I’m a singer, songwriter and actor (among many other things) originally from Melbourne, Australia, now living in Los Angeles. 

As an actor, I’ve been fortunate to work on a number of Australian TV shows, and I’m best known for my role in Star Wars Episodes 2 and 3 as Beru, the woman who goes on to raise Luke Skywalker. 

As a singer songwriter, I’ve written with some amazing writers and had a number of songs and compositions featured in TV shows and Films (‘Life Unexpected’, ‘The Three Hikers’, ‘Losing In Love, ’Expecting’, ‘Grantham and Rose’ and the upcoming ‘Miss Arizona’) 

In 2013 I released ‘Bittersweet EP’ which was produced by the incredibly talented Emile Kelman. That was my first step into being an independent artist. It was a really meaningful thing to raise all the money via a successful Indie Go Go campaign and release 4 songs that were really close to my heart. 

My song ‘Ariella’ won the singer songwriter category of the UK songwriting contest in 2013 and ‘Bittersweet EP’ was nominated for an Independent Music Award in 2016. 

Recently I’ve started producing my own music. It’s been a big learning curve, but a hugely satisfying one… I hope to release some of those songs later this year.

I’ve also been working on a duo project with Ben Shaw, called ‘Coruscant’. 

As well as music and acting, I’ve become very passionate about living a balanced life and emphasizing self-care, health and wellness in my own day-to-day. 

I also believe we each have a unique calling, a ‘soul purpose’, a gift that only we can bring to the world. So I strive to connect more and more deeply to what that is for me, express it in the world, and hopefully inspire others to do the same.


 
Bonnie Piesse is a true story teller and has a unique ability to deliver honest emotion. The timbre of her voice, in particular, delivers sweet realness that touches her audience.

Thanks for singing to us, your songs are so enchanting, especially the lines of the truth needing no soldier and no one ever winning a war. And the guitar music in that song is awesome. I imagine how beautiful your voice could sing our traditional songs in Spanish, it was a very special experience knowing you. Thanks, your friend Julian.
