Critically acclaimed Canadian artist Haley Bonar is currently touring her latest record, Impossible Dream, around the UK and will be making an intimate stop at the Cluny on Monday 3rd April.

Living a somewhat nomadic lifestyle, Haley was raised in South Dakota before relocating to St Paul, Minnesota and has also spent time writing and recording in Portland, Oregon. This willingness to uproot and evolve has also been showcased in her musical career to date, Impossible Dream being her 7th solo record and arguably most accomplished, switching from folk to indie rock with ease.

BBC Radio 6 Music A-Listed its two singles; the Mazzy Star influenced Kismet Kill and the catchy synth-led, Stupid Face.  Perhaps channelling the magic in the waters of the Minnesotan lakes that have inspired the likes of Westerberg, Dylan and Mould, Haley Bonar has grown into a confident and essential performer and it was high praise indeed when Mojo Magazine described Impossible Dream as “the fine and discerningly lean album (Haley) has long threatened to make.”

In addition to her evening show at the Cluny, Haley will be putting on a free acoustic performance at Reflex CD Vinyl in Newcastle and signing copies of her record between 6-7pm so you get not one, but two chances to catch this talented musician.  In support at the Cluny show only will be Maryland’s Michael Nau, formerly of the band Cotton Jones, who released a new solo record, Some Twist, last summer.

Haley Bonar plays Cluny, Newcastle tonight.
