Raitt's 2012 Success Story

Bonnie Raitt is the surprise indie music success story of 2012. Launching her own label Redwing Records, Bonnie's first self-released album 'Slipstream' marked her biggest debut in two decades and is one of the top 5-selling independent albums of the year. She is also wrapping up an 80-date North American tour this month, which included more than 40 sold out shows and rave reviews: 

"Evokes the warm amber and light grain of crystallized honey... gripping." – New York Times
"Tight and polished" – Rolling Stone
"Masterful... Raitt really brought the crowd alive." – Hollywood Reporter
"Emotionally searing... impassioned, heart-wrenching vocal" – Variety 
"Exquisite... pulling the audience closer" – Chicago Tribune

Bonnie closes out the year with four national TV appearances, kicking off with an Austin City Limits concert on PBS on October 20. She then picks up the Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance on the Americana Music Awards on November 10 (PBS) and performs on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (NBC, Dec. 4) and The View (ABC, Dec. 5).
