World Cafe Next: Bonnie Bishop

May 30, 2016

Many have discovered Bonnie Bishop through Bonnie Raitt, who recorded Bishop's song "Not Cause I Wanted To" on her latest album, Dig In Deep. But Bishop's own new album, Ain't Who I Was, is a treat in and of itself. Produced by Nashville superproducer Dave Cobb, the album is reminiscent of the sound of Dusty Springfield's classic Dusty In Memphis in the way it straddles the line between soul and country.

While writing for Rolling Stone in the mid-'90s, Rich Cohen got an enviable assignment: basically, to embed himself with The Rolling Stones during their tour behind Voodoo Lounge. It was the start of a relationship that's given Cohen a unique vantage point to write his new Stones history, The Sun & The Moon & The Rolling Stones. Cohen's perspective is also shaped — favorably — by the fact that he didn't grow up with The Rolling Stones' music in the '60s and '70s.
