Fast Five: Sonia Leigh



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I started writing music as soon as I learned 2 chords on the guitar. I was 10. I’ve pondered other careers like working in radio, as an A&R for a label, management, music industry things. But if I didn’t do anything related to music I guess I’d be an author or a veterinarian.

How would you describe your music?

It’s versatile it’s always growing and evolving it started country and formed into country rock then Indie Rock now it’s kind of leaning towards Pop, rock, country.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

I’ve been releasing singles as an independent artist. Last year I released my EP Counting Skeletons on iTunes thanks to a kick starter campaign my fans encouraged. Then last summer I released “Put It In Your Pocket” to siriusxm The Highway and it went over so well I’ve decided to release it here in the UK sping/summer 2015
I plan to do a lot of co writing and touring as well.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

I would love to write and duet with Sia. I think she’s brilliant and it would be a blast!

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

Oh that is not an easy question to answer, so I will answer unfairly. I would probably make a mix CD while the plane was going down or the ship was sinking! Otherwise, Bob Dylan Blood On The Tracks, or Bruce Springsteen Darkness On The Edge Of Town, or 2-Pac All Eyes On Me, or Sia 1000 forms of fear. Ahhhhh! So many to choose from!
