Album Notes
"It's not everyday that you find a record from a road-hardened tour dog with one track sung in Japanese, guest appearances from Grant Lee Buffalo's Grant Lee Phillips and Joey Peters, and an overall sound that's as reminiscent of Lennon and McCartney as it is of Cheap Trick and Ben Folds. Bill Bonk delivers on his second solo release as he sings and plays guitar, bass, harmonica, flute, mandolin, keyboard, and short-wave radio.

"Bonk, a veteran of tours with John Prine, Ron Sexsmith, Aimee Mann, and Shawn Mullins, to name a few, plays just about everything you can imagine and plays it well, at that. His songs are slick, dreamy, power-pop constructions that pound and jerk, hum sweetly, and enchant. Whether it's the twang-tinged "Rings a Bell" that stalks slowly under a Radiohead-like melody, or the tire-screeching, groovy opener "Everybody," Bonk demonstrates what an accomplished musician who's spent years with great artists can do when left alone to write. Bonk is impressive musically and lyrically-witty, accessible, and unswervingly cool."

- Performing Songwriter magazine

You may recognize "Halfway Home" and "Rings a Bell" from recent episodes of the ABC-TV hit series, "Alias". "Faithful" was featured on the WB Network's program, "Felicity" and "In the Back Of My Mind" just aired on CBS-TV's "Joan Of Arcadia".

This is a great cd.
This is a great CD. I am so glad that Alias (the tv show) is introducing us to some artist that we might not other wise have found. The artist are so refreshing, and I could listen to the music all day.


Love this album! HIGHLY recommended! I first found Bill through purchasing a Brothers Figaro album, got in touch with him, got the Spaghetti Western album, and have been a fan ever since!


Doesn't get much better than this.
Bill Bonk's album eveningshade is perfect for unwinding from the day. It's the sort of CD you listen to as you're driving home in traffic, and suddenly bumper to bumper doesn't seem so bad.

What a musician!
Just listened to this new buy this morning -- HAD to play the first and last tunes twice each: Those two alone are well worth the price of this CD. Great muscian, great music. SO glad I heard about Bill Bonk through CD Baby!!
