Atlanta singer-songwriter Sonia Leigh’s bio says her “songs explode with gritty vocals and poetically compelling lyrics, equal parts pain and pleasure.” How did she know we like both those things (preferably at the same time)?
We hope 5′ 4″ Sonia Leigh, diminutive in stature but huge on talent, doesn’t mind an immediate comparison to Melissa Etheridge.
How could she? Melissa’s all about the raw honesty and blunt rebellion wrapped up in guts and tenderness — and so is Sonia.
Witness her first single, “My Name Is Money,” a funky little number with deep country roots, infused with a touch of Memphis R&B and cautionary message about the evil dollar.
We know she’s not in it for the cash but we see big limousines and gold records in this lady’s future. That is, Sonia Leigh’s name is “money.”
