Bonnie Nichols - I've Got Something To Say
From Jack Lowe

Bottom Line:
Bonnie Nichols is one of those country performers who writes about the life that she has lived. And she shares that life, both good and bad, in the lyrics of her songs. From religion to relationships to kids to death, she covers it all in her latest release. It's a more traditional sounding CD that is all about God, family and country. This is what country music is all about.

Who is Bonnie Nichols?
Bonnie Nichols has been writing music since the 1980's. She began her songwriting career by being included in two Grammy-finalist children's projects out of Nashville. They were: "A Child's Gift Of Lullabies" and "Snuggle Up: A Gift of Songs for Sweet Dreams." She also won the first Alaska Public Radio Song of the Year contest in 1997 for her song, "She Don't Hear the Thunder" describing a woman who found her way through a relationship filled with domestic violence. She is also the recipient of a Wolf Trap Silver Medallion Award for a children's project, "Hunk-Ta-Bunk-Ta-Bed." Bonnie has also been honored by the State of Alaska as a First Lady's Volunteer of the Year. She lives in Soldotna, Alaska which is on the Kenai Peninsula. It is 150 miles South West of Anchorage. When Bonnie's not writing and performing, she works as a hospital marketing and public relations director.

Bio

As a grammy-finalist writer on two children's albums, I wanted to try my hand at adult music. I had just finished a two month writing spree where I wrote all the music for a gospel-based play set in Nashville and somehow that just primed the pump to write more. It was then that I decided that I really had something significant to share with the world and I knew I needed to record this CD and send my messages of hope, and love out there and see what would happen.

My experience with loss helped me write "New Beginning" a song that honors my late husband and highlights the amazing power and experience with organ/tissue donation;

"Grace", which was written months after the 2004 Tsunami diaster and focuses on true stories that share glimpses of hope;

"Red White and Blue" a love song to our troops that was inspired by a young service woman in my church who was getting sent back to Iraq; and

"Turn the Quiet Up", that speaks to our need to slow down and reconnect with those we love.

When not performing, I work as a Public Relations Director for Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna, Alaska.

I'm very happliy married and have two children and four beautiful grandchildren.
