"Regina is a gem...she was definitely the most soulful singer there. She got a standing ovation from the Gloucester crowd...that is incredibly rare to see from a New England crowd."    Gloucester Blues Festival        Greater Boston Music      Aug 2018

​"Love Letter"

#1 on the Roots Music Report Soul Blues Album Chart !


Inspired by early Blues and R&B legends of the 60's and 70's, Regina began singing and playing piano at the tender age of five. Ten years later, after picking up a guitar, she was performing. As the years went by, she had two children and raised them on her own.  Life and love gave Regina more than enough inspiration to sing the blues. Her new album, "Love Letter" has two songs spinning on SiriusXm BB King's Bluesville station's Top 15 Rack Of Blues, charting in the Top 10 in heavy rotation. The original song, "Don't You Put Your Hands On Me" produced by Tomas Doncker and James Dellatacoma for True Groove Records, tackles the issues of domestic violence and sexual harrassment. Love Letter, which  features Doncker, Michael Hill and some of the county's premier musicians is filled with songs of empowerment. She also wrote the songs, both music & lyrics, on her stunning debut recording "Open Up the Door."  This collection of tunes represents modern blues with a ton of soul and storytelling at it's finest.  The album was a #1 Pick To Click and is still receiving airplay around the globe. Regina's scorching vocals, songwriting and keyboard playing are garnering worldwide attention. 

​​​​​"Her latest single on True Groove Records "Don't You Put Your Hands On Me," proves there is nothing more attractive than a strong woman...Regina's singing is so thrilling...they ride a terrific lick, Regina wrote the song along with two legends: Tomas Doncker and frequent Regina collaborator Michael Hill) all the way through...Regina has some Etta James in her delivery and the shouts of "no more"  during the cods sure explains where the hurt and anger belong!"

"The latest single release by R&B powerhouse vocalist Regina Bonelli, of Brooklyn , NY finds her unleashing a forceful attack on abuse directed at women.  The raging musical support underscores the seriousness intent of her message. The slide guitar and guitar of Michael Hill (Michael Hill's Blues Mob) and Tomas Doncker push it forward.

Regina clearly remains a musical force to be reckoned with. She manages to hand-pick players that match her musical vision to a "T." More relevant music is in store for us. Be sure to catch her live show, as she is a ball of energy.  I had the pleasure of seeing and meeting her at the Riverfront Blues Festival in Wilmington, Delaware this past summer."

"Regina Bonelli is the Italian spitfire whose Love Letter has been burning up the blues charts since its release .Among the power of her music, and certainly on stage (I’ve been dying to see her on stage for a year now), is the power of absolute self-knowledge: she isn’t playing, this is blues for keeps. She and Tomas shook and shaked and Regina went from a whisper to a scream, taking a breather only to speak a few words."
