From the venue:
Bonner Black, the classically trained ballerina turned singer/songwriter from Hot Rock, TN, began her life on stage at age 4. At seventeen, Black moved to Nashville to continue honing her craft and embarked on her first regional tour throughout the Southeast. During that time, Black participated in four lobbying trips with NSAI to Washington, DC to advocate for songwriters and copyright law reform. In 2016, she was awarded the Artist Entrepreneur Award by The Oxford Center of Entrepreneurs at The Times Center in New York City. With over 500 shows under her belt, she has opened for acts like The Bellamy Brothers, Charlie Daniels, and The Band Perry, and has been a regular at Nashville's most popular songwriter venues, The Bluebird Cafe and The Listening Room.
Today, her music showcases her Southern roots blended with catchy melodies and lyrics. As an independent artist, Black has amassed over 425k streams across all platforms while cultivating an enthusiastic and engaged fan base. Her Debut EP, Out Of Dreams, was released May 6th, 2022 and tells stories of lost love with sharp lyrics overlaying sweet melodies. “Light Me Up” landed on Spotify’s Today’s Singer-Songwriter playlist, was featured on People.com, and is her most streamed single to date. “Midnight Blue” brought about Black’s first Apple Music playlists with New In Singer-Songwriter and Breaking Singer/Songwriter.
