Bonnie Milne is an unlikely “pop star.” With the release of her latest single, the classically trained pianist and composer has managed to crossover by reaching the UK iTunes Pop Songs chart. “New Beginnings” reached #60 last week. The single release comes on the heels of her 2021 album release, “Anticipation.”
Bonnie’s “Classical meets Pop” brand was inspired by the greats of classical music such as Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin, blended with contemporary instrumental musicians such as Ludovico Einaudi, David Tolk, Piano Guys, and the popular sounds of Sarah McLachlan, Alanis Morissette and Taylor Swift.
Bonnie’s instrumental music is described as flowing, melodic, playful, deeply emotional and even intense at times. She has her own sense of dissonance to harmony that is unique to her, moving from major to minor and back, creating an emotional journey for the listener. Bonnie enjoys performing in the outdoors, surrounded by natural beauty.
