…but you don’t have to.
Thanks for following! You'll get any future updates.
My name is Bonnie Whitmore. I refer to myself as a career singer/songwriter/musician. My stock in trade is music, but I occasionally work as a professional organizer, nanny (both adults and children), and bake. I love doing all of these things and, combined, they give me the ability to make a living. Music, however, is my one true love. It is what feeds my soul and fills my heart. Which leads me to why I’m choosing to partner with PledgeMusic.
I’ve spent the past three years since my last release coming to an agreement with myself: for me, my journey is about growing as an artist and having the freedom to create without restriction. By pre-ordering this album, you are allowing me to continue to create honestly and independently. Your support will allow me to collaborate with a team of artists that I love and respect. By pre-ordering the album, you will receive the product of that love. I want this project to go beyond just picking ten songs and recording them. It will tell a story. It will be an honest representation of me, scars and all. By pledging, you are making this record happen.
But WAIT!! There is also a door prize for Pledging! With the purchase of any exclusive reward, you will automatically receive the digital download of my conceptual album, Coytoes “Life and After Life” For this record, I collaborated with Juicy The Emissary and Steve Christensen. It will only be released digitally, and with the help of this campaign, on vinyl. Side A (“Life) is the bare bones: me and a guitar. Side B (“After Life”) is Juicy’s electronic R&B interpretation of the melody of the songs on side A. The digital download will be available immediately after we reach our goal. You can also pre-order the vinyl of Coyotes “Life and After Life” here or choose another exciting exclusive! As a Pledger, you will receive a digital copy of the new record before anyone else has the chance to hear it! That means two records people!!!
This new record is going to rock harder than ever before. There will be fuzz. There will be shredding. There will be full tilt vocal and bass prowess! I am not holding back for this one. I have asked my friends Scott Davis (Band of Heathens, Hayes Carll), Craig Bagby (Sherman, Colin Herring), Jared Hall (Velvet Underground, Colin Gilmore), and Britton Beisehernz (Monahans) to team produce this record with me. We will be working at Ramble Creek in Austin, TX. I’ve asked the amazingly talented photographer/videographer Curtis Wayne Millard to help document this project. One of my favorite artists, Vanessa Jean Speckman, is helping hone the visual message of this record. It is going to sound and look amazing. More importantly, it will stand for something. I want these songs to start a dialogue about issues that are close to my heart. I want it to push boundaries. I’m letting my inner feminist out, y’all! For this reason, I am also choosing to partner with Planned Parenthood. A percentage of all funds raised after the goal will be donated to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood has provided me the means to manage my health (well woman exams, prescriptions). I don’t know of any other organization that has done more for women. Planned Parenthood gives women the opportunity to privately, affordably, and safely manage their health.
Lyrically, this will be the most vulnerable record I have ever made. It is without a doubt my most ambitious project to date. But, you will still find yourself singing along to all the words! I’m so excited to be partnering with you to make this record. Thank you for your support.
Finally! Here’s both the new album and Coyotes digital downloads available to you, the faithful, generous pledgers before anyone else can get it anywhere. I’ll be posting updates and exclusive video/pic from the studio! Thank you for the supports! Yours, B

Own a copy of my unreleased concept album Coyotes the way it was intended to be released: on vinyl. Side A (Life) is the bare bones. Just me and a guitar.
