Bonerama's New Single Features Michael McDonald & Pays Tribute to Allen Toussaint
If you haven't had a chance to check out Bonerama's new single featuring Michael McDonald "Empty World" yet, watch the teaser video below. Released on Basin Street Records, this song pays tribute to Allen Toussaint and all of New Orleans' lost legends.
Bonerama bandleader and songwriter Mark Mullins explains, “I was pretty much devastated when I heard the news of Allen’s passing. His influence on me as a musical hero, arranger, composer, producer is immeasurable.” Mullins penned “Empty World” on the very same day he learned of Toussaint’s passing, and the song came together in about an hour. While working on the 40th Anniversary Tour of The Last Waltz, Mullins asked the legendary vocalist Michael McDonald to perform on the track, and McDonald agreed delivering an outstanding performance.
Bonerama is currently touring. Check out a show if you're lucky enough to have them visit your area and officially have your mind blown!
