The Magnolia is one of the first trees to bloom in the Spring. Breathtakingly beautiful in form and shape and fragrance, but also extremely tough, this ancient species is certainly not your average delicate flower.
Toronto singer/songwriter Megan Bonnell releases her new album, Magnolia, on April 15, 2016. Named for the flower that she and her mother (an avid gardener) would seek out in rural Canada in the springtime, and for the aptness in terms of the album’s themes of love, loss, and the passing of time.
Bonnell describes her musical style as “an eclectic blend of Folk and Pop”. In the writing of these eleven, very personal, songs, she made “a certain kind of sense of the world around me.”
Love came and went, and then came again, and my family found itself blessed by the birth of my beautiful sister’s first little girl. Things were changing. I wanted to move forward, but I didn’t want time to diminish history’s meaning.
CBC writer/associate producer, Andrea Warner, calls Magnolia:
A sparkling, wise, lush new album that offers both sun-soaked sparklers and gorgeously dark creations
So take a listen to the single below and to the entire album at CBC First Play.
Megan Bonnell’s Magnolia is like the flower itself: a stunner.
