A rising star in her adopted hometown of Nashville, Sonia Leigh has become a popular figure on Music Row, with a pair of #1 hits to her name and a reputation as a writer who stretches country music far beyond its limits. No stranger to the mainstream, her album 1978 December (2011 on Zac Brown’s Southern Ground) reached number 43 on the country charts. Her independent release “When We Are Alone” was featured in the hit television show Nashville and landed her a cameo.
Yet Leigh saves the most forward-thinking music for herself: from the roots-rock swagger of her first Top 45 single, “My Name is Money,” to her breezy summertime hit “Put It In Your Pocket,” she’s carving a unique path that winds in and out of country music. Recent recording sessions in Los Angeles and London have found her branching out even further. Leigh has proven to be a shapeshifter, releasing the timely dark pop anthem “Live Like Ghosts”, the latest in a pair of singles featuring the mysterious Rob The Man.
Leigh is enjoying her independence, chasing down her muse no matter the direction it leads her. We’re lucky to be along for the ride.
Sonia Leigh plays the Still in Gadsden, AL on Sept. 9. Tickets are available here.
