Bonnie’s sweet ethereal vocals sail over the polyrhythmic backgrounds created between her mandolin, percussion and vocal loops. Her imaginative lyrics tell stories of treehouses, mice, birds, flying and video games.
Described as “dreamy experimental indie folk” and compared to artists such as Bjork and Joanna Newsom, Bonniesongs is creating a unique sound in the Sydney songwriting scene.

Art-folk virtuoso Bonniesongs, aka Bonnie Stewart, released her debut album Energetic Mind in September 2019 via Small Pond and Art As Catharsis.

The album has been proclaimed as one of the top albums of 2019 by Nialler 9, Gold Flake Paint, Low End Theorists, and many more. While previously described as “dreamy experimental indie folk”, Energetic Mind sees Bonniesongs exploring heavier and darker material while also retaining the charm of her earlier releases. Bonnie explains “I think the album is a balance of this ethereal soft sound but also a lot of darker grungy undertones have crept in”.

“Energetic Mind Live” EP is a selection of special live recordings featuring all the tracks from the album. Hearing how Bonniesongs adapts these songs in a live setting shows the depth of the material and the quality of musicianship in both solo and band formations.
