With his highly individualistic approach to music making and the music industry, one that cherishes intimacy, community, mystery, and spontaneity; his brilliance has captivated fans and made Bonny one of our most influential and beloved songsmiths. Recent projects in 2012 include Now Heres My Plan (EP), Will Oldham on Bonnie “Prince” Billy (An Autobiography edited by Alan Licht, published by Norton), as well as two singles; Billy F. Gibbons/ Matt Sweeney & Bonny Billy “Oh Well” b/w “Storms”, and Dawn McCarthy & Bonny Billy “Christmas Eve Can Kill” b/w “Walkin the Dog”. In 2013, Bonny released a new full length record of duets with Dawn McCarthy on Drag City.
Fountainsun was founded in-larva in Autumn 2011. The core members are Fumie Ishii, of Tokyo and Daniel Higgs, of Baltimore. Both are committed, through sound and gesture, to participation in a song-sustained state of higher communication with all present at live concert events and in daily life. Stylistically, the duo employs a universal-folkpsalm form, with voice, strings, drums, etc., an “all are welcome” sound. The Fountainsun album, Music Today, is being prepared for release in July 2015.
