ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Patricia Vonne, the multi-talented musician, actress, award winning filmmaker & two-time SXSW best female vocalist winner, is back with her seventh album Top of the Mountain, out May 25,2018 on her label Bandolera Records. The album is hot on the heels of her recent win at the Madrid International Film Festival for Best Animation awards for Huerta de San Vicente, the
music video and homage to Spanish poet Federico García Lorca. The song was off of her critically acclaimed all Spanish album Viva Bandolera that was featured on The Huffington Post and PRI The World alongside other tastemaker outlets.
Her new release is sure to continue the momentum where her last album left off, and was produced, mixed and engineered by Rick Del Castillo and Michael Ramos and mastered by Mark Hallman. The album features Vonne on lead vocals, acoustic guitar, castanets and electric guitar as well as special guest musicians Fort Worth sax virtuoso Johnny Reno, Grammy award winner Max Baca of Los TexManiacs on the bajo sexto, David Grissom, Grammy award winner Joe Reyes and Robert LaRoche on guitar and Scott Plunkett(of Chris Isaak’s band) on the keyboard. The album features co-writes with Joe King Carrasco, Alejandro Escovedo, Willie Nile, Steven Medina Hufsteter of the Cruzados and longtime performing and songwriting partner Robert LaRoche.
Vonne enthusiastically states about the new album, I am very proud of this new work. Top of the Mountain celebrates the defiant human spirit in the midst of adversity and the Higher Power that lights our path. Hailed as a the Renaissance woman of Austin, Texas by the New York Times, Patricia Vonne has claimed many titles in her illustrious career: singer, songwriter, bandleader, actress, activist and award-winning filmmaker. As one of 10 wildly creative offspring growing up in San Antonio, she and her siblings were encouraged to find their own creative paths. Exploring various artistic outlets throughout her career, she found herself immersed in writing, recording music and developing her musicianship. This ninth-generation Tejana has absorbed just about every indigenous musical style Texas has on offer, and can summon anyone in the flick of a castanet or guitar pick, notes the Houston Press. Noted as an excellent singer songwriter (Uncut) and abeguiling storyteller (Harp) with a dramatic songwriting flair (No Depression), Vonne is a one-of-a-kind Tex-Mex spitfirewith a Rock n Roll heart. (Austin American Statesman)

Now, with the release of her seventh album, Top of the Mountain, Vonne reaches new heights in her musical career. Vonne’s new effort incorporates all the multi-faceted components that define her unique musical persona: rock, folk, flamenco, bilingual Tex-Mex and Latin strands that, taken together, form a rich and colorful tapestry. The defiant, stand-your-ground title track sets a declamatory tone as the rest of the album winds a sinuous path through the border radio groove of Lil’ Lobo, the careening rocker Graceland Trip, Madre de Perla, a flamenco-flavored tribute to Vonne’smother, the spaghetti western soundtrack that is Western Blood, and much more.

Featuring co-writes with Joe King Carrasco, Alejandro Escovedo, Willie Nile, Steven Medina
Hufsteter of the Cruzados and longtime performing and songwriting partner Robert LaRoche, Vonne is “the Tejano embodiment of fierce merited success” Track Rambler
