"a master of the slow burn, the gentle funk, the infectious rhythm." -OTTAWA CITIZEN Born in Quebec, raised in the states, Ray Bonneville is a JUNO Award winner poet of the demimonde who didn't write his first song until his early 40s with a style that draws comparisons to Daniel Lanois. Bonneville has shared the stage with blues heavyweights like BB King, Muddy Waters, JJ Cale, and Robert Cray, and has performed on the stages of South by Southwest and Folk Alliance. He served a year in Vietnam as a Marine, Struggled and overcame drug addiction, lived in Alaska,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 - gritty, soulful guitar and harmonica playing. "an absolute master...one of the most skilled songwriters of that dark slow smoldering yet fiery blues/roots music" - FAME
