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 single, "Don't You Put Your Hands On Me" is already being broadcast on radio stations both in the US and abroad and is featured on SiriusXm BB King's BLuesviLLe station's Rack Of BLues. The original song, produced by Tomas Doncker and James Dellatacoma for True Groove Records, tackles the issue of domestic violence and is in advance of her upcoming album, Love Letter, which features Doncker, Michael Hill and some of the county's premier musicians. 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.
"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."
