She’s Mrs. Graham Bonnet to you sir… and she anchors the Graham Bonnet Band.

Though the legendary septuagenarian Lancashire UK rock legend is allegedly a fine player; lead crooning and playing bass are oft at odds, hence the need for a lower register resource dedicated solely to the task at hand, or in her case, plectrum.

For the record, Bonnet’s bassists of yore are A list: Roger Glover, Gary Shea, Chris Glen, and Chuck Wright to cite a few.

Enter Beth Ami-Heavenstone who cites Sir Paul, James Jamerson, Jack Bruce, and John Paul Jones – the usual boomer suspects – as her influences.

She’s Bonnet’s bottom – outlining the changes with the utmost economy by way of a massive Fender P resonance, and SVT amps and cabinets.
