Though she is only nineteen years of age, it would be hard to believe that this is Haley Bonar's third full length release. This is the part where one would customarily gush about how her songwriting and purity of voice evoke a maturity beyond her age - and it's true, but you need the facts... You need to know why she is worth paying attention to... Well, for starters, her previous self-released CD sold over 1000 copies in the Dakotas, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, mostly sold at live shows. Starting out in coffee houses, her fan base has grown based upon her powerful shows and unique talent. Early reviews are calling ...the size of planets the triumphant arrival of this young artist. She will be on the road with Low, spring 2003, and will be touring extensively throughout the U.S. this year. ...the size of planets was recorded in an old church, Sacred Heart Studios in Duluth (same studio and engineer as Low's trust) and features spacious arrangements around Haley's guitar/Rhodes piano and voice songs. Her style leans a little toward Americana, but this is no bandwagon-jumping ex-indie-rocker who has recently discovered the folkways recordings - This is pure talent and shiveringly honest songwriting. Anyone who has seen the Black Hills of South Dakota, where Haley was raised, will recognize her as the real thing.
