Even at the tender age of 21 Bonnie Thorn has generated great excitement and interest from music fans impressed by her soulful interpretations of the classic jazz repertoire and contemporary nu-soul songs, along with her own impressive original compositions.
Little Jazz Bird showcases Bonnie’s vocal talents with selections covering the past 100 years of popular song from the Gershwins to Amy Winehouse and beyond.
Her voice has echoes of the great 20th century songstresses and garnered comparisons with Judy Garland, Peggy Lee and Doris Day, and with her strong swing, faultless phrasing and deep musicality one hears the influence of her idol Blossom Dearie.
With Australian music theatre luminaries John and Fiona Thorn (Pastel Vespa) as parents, Bonnie has grown up immersed in the international cabaret scene, and is delighted to make her Edinburgh Fringe debut at the Royal Society of Edinburgh theatre.
She is accompanied on piano by her father John Thorn, well known as musical director to cabaret stars such as Meow Meow, Barb Jungr and Caroline Nin.
Bonnie Thorn has an exciting new voice you will remember forever. Her Edinburgh debut is a show not to be missed.
