A career musician with a lifelong passion for composition and production. Solo or with a band, her rhythms are found irresistible to many cultures and many ages.

She has traveled the world sharing her love of music as a headliner, session player and producer.

Her 'world/reggae' CD “The Best Of All Possible Worlds” on Gekko Rekkords (USA), contains original music and a Grateful Dead cover. The recording brought much attention in the West Indies, home, and abroad ushering a release of the single "I Don't Care" through Sonic Sounds (Kingston, JA). Jamaica’s XNews credited the writing to resemble the work of the late Bob Marley. (read more)

Bonnie Bowers music

Like HARRY BELAFONTE with Calypso; MICHAEL FRANKS with Bossa Nova or WILLIE NELSON with country music, Bowers has taken the road less traveled carving out a unique style.

“She is brilliant! She has such depth and range with exciting, powerful vocal arrangements, kind of orchestral, she remakes songs in her own image.”-Jack Miller

“Bonnie’s voice captures the unique contradiction of vulnerable sensitivity intertwined with just the right amount of street-wise savvy”
-Downtown Magazine, NYC
