The songs on Bonzie’s debut full-length album, Rift Into The Secret of Things, brim with unbridled intensity and fiery alt-rock spirit. Bonzie — Chicagoan Nina Ferraro — isn’t a traditional confessional singer-songwriter. She’s more of an observer and commentator who expresses herself with unwavering honesty, and delivers her lyrics with powerful abandon. It’s partly for this reason that Ferraro has chosen to release her songs under the moniker Bonzie — an image and word she’s long associated with her creative output.
