New Country Rock Discovery: Haley Bonar - "Bad Reputation"
Haley Bonar is a singer/songwriter from Minnesota with a light, clear voice and a way with country rock (or Americana, whatever you may want to call it). It's not just voice/acoustic - there is a gently chugging rhythm section behind her almost-fragile vocal, and some really nice washes of guitar helping move it along.
This 2-song EP sounds really good. It will have to do for now, but she promises a full album in the spring.
