In 2004 she released her debut album Trouble to little success and was subsequently dropped from her label. The album’s slower, poetic and emotive style lacked the Bonnie-isms and double-entendre lyrics she later picked up through her 9 years of songwriting. In 2013, she began the difficult transition back into the spotlight carefully positioning herself as a new pop-girl with a retro-throwback style, which she has called “street chic” combining thrift-store items with luxury brands and always wearing designer shoes.
For now Bonnie McKee remains a bubbling-under pop-act, perfecting her craft for another shot at the top with her upcoming visual EP ahead of her sophomore album’s spring release. If her “inbetwingle” (between singles, her word) buzz song “Sleepwalker” is a sign of things to come, with its darker tones and Michael Jackson throwback zombie-themed video, then I’m more than here for it. Keep your ears tuned for new music from the popsicle-orange haired artiste because I have a good feeling she’s not gonna throw in the towel any time soon.
