Bonnie Murray Tamblyn has been a singer and songwriter for over 4 decades, writing the Top 40 country hit, “I Hope you Understand when I’m Gone” sung by Dottsy on RCA records.
Bonnie was signed to Epic Records and opened
for such iconic bands as Dave Mason and Fleetwood Mac. Tamblyn’s musical roots originated in the 70’s in Hollywood, CA where much of L.A.’s live music scene was centered.
She began writing her own contemporary compositions,
gravitating towards Rock, Blues & Country music. Bonnie played solo in all the major cities in California, and built a musical cadre of friends.
She eventually formed her first band, Blue Heaven, a solid Folk-Rock group with stellar players who continue to play with her today.
Tamblyn spent many years in the Louisiana music circuit as well, playing with such blues legends as Big
Luther Kent, Duke Bardwell & Casey Kelly, a journey that influenced much of her creative voice and song.
In 2012, Bonnie and Blue Heaven released the
album, “Winter Wind.” Tamblyn continues to play as a solo artist, often accompanied by her daughter, actress/poet Amber Tamblyn. She is a member of the Recording Academy, the founder & executive producer of the June Lake Loop Mountain Music Festival (June Lake, CA) & the founder of the non-profit June Lake Loop Performing Arts Association www.JuneLakeArts.org.
