Ray Bonneville didn’t write his first song until his early 40s,
some 20 years after he started performing. But with a style
that sometimes draws comparisons to JJ Cale and Daniel
Lanois, this blues-influenced, New Orleans-inspired “song
and groove man,” as he’s been so aptly described, luckily
found his rightful calling.

On his fourth Red House Records album, Easy Gone,
Bonneville delivers 10 reasons why patience pays off.
In each, his guitarwork shimmers like stars emerging at
dusk. His voice carries the rich, natural timbre of time,
though underneath that pearl-like smoothness, one hears
its gritty core. His harmonica rhythms add even more
texture to his bluesy sound, and his lyrics balance
thoughtful observation, impassioned emotion and the
restless soul of a wanderer.

Produced by Bonneville and Justin Douglas, Easy Gone
takes listeners to some of the dark spaces and exotic places
Bonneville has gone on his own travels. Born in Quebec,
his family moved to Boston when he was 12. He served a
year in Vietnam as a Marine, earned a pilot’s license in
Colorado, then moved to Alaska, then Seattle, and Paris
and New Orleans. But it took a close call while piloting a
seaplane across the Canadian wilderness to make him
decide it was time to get busy writing songs.

He’s since earned many accolades, including a Juno Award
for his 1999 album, Gust of Wind. His post-Katrina ode,
“I Am the Big Easy,” earned the International Folk Alliance’s
2009 Song of the Year Award, and in 2012, Bonneville won
the solo/duet category in the Blues Foundation’s
International Blues Challenge. He has guested on albums
by Mary Gauthier, Gurf Morlix, Eliza Gilkyson, Ray Wylie
Hubbard and other prominent artists, and shared songwriting
credits with Tim O’Brien, Phil Roy and Morlix, among others.
Slaid Cleaves placed Bonneville’s “Run Jolee Run” on his
lauded 2009 album, Everything You Love Will Be Taken Away.

An Austin resident since 2006, Bonneville still puts the
rhythms and soul of New Orleans into much of his music.
His songs carry a groove and momentum that’s uniquely
his — and will always be a part of him, no matter where
he roams.
