A self-described "roaming blues poet," Ray Bonneville has been on the road for most of his life. Born in Canada and raised in the U.S., the blues musician imbues his songs with strong storytelling, while his percussive guitar style produces an earthy, almost primitive, sound. In 1993, Bonneville recorded his first album, On the Main. He won a Juno for his third release, Gust of Wind, in 1999. Along the way, the musical nomad has opened for or played with blues legends B.B. King, J.J. Cale and Robert Cray. In 2008, Bonneville released his sixth album, Goin' by Feel. Bad Man's Blood followed three years later.
