About the Release
The eleven-song album was recorded in March 2011 at f.Boo studios in Burbank, California with
Keven Brennan engineering.
If Marianne Faithful made a baby with Hank Williams and Edith Piaf jumped out of her grave to write
a song about how in love with that baby she is, it would sound something like Bonnie Tamblyn’s
“Winter Wind”.–Amber Tamblyn

Bonnie Murray Tamblyn is a musician, a mother and a mentor. As a lifelong musician, she has toured
extensively throughout the U.S. and recorded her songs with many notable musicians including Duke
Bardwell and Butch Hornsby, Merel Bregante and Al Garth. Her debut full-length CD, Return of the
Rainbow Girl (2006 Club Louisianne Records), was warmly received by critics and fans alike,
recognized for both its, “elemental blend of rock and blues sensibilities laid on a provocative
foundation of her early counter-cultural folkie roots, and for its rich and rollicking instrumental
layers.” As a pre-cursor to her forthcoming release, Winter Wind, Bonnie released two digital singles
in 2011 on Light Rail Records, Lil’ Wind and Love Is.
