Sydney-based singer-songwriter, guitarist and violinist, Bonnie Kellett’s Devil is an autobiographical country rockin' track about finding a positive outcome to a negative situation.

Written by Bonnie and produced by ARIA award-winning producer, Govinda Doyle, Devil is the third single from Bonnie's soon to be released debut album, Hidden Spirit. It was the first song Bonnie wrote completely on her own, inspired partly by someone in her love life.

She explains, “I had gone to Melbourne for a week of song writing with a friend. On the drive back to Sydney, I kept hearing the lyrics ‘dark eyes and devilish grin, dragging me into a world of sin’ and that was it. I pulled over and wrote them down in my phone and there they sat for about six months. Then, out of nowhere, one evening I started to hear the beginning of the song in my head. I pulled out a pen and began to write… the whole song fell out of me in around an hour.”

The accompanying music video, which today premieres exclusively on Countrytown, was filmed at The Old Manly Boatshed Manly by Jake Davey Studios and features Jay Parrino, Chloe Maree, Dingo John, Stuart Kennedy, Eloise Few, Danielle Mullins, Kelvin Binns, Eloise Jones, Millie Gordon, Benjamin Stanford, Brolga Miller and Daryl Richardson.

Bonnie says, "This video was so much fun to shoot. It was so great working with Jake Davey Studios again on our second music video together. I am so grateful we had the most amazing team behind the scenes and cast of people working together to bring it to life. It was so much fun to work with Jay Parrino (AGT and The Voice) as "the bad boy". He is just the most incredible guitarist and loveliest person to work with. You may also notice some other cute cameos in there!!! The club scenes were shot at the iconic Old Manly Boatshed, which I love performing at whenever I get the chance. It really felt like the community came together to film this music video and I can't wait to share it."

Devil follows her previous single Lost And Found and debut Boots, which reached #2 on the iTunes Country Music Charts and #32 on all genres.

Growing up with a musical family in Willunga (a small country town an hour south of Adelaide, Bonnie was brought up on folk festivals and jam nights. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Music from the Australian Institute of Music and an Advanced Diploma, she has performed alongside artists like Jon English, Kasey Chambers and Lee Kernaghan as well as in Nashville.

Bonnie was also a Groundwater’s KIX Start competition finalist in 2021.

Particularly inspired by singer-songwriters Miranda Lambert, Taylor Swift, Shania Twain and Amy Shark, Bonnie’s lyrics are raw and authentic with a pinch of attitude and wit. With skills in looping, Bonnie also draws creativity from musicians such as Ed Sheeran to incorporate her violin into her live solo performances.

With an endorsement from QSC, Bonnie has performed her originals as part of their online Touchmix Sessions. She has also performed looping videos for Boss/Roland Australia and in 2021 performed her original song, Dancing Barefoot, live on Channel 7’s Sunrise.
