Tilla, Belana and Daniel started to align their individual characters to raise bona rhodes in autumn 2019. Inspired by the twang from folky legends, the band is evolving their music fervently. Based in the northern part of Switzerland, surrounded by quiet woods, with the help of their vocal harmony and velvet stringed instruments, they intend to guide you to a cozy inner space, where this carefully arranged music is desired to meet you in intimacy.
After they put out their first live performance on Youtube, which shows a persistent and unusual rise of views, they played a chosen few living room concerts and small stages. In August 2020 they sold out the FreshFestival in Winterthur. Thrilled by the amazing crowd and the lovely host, they went back to Daniel’s studio, adding gritty synthesizers and a mellow piano to their new songs and running everything through an old fender super reverb amplifier.
In November 2020, bona rhodes reach out to a remote place in the alps to record their first EP „the rye“. Eager to catch the precious moment, they assembled their instruments and put all their heart in these recordings.
