Regina Bonelli
New York - United States

Brooklyn born, New York Blues Hall Of Famer Regina Bonelli is stepping forward to claim her rightful place amongst today's contemporary "Soul-Blues" divas on her new album “Love Letter" released on True Groove Records.

“Love Letter" is a blues meets R&B tsunami of sound from the first single “Don't You Put Your Hands On Me,”(already considered a #metoo anthem), the melancholy "Al Green meets Etta James" groove of "A Little Rain Must Fall,"through the updated and socially relevant stomp of her cover of The Rolling Stones classic "Paint It Black,"as well as her signature "Cold Blooded" blues on the lushly orchestrated, stunning title track.

An electrifying performer (she received a standing ovation at this year's Gloucester Blues Festival, where she premiered the songs from "Love Letter," backed by her A-List band The True Groove All-Stars), Regina has shared the stage with music icons such as Bobby Rush, Paul Simon, Martha Reeves, the Temptations, Blues Traveler, Popa Chubby, and Ronnie Earl, to name but a few.

Always a lover of blues and soul music, Regina was influenced at an early age by Big Momma Thornton, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee, Howlin’ Wolf and Ann Peebles. She began to write blues tunes inspired by her own life and the world around her.

In regards to her upcoming release “Love Letter," Ms. Bonelli states: "This collection of songs represent empowerment and healing in a world so sorely in need of both. These are tense and trying times we live in today, and I hope that the messages in these songs reach into the souls of the listeners. I truly believe that this is what music can, and should do – especially the Blues"
