'Here I Am' was created with award winning producer, Bill Buckingham and features the talent of Robbie Steinnegger, Geoff Hicks, Lee Oliphant and Sue Leonard. By far her strongest album yet, Here I Am offers a string of prolific yet accessible songs that re-define the Indie tradition and transcend its boundaries. Bonnie Ste-Croix has risen to the occasion and delivered yet another testament to her propensity for her art, and created a work, that will inevitably become her trademark. The first sneak preview reviews on the new album offered:
â€œThe GaspÃ©, QuÃ©bec native possesses the songwriting prowess of storytellers Dar Williams, Shawn Colvin and Tom Waits, with an immediately recognizable, smoky voice that fluctuates between a sensual bluesy Bessie Smith, an assertive country-tinged Mary Chapin Carpenter, and a heartfelt acoustic rocker Sarah McLachlan.â€ B.L. Whitehall, Entertainment, Xtra West.
"Produced by Vancouver's Bill Buckingham and featuring some of our best players, this is a rich amalgam of writing styles from a fine singer (with)â€¦songs like 'Berry Point Road" showing loving attention to craft." John McLaughlin, Vancouver Province
