Deni Bonet Wikipedia
Deni Bonet is a US-born singer/songwriter, electric violinist, and multi-instrumentalist. She began her professional career in the house band of National Public Radio’s Mountain Stage radio show. She left to pursue a solo career and also became a prolific session musician. She has toured and recorded with many notable performers including Cyndi Lauper, R.E.M., Sarah McLachlan, Richard Barone, and Robyn Hitchcock, and has released several CDs of her own original music.
Deni has performed on several national television shows, including Saturday Night Live, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Today Show, and Last Call with Carson Daly. She was also a guest on an episode of the nationally syndicated Nate Berkus Show, discussing her unique holiday decorating style, and was featured in an episode of Fox Television's Ambush Makeover.
Deni was featured in the Jonathan Demme movie Storefront Hitchcock performing alongside Robyn Hitchcock. She was also the subject of a Wall Street Journal article on how artists were affected by the downturn in the economy, and a Billboard magazine article on her NYC-area cable TV show "Duets with Deni".
"Duets" featured live performances by local and international performers, accompanied by Deni. Each 30-minute show featured two songs written by the guest, two written by Deni, and the show ended with a cover tune chosen by both Deni and her guest. Season One featured Sean Altman, Jenny Bruce, Dave Foster, Roger Greenawalt, Lach, Richard Barone, Robyn Hitchcock, Kimberley Rew, and Bari Koral. Season Two featured Jon Spurney, Bill Clift, Christine Ohlman, Mary Lee Kortes, John Wesley Harding, and Patti Rothberg.
Deni's music has been featured in several television shows, including Cathouse and Passions, and she has scored the soundtracks of the American Civil War Drama Red Legged Devils and the recently released Western Drama West of Thunder, in which she also appears. Bonet is also featured in Richard Barone's "'cool blue halo' 25th Anniversary Concert" DVD released in winter 2012.
She is an endorsee of Barcus-Berry Electric Violins, Martin Guitars, Kala Brand Ukuleles, Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, and Thomastik-Infeld Strings in the USA and worldwide. Deni Bonet also operates OverdubStrings.com, an online business that creates and arranges violin, fiddle, and accordion tracks for studio and home recording projects.
Deni was honored to be invited to accompany Irish multi-platinum performer Mundy (born Edmund Enright) at the official White House St Patrick's Day reception in Washington DC, where they performed several songs for President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, the Taoiseach (Prime Minister) of Ireland, and several hundred invited guests.
In February 2017 Deni released the all-instrumental album Bright Shiny Objects on Zip Records, distributed on Sony RED in the US and Rough Trade in the Benelux countries. Featuring songs co-written with Stephen Gaboury, Richard Barone and Jon Cobert among others, the album was recorded with world-class session musicians including Shawn Pelton, Will Lee, Steve Holley, Graham Maby, and Liberty DeVitto. Produced by Emmy award-winning engineer Paul Bevan , recorded and mixed by Robert L. Smith, and mastered by Scott Hull at Masterdisk, the album showcases Deni’s broad musical talent across a wide variety of musical genres. Shortly thereafter she performed 3 of her original songs live at Carnegie Hall, one of the highlights of her musical career so far.Deni Bonet - Bright Shiny Objects (2017) Main performerR.E.M. - Out Of Time (2016) played ViolinTiny Tim - Tiny Tim's America (2016) played Accordion and ViolinLarry Groce, Michael Cerveris and Everybody - Take Me Home Country Roads (2016) played ViolinHonor Finnegan - Roses And Victory (2016) played ViolinThe Junior League - Also Rans (2015) played Violin, Viola and String ArrangementsAmy Soucy - This River (2015) played ViolinKevin Brown - Grit (2015) played ViolinRebecca Lowe - Rebecca Lowe (2015) - string arrangements, played ViolinsEupana - So Many Suns (2014) string arrangements, played Violin and ViolaJudy Kass - Better Things (2014) played Violin and ViolaDeni Bonet - It's All Good (2013) Main performerJade Summers - Vintage (2013) played Violin, Viola and String ArrangementsThe Junior League - You Should Be Happy (2013) played Violin, and String ArrangementsFriction Farm - I Read Your Book (2013) played ViolinThe Fishkillers - West Of Thunder (2013) played Violin, Viola, Accordion, Ukulele and VocalsPete Seeger - God's Counting On Me, God's Counting On You (2012) played Violin, and ChorusRichard Barone - Cool Blue Halo 25th Anniversary Concert (2012) played ViolinArlon Bennett - World Of Possibility (2012) played ViolinGathering Time - Red Apples And Gold (2012) played ViolinKati Mac - Save Me From Myself (2012) played ViolinPinataland - Hymns For The Dreadful Night (2011) played Violin and ViolaRichard X.
