Bonniesongs Performs ‘Get Back’ Live at Enmore
The music of Bonniesongs (Bonnie Stewart) is an intoxicating blend of earthy guitar tones and ethereal vocal layers. Somehow, it captures the closeness of an intimate conversation and the grandeur of wide-open spaces at the same time.
And though Bonniesongs was in stripped-back mode for her Live at Enmore session, the elemental forces of her style were still present as she performed Get Back.
A memoir of isolation, it climbs dramatic, dynamic peaks, and also brings listeners close, creating an atmosphere of contemplation.
Get Back was Mixed and Recorded by Dan Shaw, Radi Safi, and Owen Penglis
Joined by guitarist Rhys Mottley, who provided the delicate, clean soundscapes of Get Back, the voice of Stewart overflowed with power and filled the studio with vital energy.
Here’s what Bonniesongs had to say about Get Back:
“It’s a new song I wrote in New Zealand last year. Me and my partner decided to hide out there in the initial ‘Covidness’ The song’s just about processing all that craziness… being apart from family and friends“.

The Live at Enmore series is made possible with the help of our tech partner Audio-Technica. Here’s a list of the microphones that were used to capture this incredible performance:
For a clean, consistent capture of a dynamic vocal, the AE4100 ticks just about every box.
Getting the tone just right on a guitar cabinet can be a significant challenge. The AE2300’s sophistication and frequency response make it easy.
A ribbon mic is often teamed up with a dynamic on the guitar to capture the cabinet’s rich bottom end. The phantom-powered AT4081 offers up the smoothness of a ribbon, with significantly more headroom.
