Regina Bonelli - Love letter 2018

Regina-BonelliRegina Bonelli - Love letter
Produced by Tomás Doncker & James Dellatacoma for True Groove.
True Groove Label Administration: Marla Mase

Brooklyn born, New York Blues Hall Of Famer Regina Bonelli is stepping forward to
claim her rightful place amongst today's contemporary soul-blues divas on her new
album Love Letter, released on True Groove Records.

Love Letter is a blues-meets-R&B tsunami from the first single “Don't You Put
Your Hands On Me,” and the melancholy Al-Green-meets-Etta-James groove of "A
Little Rain Must Fall," through the updated and socially relevant stomp of her cover
of The Rolling Stones classic "Paint It Black," as well as her signature cold-blooded
blues on the lushly orchestrated, stunning title track.
Regina began to write blues tunes inspired by her own life and the world around
her. She is an electrifying performer, and is receiving standing ovations, backed by
her A-list band The True Groove All-Stars. Regina has shared the stage with music
icons such as Bobby Rush, Paul Simon, Martha Reeves, The Temptations, Blues
Traveler, Popa Chubby, and Ronnie Earl, to name but a few.
"This collection of songs represents empowerment and healing in a world so
sorely in need of both,” Bonelli says. “These are trying times we live in today, and I
hope that the messages in these songs reach into the souls of the listeners. 
I truly believe that this is what music can do, especially the blues."
