World Cafe: Next – Haley Bonar’s New Dramatic Last War

May 19, 2014 - Our World Cafe: Next artist this week, 31 year old Canadian born Minnesotan Haley Bonar, is actually releasing her 5th solo album called Last War. But it is more than worthwhile to point out the leap in her work on this album. Discovered at 19 by Alan Sparhawk of Low at a Duluth open-mike, Bonar has always portrayed a darkness befitting her songs in her vocal performance. Last War has the backing to match on this album where the music's effect is immediate. Don't forget to download two songs on our podcast.
