Hailing from Austin, Texas, live music capitol of the world, Black Bone Child is a creation like no other. In a world of music hybrids, members Donny James and Kenneth M. are offering a new incite into the world of blending the old with the new. Between an exciting fresh take on slide guitar and driving distorted bass lines, this energetic and rhythmically based rock is sure to keep the dance floors packed and listeners hanging on every note.
In the spring of 2008, in association with White Door Entertainment, BBC has self-produced their debut album at White Door Studios in Austin, TX. The result is a product that showcases not only BBC’s songwriting and playing abilities, but also their talents from the other side of the microphone as engineers and producers and even their eye for graphic design. Black Bone Child is a perfect example of a growing niche of completely self-produced “Do it yourself” musicians, paving the way through an industry clustered with ancient business models.
"Black Bone Child, flat out rocks! Killer guitars, big beat, V-8 American rock 'n roll..."
-Bryan Beck (107.1 KGSR - Austin, TX)
“It’s that grip-it-and-rip-it rock & roll, full-throttled and hollow-body-distorted, power riffs ripping the straight and narrow track laid out by this Austin duo.”
-Chase Hoffberger (The Austin Chronicle)
"Black Bone Child is an exciting new group and one of my favorite discoveries of the summer. A little Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, a little Black Keys, a little blues, and still distinctive, dynamic, and original. I think the entire album is outstanding but love "Time Pass Me By" and "Light Up The Sky." They are in featured rotation on Cabo Wabo Radio and we look forward to whatever they come up with in the future."
-Shadoe Stevens (CaboWaboRadiodotnet - Los Angeles, CA)
“Black Bone Child rocked. I was passing by Friends and heard them. 2 hours later I was blown away. The dirtiest, sexiest rock ever. They jumped all over the stage and had me dancing like a crazy woman. Please play "Make Me Bleed". That is my favorite song. I bought the cd and already know all the words.”
-Amanda Sorenson (101X Concert Review – Austin, TX)
