Hailed as a “Renaissance woman of Austin, Texas” by the New York Times, Patricia Vonne has claimed many titles in her illustrious career: singer, songwriter, bandleader, actress, activist and award-winning filmmaker. As one of 10 wildly creative offspring growing up in San Antonio, she and her siblings were encouraged to find their own creative paths. Exploring various artistic outlets throughout her career, she found herself immersed in writing, recording music and developing her musicianship. This ninth-generation Tejana “has absorbed just about every indigenous musical style Texas has on offer, and can summon anyone in the flick of a castanet or guitar pick,” notes the Houston Press. Noted as "an excellent singer songwriter" (Uncut) and "a beguiling storyteller" (Harp) with a "dramatic songwriting flair" (No Depression), Vonne is a one-of-a-kind “Tex-Mex spitfire with a Rock n Roll heart” (Austin American Statesman). Now, with the release of her seventh album, “Top of the Mountain,” (by Bandolera Records) Vonne reaches new heights in her musical career.
