Matt Powell), the ten tracks tell a story and, in one way or another, boldly address the stigma placed on “imperfect” women. Listen here.
Bonnie Whitmore (bass/vocals) does not shy away from a difficult conversation and turns feminist frustration into rock this go-round with the release of her third album, F*ck With Sad Girls, follow up to Whitmore’s 2010 solo debut, Embers to Ashes, and 2013 sophomore record, There I Go Again. With an impressive career under her belt, Whitmore begin her journey in music with her family’s band, Daddy and the Divas, and was hired at 15 to play bass in local DFW bands. Her first band, The Brent Mitchell Band, launched her into further work with Susan Gibson, Shelley King, Mando Saenz, Justin Townes Earle, Hayes Carll, Colin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Aaron Lee Tasjan and Sunny Sweeney. Inspired by iconic songwriters and acts like Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitt, Fleetwood Mac, Roy Orbison and The Replacements, F*ck with Sad Girls incorporated a trio of talented, like-minded musicians: guitarist Scott Davis (Band of Heathens, Hayes Carll), drummer Craig Bagby (Sherman, Colin Herring) and keyboardist Jared Hall (Velvet Underground, Colin Gilmore). A successful PledgeMusic campaign fueled the recording ofF*ck With Sad Girls, as well as the complementary concept album dubbed Coyotes: Life and After Life, which is available exclusively to pledge supporters via digital download or vinyl.
