Roots of Blues, Berries of Country and Nuggets of Rock n Roll mix it all up and call it Swamp a Billy.
Based in Calgary, Shona Rae and The Bona Fides have been playing roots based Rock n Roll since 2009.
Roots of Blues, Berries of Country, Nuggets of Rock n Roll seasoned with a dash of Punk – eclectic influences to be sure.
Shona Rae writes the words, Herb and Shona collaborate to create a colourful palette of sounds that reflects their decades long love of blues and roots music.
The raw, powerful vocals of Shona Rae are offset by Hound Dog Herb on guitar. Todd Maduke on bass and Rob Matthews on drums provide the rock solid rythm section.
Herb and Todd also play guitar in the Calgary based “Surf Rock” band, The Bigfoot Rocketship, which Todd founded in 2004.
