Old Souls
New Beginnings

Autumn 2024

 I am excited to announce I will be heading into the studio in January 2024 to record my third full length album 'The Fool'.

Like any good adventure, the ending is always a little unclear when first we set out. 'The Fool' represents taking a leap of faith and beginning on a new musical journey where i can share a curated selection of the music i have composed over the past three years. The music I've chosen for this record balances the  depth, honesty, and fearless vulnerability of an old soul with joy, curiosity and playfulness of youth; a combination that is both candid and engaging. I look forward to sharing more on this exciting new project in the coming months.

Press Bio

Bonnie Northgraves is a Canadian trumpeter, vocalist, pianist, and composer based in Vancouver, BC. Her singing is smokey, rich, and explorative; her trumpet playing a call to the early jazz styles of New Orleans while being lyrical, intriguing, evolved, and playful. With one foot rooted in heritage and one foot leading forward she is an engaging musical powerhouse that is exciting, joyful, and chock full of personality. This strong combination has given wings to a music career thats seen her tour North America, Europe, China, and India. Bonnie has released two full length albums, one Ep, and has recorded as a sideperson on numerous albums. She is also the curator for the jazz programming at 2nd Floor Gastown (Water Street Cafe)

"For my money, Bonnie Northgraves is one of the most fun jazz musicians to listen to in the country. She plays the trumpet like nobody else, sings her heart out, and is just a master entertainer from beginning to end of every set."

-Tim Reinert, producer of the Infidels jazz podcast, record label, and curator of live jazz events.
