New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Nashville based singer/songwriter Sonia Leigh is about to shake up the Country music scene. Having garnered a wealth of experience since her relocation to Country music's capital city aged just 17, Leigh is ready to redefine the genre. Leigh brings a fresh, progressive sound to the table. Her relentless spirit is felt in every inflection of her unmistakable drawl. This musical pioneer has blended her many influences into a refreshing, compelling sound all her own. 'Her talent is undeniable,' says Chuck Dauphin of MusicNewsNashville. 'Sonia Leigh is an artist that sets herself apart from the pack.'
Having spent the formative years of her career as an independent artist, Leigh's strength as a songwriter saw her catch the eye of the Grammy Award winning Zac Brown Band, who invited her out on the road. A meeting of the musically minded prompted the unforgettable co-writes, 'Goodbye in Her Eyes' and 'Sweet Annie', both of which topped the US Country Airplay charts.
With Leigh in demand as a co-writer, she continues to focus on her own musical output. Having released her last EP 'Counting Skeletons' in 2014, Leigh has been impressing audiences around the world with her new striking, genre-defying anthems. Having scored radio hits stateside with the summery 'Put It In Your Pocket' and the emotionally charged 'When We Are Alone', Leigh demonstrates that she is an artist unafraid to wear her heart on her sleeve or to push the boundaries of creativity.
Sonia Leigh's music is a melting pot of indie, pop, and country rock. Though her universally appealing style defies simple genre categorization, it is familiar enough to pull you in and make you want to hear more. Leigh's live performance is incomparable. Jen Swirsky of CMChatLive.com observed of a recent performance, "As always, Sonia proceeded to open her mouth and cause everybody around her to abruptly close their's and pay explicit attention to her."
Leigh has performed at many of America's legendary venues and amphitheaters including Red Rocks, The Gorge, and The Ryman Auditorium to name a few. She has shared the stage and garnered praise from some of the biggest names in music including Eric Church, Kid Rock, Jake Owen, Loretta Lynn, Amos Lee, Uncle Kracker, Blackberry Smoke, Billy Currington, Willie Nelson, Brantley Gilbert, Eli Young Band, Kenny Chesney, Little
Big Town, and more.
