Devon’s Roni took a break from music to focus on motherhood and now returns with the hauntingly beautiful Baby Bird, a song which Eva Cassidy, Celine Dion or even Bonnie Raitt could have easily recorded. But in her own voice it has even greater depth of meaning and will have your spine all tingly. It really is a magical listening experience. Blown away by what we have heard, we touched base with Roni to take on a trip down memory lane.
