HYANNIS – If you were from Mars and had no idea why Bonnie Raitt sold multiple platinum records and had garnered nine Grammys, or why she sold out the Melody Tent almost as soon as tickets went on sale this spring, you only had to listen to her sing “Angel From Montgomery” at the tent last night.
Raitt’s voice is sure-footed. It can soar effortlessly and put emotion into even a spoken verse. It’s stripped-down, ...

New West Records Publicity > Stephen Bruton It is with great sadness that we let you know Stephen Bruton passed away peacefully in his sleep on Saturday Morning. Stephen was a wonderful artist, a kind and generous man and dear friend to all of us here at New West. We will miss him dearly.
FROM BONNIE RAITT ON STEPHEN BRUTON:
Stephen and I met when I opened for Kris Kristofferson at the U. of M, Ann Arbor back in 1971. We bonded immediately and and grew even closer over the years, hanging at gigs, in Woodstock, LA,Austin and on the road. He has always been one of my closest friends, in music and in sharing our personal lives. We partied together, got sober around the same time and it's nearly impossible to imagine my life without him.
As a musician, he was one of the deepest, most intuitive, versatile and unique I've known. In both his songwriting, which stands alongside the best, and his incredible guitar playing. He truly was a musicians' musician, vastly underrated but hugely influential to everyone lucky enough to call him friend. I also loved him singing his own songs. His legendary sense of humor, wit, loyalty and generosity as a friend have always been what's so special about him as well. There's no one I would rather get into mischief with, and I sometimes couldn't even look over at him on stage without him cracking me up. He just brought me so much joy, as he did to everyone who knew or heard him. And we got each other through some of our darkest times, of which there have been many.
I will miss him and treasure his place in my heart and music every day of my life. I just hope I get to meet up with him again, and he'll be playing with Lowell, Stevie Ray and all the others we lost way too soon....
