Bonnie Raitt is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist whose unique style blends blues, R&B, rock, and pop. After 20 years as a cult favorite, she broke through to the top in the early 90s with her Grammy Award-Winning albums Nick of Time and Luck of the Draw, which featured hits such as, "Something To Talk About" and "I Can't Make You Love Me."
With 10 Grammys under her belt and a long history of social activism, she tours regularly, incorporating many benefit concerts into her schedule. After a brief hiatus, Raitt toured throughout 2012 (and into 2013), recharged with a batch of great new songs to play in her live set along with the tried-and-true favorites that have treated her very loyal following to countless memorable shows through the years.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's 19th album, Slipstream, is daring, bluesy, and steeped with the inimitable slide guitar and soulful vocals that could only be hers. Released in 2012 and earning Raitt her 10th Grammy Award (for Best Americana Album), Slipstream was Raitt's first new album in seven years and the debut for her newly-minted label, Redwing Records.
